Midsummer last year we were in Abruzzo looking at properties. The midsummer before that we were in Rome for our honeymoon. And this midsummer we were in our new house!
As you can tell, we are not all that worried about Swedish traditions. But who says you can’t make new ones! So we figured, why not take the opportunity and have a Swedish-Italian Midsummer Aperitivo!
Of course, we don’t know that many people in Italy yet, and several of those we do know couldn’t make it over, due to the crazy (yet accurate) midsummer weather.
At least we managed to gather a few people and introduce them to both Snaps and mustard herring. One guest also enjoyed the crisp bread so much I was happy I had brought an extra packet – to give to her to bring home.
Who knows, maybe next year we’ll be twice as many!
