I spent a week in Gothenburg with my family over the holidays. My mother had decorated the house really nicely with amongst others, this handmade candle and a super duper old tomte.
We ate a lot of very good traditional christmas food, mine was veganized of course! Here are the Vegan Swedish Christmassy Meatballs and brussel sprouts. In the background are some red cabbage.
The centerpiece on the Swedish christmas table is usually a mustard coated ham, here is a one that is not made from a pig's butt but from the beloved soybean.
My grandmother, Inger, and a plant that was blooming on my relatives balcony.
Me and the hostess of the party at christmas eve, Carina and me during a game where everyone got to wear a mustache.
My sister, Isabella.
My mother always decorate the christmas tree with the most adorable ornaments. How about a cat with a bunch of books on the back?
Christmassy breakfast, rice pudding with sugar and cinnamon.
We went for dinner at my grandparents on Boxing Day and she made me the most wonderful lasagna with creamed spinach. I even got to take home the leftovers and ate them for lunch the day after.
The boys of the family. And man.
Sick of christmas food, we cooked up some other dinners the following days. On the left is a salad with string beans, sunflower sprouts, bell pepper and a dressing made with coconut, ginger and chili. On the right is deep fried artichoke hearts that were later dipped in a mango sauce. Out of this world.
The food loot I brought home. Loads of different hot sauces, sweets and fun stuff. Two tiny pans - perfect for pancakes.
I also got some stuff from Lush. Vanillary perfume, You Snap the Whip body butter, Candy Cane soap and Northern Lights soap.
