Sister of the bride

Today´s Swedish word: brud. Means bride.
Did you miss me? I have missed myself too! For a couple of weeks my whole mind (almost, I had to spare some space for my exam in law) has been occupied with this gorgeous girl, my dearest sister Helena, and her wedding.
Our flat is a mess, I have barely cooked anything in weeks and the intray is out of control but what does it matter when you get to share such a magic day with all your family and relatives? We also got to tie two families together in more than one way. Not only did these two marry each other but we all got to know each other while preparing for the party. We worked all night on Friday laying tables, making flower arrangements and I prepared small sandwiches with creme fraiche, sundried tomatoes and basil. I also (beforehand!) made the wonderful biscotti with ginger, almonds and pink peppercorns from the passionate cook. A great success with the bubbly and strawberries when the bride and groom had arrived - her riding a large black horse and him walking by her side...
We celebrated all night, eating and dancing and singing, and the next day we had a do in my parents´garden with lunch and coffee with leftover wedding cake. Now I am a bit tired but it will be back to normal in a few days I guess. And our flat will be clean and proper again and we will plan our vacation and I will fill in all the boring forms for my part-time unemplyment. It will all feel better to do all this when I have nice memories like this wedding to think of!
And I will cook again, and blog - about sweets from Germany and LA, veggies, rhubarb and loads of other stuff. And in a month we will head off for another wedding!
P.S. Of course we had cheesecake for dessert! D.S.

Var det du som hade gjort skorporna. Fattade aldrig det, men borde nästan kunnat räkna ut det. Hur som helst var de mycket goda.

Judging from the photos, you two look very much alike. Congrats to your sister! And those pink peppercorn, almond & ginger cantucci from Johanna are gorgeous - I've made them, too..

Send me a few photos when you have the time. I haven't seen your mother and aunts in over 35 years.

Oh, lovely! Congratulations to your sister, and Pille is right, you really do look very much alike :)

Thank you all and I will pass the congratulations on to the adorable couple. We didn´t get too much good photos so I will wait for other people´s and then maybe post some more.
