Finnish main course [I meant to take a picture of mine, but forgot in the confusion of getting everything on the table]) served with lingonberries and sour cream. We'd picked up the fixings for the hors d'oeuvres at Ikea the evening before, and guests were bringing the salad and dessert, so I didn't have too much preparation. The Jansson's temptation (my recipe is a little different and includes anchovies in place of the sprats) was wonderful as always, and I steamed some fresh asparagus. Left-overs tonight!
So, anyway, I was trying to write about a rainy Sunday and got Swedishly sidetracked. With everything cleaned up from last night and my meatloaf for tomorrow night (a group is cooking for the hungry) finished, I really don't feel guilty going down to the studio to sew for much of the afternoon. I'm planning to get Kathy B's Posies all together and they lay out the coffee-with-cream-churn-dash blocks that she sent for yet another mercy quilt. It sounds like a fine afternoon, and I don't have to worry about that rainy Sunday afternoon temptation to take a nap -- I already gave it for a half-hour when we got home from church!
