Ikväll blev det tre rätters middag hemma hos Svärföräldrarna, för att fira att det var fredagskväll, helg och bara för att det är trevligt att äta middag tillsammans ibland. Det var länge sen sist, många anledningar som gjort att vi helt enkelt inte kunnat äta tillsammans alla fyra.
Till förrätt blev det Fisksoppa med aioli och vitlöksbröd. Oh så gott!
Till den möra och rosa oxfilén blev det ugnsrostade rosmarinsdoftande rotfrukter bl.a. morötter, palsternacka, sötpotatis och vanlig potatis. Som serverades med en kall crème fraîche sås med smak av medelhavskryddor.
Det blev supergott, och köttet så där mört som bara en riktigt fin köttbit kan bli och grönsakerna knapriga men samtidigt mjuka och söta. Riktigt gott. Tror nog att det kommer bli en favorit i sommar!
//A three course dinner with the inlaws tonight, it’s been a while and it was just nice to have some time together, all four of us, and talk and enjoy ourselves over a good meal. We started with a beautifully creamy Saffron fish soup with aioli and garlic bread. Main course was a perfectly medium rare filet of beef served with roasted vegetables, carrots, jams, parsnip and potatoes. And for desert a chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and a warm raspberry compote. Yum! //
We woke up early eventhough we came “home” to My In-laws late. Adde was going skeet shooting so we got up together and made him breakfast. Andy’s Mom was up already, so we had some tea together before Andy left. It was slightly chilly… -21 C.
When Andy came home, he was slightly cold from quite a few hours in the – 21 C degree day… Andy’s mom had made Kroppkakor, Andy’s favorite food. A kind of Swedish potato-dumpling with bacon, onion and All spice-mixture. Served with lingon berry jam, melted butter and blackpepper. So yummy!
We showed Andy’s parents pictures from our trip to Egypt this Christmas with layover Istanbul. Lots of beautiful things to show and talk about. And since Andy’s parents were in Egypt for our wedding 2008, we wanted to tell them about my family in Egypt and so on.
Then we packed up or stuff, said goodbye to Andy’s parents and went back home. We stopped at the store and went home to watch a movie, The Illusionist and have a night.
A long but fun day today. A day in Linköping with shopping at among others Ikea, breakfast with Addes Mom, coffee at McDonalds, photo-shoot in the Winter Wonderland, cozying with my babe, meeting Hansson for dinner and laughs and then the longed-for movie The Hobbit. A really good day with lots of feel-good!
We visited my In-laws yesterday to spend some time together since we didn’t spend Christmas together. Dr. SpiderPig and his family were also there so there was a real family gathering.
We had dinner that was really yummy, a chicken and mushroom stew.
And then we had a mini Christmas gift giving… And receiving 🙂
A nice evening with the family!
The day started with baking Saffron Buns at the in-laws house and then a long breakfast, wish a second sitting of newly baked Saffron buns. Yum. Then Andy and I went into town for a trip to the jewelers, to see what kind of jewelry I’ll be making for my birthday present from my in-laws. Fun and really interesting. And I really think I’ve figured out what I might be wanting and how it’s going to look =) It’s going to be so much fun!
And after a few hours of shopping we got back home and had a really nice relaxing evening with the in-laws. A Saturday evening with the in-laws with great food, drinks, and company.
Steak, cheese platter, Gin&Tonic, Kom Loy, fire…
