Sue Maher described our lunch event at the Swedish diner in Chicago. Here are some visuals to accompany her description:
We started out with huge sweet rolls, served atop slices of homemade bread
White sausage, Swedish meatballs, roast duck with lingonberry sauce, pickled cabbage with with caraway
We ate in the upstairs dining room, where the walls were covered with Swedish folk art
(there’s Margaret Doane at the very left hand edge of the picture. Sorry to cut you off, Margaret!)
We also had salad, coffee, strawberries and fudgy brownies. I was too overwhelmed to document the entire event. The staff did a great job getting our group of 55 in and out of the restaurant; we were running late when we arrived and had to make it back to the conference site for a plenary session.
