|Dear Adrianne —
Happy New Year 2018!
The midterm elections 2018 are our first major opportunity to hold the Republican Party accountable.
They have been letting Trump get away with his attacks on the democratic institutions so important to everything we hold dear about the United States, while also destabilizing the world, making inequality worse, and endangering the future of our planet as we know it.
This is when the rubber hits the road.
To vote together with millions of Americans at home and overseas, you need to request an absentee ballot every election year, even if you voted absentee in the last election. Now is the time.
Go to www.votefromabroad.org to register to vote and request your absentee ballot now for you and your family living in Sweden.
Don’t forget to remind your American friends living abroad to request their ballot too.
The website provides an easy-to-use tool to help you register to vote and request your absentee ballot, and also answers many of the most common questions, and there is a voter help desk for support.
Let’s take back Congress together in 2018!
Chair, DA Sweden
From my Goddaughter in Berlin.
A colleague in the States wished me a Happy Thanksgiving and then added, “Thanksgiving must be different in Sweden”. And it is. But then again it isn’t.
I like to think I am known among my Swedish family for my “turkey dinners”. Though the grandkids love my mother-in-love’s turkey, as they should.
The part of Thanksgiving that is the same in Sweden for me is that thankful component. One of the MANY things for which I am grateful this year is our successful and safe move back to Sweden. And that includes being thankful for the American Women’s Club. No one else in Stockholm knows how to pull together such a diverse bunch of American women for Thanksgiving like the Club does.
The lunch brings in our newest members along with our lifetime members who have been in Stockholm since the 70’s. It’s a great excuse to take a long lunch and to invite friends who are not members of the club. And Kitchen & Table were so thankful for us being there that they gave us wonderful goodies bags with special offers and a special seasoning.
Nice things happen to me in Sweden.
Zeta Tomater – Zeta tomatoes
I used my second #buzzador can of Zeta tomatoes for a chicken pasta bake. This time I used the fine crushed version. Jag använde min andra #buzzador kan av Zeta-tomater för en kycklingpasta bake. Den här gången använde jag den fina krossade versionen.
I roasted chicken breasts and added them to a cream sauce with bacon and rosemary. I added cooked bowtie pasta and a can of Zeta tomatoes. I poured it in a casserole and sprinkled a bit of panko and parmesan on top. Jag rostade kycklingbröst och lade dem till en krämsås med bacon och rosmarin. Jag lade till kokt bowtie pasta och en burk Zeta-tomater. Jag hällde den i en gryta och sprinklade lite panko och parmesan på toppen.
