I lived in Seattle for many years, but never went to the Nordic Heritage Museum. Infact, I didn't even know it existed until we stopped by some long time friends and they mentioned a special exhibit that was taking place at the museum. So when my friend was taking her daughter to art lessons, I headed off to the museum. I never realized that Seattle had big Scandanavian population. It was fun to learn how the community influenced the developement of Seattle. It was also fun to see all the Marimekko fabrics which were on exhibit but are no longer showing.
In order to wrap up these Seattle post, I am going to combine my lunch with my friend Jenna. She lives in Kirkland which is just over the bridge on the other side of Lake Washington. I had lunch with her before going to the museum. One of my favorite things about Seattle are all the fresh farm to table restaurants and organic restaurants. The food is just amazing. I had a totally yummy salad followed by a yummy apple salted caramel handpie. Jenna got a batch of their fresh root vegetable chips with garlic aioli and oh my so yummy! Thanks Jenna for taking me to Little Brothers and Deru. The only thing I wish was that I would have had time to go back and try out a few more items from their menu's. Well, this wraps up my Seattle post! Can't believe we will be in Germany in less than a week. I am excited for all the new adventures that we are going to have while we are over there this next year.
