I’m back!!

Dagmar in Kyoto
The evening before yesterday we came back to Sweden after our incredible honeymoon in Japan. I can’t describe in words how amazing the trip was; we have so many experiences and memories of our wonderful honeymoon including an average of 200 photos per day. Japan is a beautiful and amazing country, even though it’s almost suicide to go there in August when it’s incredibly hot :-) My arthritis got worse and my knees almost killed me, but we kept a slow pace and managed to see quite a lot. We have eaten the most fantastic meals, most of them delicous but some of them inedible as they were just too much for us Swedes :-) I will post a lot about Japan in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for Japanese food and restaurants.

And our wedding? The wedding, on August 12th in Gothenburg, was just perfect and beautiful even if I’m quite partial :-) We were both so happy and we smiled like maniacs all day. It was the final weekend of the European Championships in track and field, so we were quite stressed as the women’s marathon started at the same time as our wedding and they roped off all central Gothenburg from traffic. My dear mother-in-law did a fantastic job during the weeks before the wedding and managed to get us all necessary permits and also managed to arrange a police escort for us and our guests so we wouldn’t get stuck in any traffic jam. We had an unique and great wedding and I will write a separate post about it when I get all of the photos.

    Hello Dagmar! Congratulations on your wedding! Much joy and happiness to you both today and in the years to come. I am sure that a home with such a wonderful hearth and table of plenty will always be one of celebration and love. I came across your blog as I searched the internet for a specific Polish Wigilia recipe. I inherited the Christmas Eve traditions from my great-grandparents and grandparents who came to the USA in the late 1800s/early 1900s (from Poland although at the time they were coming from Russia, Prussia, and Austria). Each side of the family had very specific Wigilia traditions and I have taken what I think are the best from each of them for my Wigilia menu. I was hoping to find a recipe for one paricular Wigilia dish my paternal grandmother spoke of her mother making: raisins and rice. I seems to be a sweet dish but I find either kutia or zupa migdalowa (almond soup) as the 2 closest recipes to her description. Have you ever heard of it? I am hoping to “return” this dish to my family’s Christmas Eve. Any suggestions? Dziekuje!

    Hi Ron,
    Thank you so much!
    What a fantastic thing to do Ron! But I’m sorry to say that I don’t recognize the receipe that you’re searching for. But I will ask my mother, maybe she knows. I’ll let you know as soon as I speak with her.
