Sweden

Posted on Jan 26, 2016 by in LEARN | 1 comment

Excited to study Sweden!  Hubby’s ancestors were from Sweden predominately – so we’re eager to learn more about this country. He grew up with certain foods (like Pepperkakor) that I attempted making this year at Christmas.  Sweden is much more than IKEA… and the beloved meatballs with lingonberry sauce….. 😉 … and MINECRAFT.
