Now that we are past New Year's Day and Valentine's Day.
it must be time to post some Christmas photos:)
Our yummy smelling Christmas wreath--
I just took it down this week and it still looked good except for a few areas in the back;
yea for our humid winters!
(I know, you thought I would never say that)
My best friend always makes my wreaths-
we work together on the design I want each year;
this time I was into a semi-natural look.
Lefse--store bought this time but a necessary part of my smorgasbord!
This year I got my DH to take a teeny tiny bite of the lefse-
I was very happy he at least tried them!
We also had pickled herring (love, love),
pickled beets (yum)
and Swedish meatballs (big time yum)!
Mini Christmas stockings--
I bought several different kinds to use as napkin & eating utensil holders
(an idea I got from Bed, Bath & Beyond)...
but that didn't happen due to some circumstances,
so next year?
Christmas eggs: the 'tree' is a piece of dill--I think I saw that somewhere on the web;
the 'berry' is a piece of dried tomato rolled up. My DH & I liked them very much,
but next year I will use a pastry bag for the filling.
Pressgurka: peeled, scored, thinly sliced cucumber in a mixture of vinegar, sugar, salt. These are always good no matter the season and I have made them for a long, long time.
Pickled beets--store bought but oh so good!
I also bought an assortment of cheeses and goodies,
but we didn't eat them this night because it was so late in the day.
I love cheese from Scandinavia and have a weakness for Danish cookies:)
