A very special Dinner - dedicated Captain Lifecruiser

What a great evening with Friends
You know, not everything from a Dinner may be posted.
But I tell you:

We started with fresh Strawberries and a Riesling from Alsace and Sparkling Water, in our Kitchen. As you see, our selected guests left some berries to Anna and me;)) That's what's friends are for. Right?

Then we went to the Living Room.

Roar (That's a masculin name not a sound from a wild preditator)
my old pal from School back in the early 60'ies, is a master in opening Champagne.
Justh look at his unique way of opening a Dom Perignon. Not at single drop spilled.
And opened soundless. Only Masters can do that.

Ready for the course?
Ok, here we go:
First of all you need to have a "Dom" in your home.
Secondly, you need an expert to open the bottle correctly.
As you allready know, we had both the expert , the Dom and a Towel

Mission completed

Below is the Table with the Dom:

As a starter with the Champagne, which in fact was a gift from Mrs and Mr Lifecruiser to Anna's 3x20 Event in September last year, we served Gravlax with a mustard sauce, special made for this fish, and home baked bread with real Butter.

Main Dish was Venison. The very best. Carree de Venison.

And Anna knows how to serve it perfectly.

With Green Beans from our Summer Garden and "Hasselback"- potatoes ( a wondeful Swedish creation you must try), Game Sauce and fresh mashed Partridgeberries (tyttebær).

From here on, papa had to admit: I joined the meal and the conversation, and forgot you my dear blogger friend. I did not take any more Photos. But I'll reveal the rest of our meal - in words.

Then we had Cheeze. One French Camembert (10 hours in Room temperature) and one Blue, a Norwegian Selbu, that is top World Class. Only available locally and a few other stores.

Dessert? As usual Rasberries from our Summer Garden and genuine Vanilla Ice Cream. And Eclairs.

We ended up with Espresso and very "dark" chocolade. Even a taste of Calvados.

when our distinguished Guest had left:
This is how the Table looked like:

But, but what about the Cats?

Did they have a great time as well - served fav dishes

Miieow - Felicia in one of the Kitchen Windows

Mieaaw - Rosa in the Bedroom Window
And here the Day after:

Anna Sunday Morning.

But, where is papa?
Behind the Camera. Where else?

What we talked about for about 7 houres?
You will only know, if seated for a Dinner with us. Is that too much to demand?

PS. I'll send you a very special postcard if you can describe my clothings in this written moment;))

Maybe your bathrobe?!!! Sounds and looks good! My meat loaf dinner turned out great too. My husband was hungry after skiing 30 km yesterday and again today!

Truth be known, I don't like dark chocolate...but I love milk choc. because it's so velvety and melts in your mouth. Which is supposed to be better, Swiss or Belgian chocolate?

Wonderful meal, Tor. When I come to Norway in 2010 we must plan an event like this.
I also have the talent of opening a champagne bottle with no fuss or drips! It's a gift from God! (giggles)
I think you may be sitting in your living room with no clothes at all! Relaxing after a long sleep!

I barely made it here but I was to hungry after this starving stomach bug thing to not go to this post and read.....

Looks like a wonderful dinner and time indeed.

I'm very pleased to see that the Dom got appreciated - and with friends too - that's just perfect!

Hugs from the still sick Lifecruisers

What a wonderful dinner and of course always made better with good friends. I like scrolling down to see each being presented. I have thougth about you and your wife's loss of your son especially during the holiday season. I can only imagine how difficult it was for you. thank goodness you still have other family to share your your joy and sadness as well. I found the cemetery photos touching as well. My thought s go with you. Not to end on a glum note, but just wanted to share that with you.
