Nu Är Det Jul Igen

You know it's going to be a special party when you get an invitation to come to my sister and her husband's beautiful home. They host an annual holiday party with a Swedish theme: smörgåsbord and korv-making all in one. Lots of family, lots of friends, lots of different ages and lots of FUN! Soon, I will post more of the people aspect, but for now, you'll get to see what happened at their shindig.
For those of you who don't know what korv is, it's rather like bratwurst. You add potatoes and onions and spices to ground-up meats, then put it in "casings" and boil it. It's a lot of work! (But, I was not the best worker...I chatted and snapped pictures instead...hey! someone's gotta do that!)
Thank you, Diann and Larry for your wonderful party...one NOT to miss! With tummies full of limpa bread and cheese, ham, rice pudding, Swedish meatballs and lingon berries, korv, boiled potatoes, herring (no thanks for me, personally!), cardamom bread and cookies, we headed off into the wintry evening with more than just food under our belts; we just made more sweet holiday memories!
