It is already Christmas.
Time really flies!!
This year we bought a Christmas tree,
not a real one but an artificial one
Some of the ornaments are my precious memories,
from Bloomingdales and Henri Bendel in New York,
from fairtrade shops in Dhaka,
from Harrods in London,
and from swedish Christmas bazar, etc.
This year my husband and I celebrated Christmas at home in Geneva.
We had Christmas dinner with a bit from Geneva and some from Sweden.
First course was foie gras and paté representing Genevese (or French) food.
Second course was Swedish.
Some pickled herrings (mastard flavor and "skärgårdssill"),
smoked salmon and gravlax
with gravlax sauce,
and boiled egg with some caviar.
Main course was also Swedish."Janssons frestelse"
(Jansson's temptation) and meatballs.
Of course with lingonberry jam.
In fact, "Julskinka"
(Christmas ham) is important dish,
but it's too big for us just 2 persons
We had prepared a plate of some cheese and dessert,
but we were totaly full up so we gave up!!
Dessert was "Bûche de Noël"
Now it is less than one week left until the new year.
May the new year bring you happiness!!
