Salmon Served With Caviar Sauce

Tomorrow, the 17th of May, it is public holiday (Ascension Day) in Sweden.

Tomorrow Norway celebrates its Constitution. Norwegians certainly know how to celebrate their National Day!

Hurray for Sweden’s neighbour-country and all the people of Norway on their National Day on the 17th of May!

A special warm greeting to my Norwegian friends!
