Bilfalde Venner

Welcome friends!

This past weekend we got together with Dave and Kathyrn to roughly plan our sightseeing in Copenhagen(scheduled for later this summer). In keeping with the Danish theme, I planned a Danish dinner.

The official flower of Denmark is the marguerite daisy but there were none to be found at the market this past weekend. I did find some flowers similar in look to the daisy and created this table arrangement:

And here's the menu:

Of course we also had Carlsberg beer and with no Danish wines or liquor to be found I served the next best thing, Swedish Orange, very yummy and so easy:

1 1/2 cups Svedka Clementine Vodka
4 cups white cranberry juice
5 clementines, peeled and chopped

Combine these three ingredients in a pitcher, refrigerate. Serve in highball glasses over ice.

The slaw and meatballs were great but I think the favourite was the dessert. Here's the link to the slaw and meatballs recipes, I'll feature the dessert in another post.

Danish Apple Slaw

Danish Meatballs with Creamy Dill Sauce
