‘midsummer nights dream’
Arriving back from Italy Mr. N and I came straight to the summer cottage to spend mid summers with my family. This holiday is all about endless nights, where the sun never sets and the nature is at its most beautiful green. The day revolves around good food, swimming in the lake after long saunas and making traditional flower wreaths from wild flowers. The sun shines through the white birch trees, the birds sing intensely throughout the day and the lake glitters where its raining or shining. We made some seasonal vegetable salads, lamb ribs, a strawberry cherry cake that we make every year and started the meal with a fish plate appetizer. Gotta love finnish summer, it’s raw, clean and unpretentious.
