Recovering from last night’s glögg party, which involved drinking mulled wine and eating Swedish meatballs and beet salad until four in the morning, took some effort. Somehow, I managed to get up at nine and write about the previous day’s festivities, emerge from my desk, then find GirlfriendBites with our friends Dave and O’Ryan sitting on the couch with food delivered. Thanks to them, I now know that wonton soup and Thai iced tea are great things to have following a gathering of that magnitude. But it’s another day, which means another cuisine, and today that means leaving GFB and O’Ryan alone to clean the apartment (thank you O’Ryan and GFB) while MamaBites and I drive down to San Diego for December Nights in Balboa Park. I’m not totally sure what that is, but I’ve been assured that there is Finnish food available. Good enough for me.
