Swedish memories - the dinners with family



Having a chef in the family really helps when gathering my family. I am the only daughter of 7 kids in total you see. A normal number of people gathering is probably about 15 and to feed 15 people breakfast, lunch and dinner every day is a big job. Lucky enough this is the highlight of the year for Jay who happily spends hours preparing the most beautiful food for us all to indulge, come new caught fish or a homemade burgers on the grill by the beach... Dinner is a special time of the day.

This year was exceptional, I am not sure why. Maybe it was the incredible hot summer days with really warm long evenings that made it so special. Or just the fact that this year everything just worked well. The kids are older and more independent, not only when it comes to play but also more mature in what to eat and when. The days rolled on without obstacles, food melt downs or sugar crashes. Even though ice cream was on the daily menu as well as sweets and coffee bread, cookies and chips. And Jay's food of course... I have to say I thank my lucky star to have been blessed with such a talented cook as a husband. I've learned so much about food and cooking and I have grown to love food more than I ever did before meeting him. Nothing beats a great dinner with loved ones.

  6. I don't think you can beat eating good meal with friends and family. Sharing a bottle of wine, and plenty of time. Perfect in my opinion. x

  7. I enjoyed this glimpse into your large family. One of my goals as an early retiree is to play in the kitchen and become a more creative and adventurous cook. :) happy Monday!
