cheese platter for b-day party!

I had 26th birthday party last thursday evening! I’ve thinking to have private quality party so decide to do cheese platter evening! I haven’t done it before but I’m cheese lover so.

First question came to me was which cheese I need to buy it? So I’ve been searching online days and days, found good advice from ‘A cup of Jo’ blog. I’m flowing her blog and she has so many things to learn from. Cheese plate guide from her.

So I decided to buy each cheese from different milk, but when I went to shop it was really hard to find each one from different milk. First I’m not fluent in Swedish and it wasn’t categorized by milk. I stood at cheese cornet at ICA MAXI(Big supermarket here in Sweden) about 20 minutes, realized I brought paper that wrote down names of cheese from Cheese plate guide.

So I bought Castello Blue Cheese (Denmark)/ Høng Camembert (France)/ Grayère Reserva (Switzerland)/ Les Petit Fiance (France.Goat cheese)/ Manchego (Spain)/ Västerbatten Ost (Sweden)/Cambozola (French/Italy)

Then prepare cheese an hour before so it would be good if its room temperature you will enjoy best flavor out of cheese. And prepared biscuits and baguette (French bread would be good) and pear, grape is best combination with cheese. Also prepare cranberry source or cranberry marmalade. And I put out some olives as well.

Then enjoy party with either Champaign or Wine, and Henry Mancini – Breakfast At Tiffany’s Original Soundtrackgreat fellowship with dear ones.


sneak peek: sunday

I love those Russian dolls! It’s one of my flat mates’ I wish to travel Russia and get one of those. Also I’m considering to get blank russian dolls so make my the only one russian dolls! And since being a paparazzi 2weeks ago on conference the held where I stay, I started to take lots photos again which give me a lot of inspiration to do creative work.

My mother sent some food from Tanzania, Africa. My parents moved to Tazania last summer now they are learning language and started to settle down. Mother dried Mango and Banana at home, made dried porridge and sent all of it with 2 cans of coffee, cashew nut (It’s totally amazing although I can buy here in Sweden too but it’s much more good taste!)

I love this dried tulips! one of my roommates got tulips 3weeks ago from her church and after some time it started to dying. So I cut flowers and dried them in container on heating radiator. So I quite kept shape of it and color! I love when flower dries color get little darker, it pleases me so much.

And I have tulip plant from last year I dried them totally through out the year after it died, and this year it started to grow again! It’s first time for me to keep plant over a year so I’m very excited to have tulips from my old tulip plant. Do you have any plant?
