Danish Christmas-Lille julaften

 The Nielson's started a new tradition this year. 
Lille julaften. Or Danish Christmas.  
This year we had dinner on the 23rd 
because of conflicting events on Christmas Eve.
It was still warm, magical, and so memorable.
Our dear friends Wesley and Lyndsay Johnson joined us. 
Wesley was the one who suggested we get together and create this evening.
We ate such delicious authentic Danish food.
Menu below:
Rísalamande (Almond/Rice Porridge with Cherry Sauce on top). 
Frikadelle- {not for the Nielson's though}
Red Cabbage
Sukkerbrunede kartofler - carmelized potatoes 
And Martenelli's- of course.

Mr. Nielson and Wesley did most of the cooking.
The children and I made gingerbread cookies to decorate 
while the adults prepare the dinner.

 This May, Mr. Nielson and I are traveling to Denmark with the Nielson 
family for the Boss and Mary's 50th wedding anniversary.  
I am so excited!
