A PRE CHRISTMAS SMORGASBORD!
|PHOTOS: SOPHIA HOME|
I do hope you have all had a happy weekend?
Ours has been a very special weekend all round!
On Friday we attended the most romantic and beautiful of family weddings in London….a lovely celebration of marriage and quite a party, with a wonderful feast and much dancing!
Although a little weary the next day, it was a dash back home to Kent so we could prepare for a special evening with our children, along with our eldest son's girlfriend, daughter's boyfriend and youngest son's best friend and of course my Swedish mother, without whom no 'Smorgasbord' would be complete!
One of the highlights of Christmas each year, is to prepare our traditional Scandinavian feast….a little earlier this year, as usually this is on Christmas Eve, but a lovely opportunity to introduce our guests to this favourite family celebratory meal and of course, the optional schnapps but compulsory singing!
Ham, meatballs, herring and 'Jahnsen's temptation' potato gratin are the highlight of the Smorgasbord, along with red cabbage, beetroot, cheeses and other delicious treats….
With the table set and candles lit…
I felt so happy to have all my family and their lovely friends around me...
And I can report….that with song sheets in hand, and my dear mother leading the charge, and of course, a glass of schnapps or two, they all embraced the singing with gusto!
Wishing you all a very happy week!
