Happy Anniversary to us!

I had a really lovely weekend. Like, really really lovely. The boyfriend and I celebrated out 3 year anniversary on Saturday with a delicious dinner and lots of hugs and kisses (teehee!) Friday even started our weekend off in the right direction. We went into town and bought lots of yummy food for our special dinner, at Söderhallerna (one of Stockholm's gorgeous indoor food markets.) We adore grocery shopping especially when we get to treat ourselves... we can spend hours in these markets, so much yumminess to look at... and try. We bought 3 types of oysters, smoked Swedish shrimp, and a Pärlhöna (Ginnea Fowl I believe).



Saturday evening couldn't come soon enough, I was just so excited to start slurping up oysters and sipping on crisp white wine, while getting ever so giddy and giggly. I even dolled myself up for our evening at home.

Our first course included...
Swedish oysters (which were ridiculously over priced and not so tasty)
French oysters in two sizes (yummy)
Served with classic red wine shallot vinaigrette or Ponzu with seaweed sallad
Comté cheese
Smoked Swedish shrimp
and a bottle of dry crisp delicious Riesling

Our second course included...
A perfectly roasted ginnea fowl on a bed of mirepoix
Celery root puree and a Chanterelle mushroom au jus reduction sauce
Parsley for decoration
and a bottle of aged red Bourgogne

Dessert included...
A cup of hot tea, a few pieces of chocolate and lots of kisses.









Our Sunday was lovely too, I'll fix another post about that though. 
Hope you had a lovely weekend too!
