Swedish meatballs are a classic dish that is so easy to make at home – no allen wrench required!
Last week we headed out to dinner and then walked two doors down to watch a holiday light show. It was crowded, cold, and drizzly, but I loved every second of the show because it was something we were doing as a family for the holidays. We may not be the “best” at celebrating Christmas or other holidays, but I love the things we do, because they just celebrate the wonder of it all. Of course, now my older son is obsessed with decorating the outside of our house in a million lights, so that might have backfired a bit, but we can always plan for next year.
I consider every year to be a new chance to create traditions. Although the gifts are pretty great (and I absolutely love giving gifts) I want to be able to have my kids look back on these years and think of all the fun stuff we did, not the presents they did or didn’t get. That’s part of the reason I’ve been sharing my julbord recipes with you this year, to embrace the traditions of my heritage.
