It’s been a busy busy weekend here. Yesterday was fathers day in Sweden.

Mothers day is celebrated the same month as in the states but I have yet to find out why Fathers day is celebrated in November. Something I’ll have to Google I guess.

We woke Sunday to a gorgeous and chilly day.

I was looking forward to helping prepare, serve, and host 40 guests for our 3 course Sunday dinner honoring Fathers. Of course, we did spend most of Saturday accomplishing all the tasks that we could of ahead of time; table settings & flower arrangements created, china, flatware & stemware shined, vanilla bean creme brulee baked and chilled, Gorgonzola walnut butter prepared – I could go on & on but you get the point.

The dinners were absolutely delicious and the guests were very pleased. My fave? The perfectly cooked filet mignon with red wine mushroom sauce aside creamy pommes ducheese. You can’t do all this without help – it was certainly a group effort. Thanks to my honey, his brother, and my sister-in-law for another successful dinner party.


And to top it all off we were blessed with another gorgeous sunset over the lake. If you look closely you can see the frost on the practice green. Brrrr.

Dad, we miss you! Happy Fathers Day from Sweden.
