Hi guys, how are you?
I know it’s been a month since Christmas, but I still wanted to share the rest of our Christmas Food. You can read more about our Christmas Ham, if you’d like. In addition to our Swedish Christmas Ham, we also had a whole bunch other food.
Of course, we had to start the
day dinner with a warming mug of mulled wine.
My Mr. Awesome updated the recipe a little bit (more cloves, cinnamon and cardamom) and it turned out even better. While sipping on the Glögg we had a few appies (shrimp hors d’oeuvres, smoked salmon, roast beef roll-ups – sorry, no pic) and Swedish Christmas Ham.
We also made our own meatballs:
Among the side dishes, we had oven omelette (ugnsomelette) topped with Chanterelle Sauce (Kantarellstuvning), Jansson’s Frestelse (baked potato dish with anchovies, onions and cream) and baked tomatoes (in case someone would have preferred some veggies during this meat and carb-heavy day).
Unfortunately many of our friends left before we even had the desserts finished and out on the table…
Originally we were even planning on offering crackers, cheese and grapes, because we didn’t want our friends to leave hungry, but we ended up with so many leftovers and totally forgot about it. I just hope none of our guests left hungry…
We had a lot of fun this past Christmas, and I can’t believe that this week is already my birthday/the little guy’s 5-month birthday. The holidays went by so fast, yet I’m still blogging about it at the end of January… What can I say?
Well, only 11 more months till Christmas 2012, haha!
Anyone else also not realizing how fast time goes by???
