Midsommarfest 2011

(more about Midsommar and last year's Midsommarfest here)

The day dawned dark and dreary.  Oh well.  Sometimes it isn't so sunny in Sweden, either.


But I set the tables up with the help of one of my lovely undergrads here for the summer and her friends from work and got to making food. 

Seating for 34 people.  I love dinner parties.

Bacon-wrapped apricots.  Delicious.

 In line for food:  Swedish meatballs, cucumber and dill salad, potato salad, cheese flan, smoked fish, cheese, bread, beet salad, all manner of other good things.

...and a bonus? The sun came out!

So many people! 

Me and my first taste of aquavit - delicious!  It also tastes rather delightful with lingonberry saft and water.  

All smiles.  What a great night.
