    ... decided on a menu, Pork Loin in a mushroom cream sauce, Chanterelle Mushroom Risotto, and a mixed green salad, we spent the early afternoon shopping for our ingredients. Returning with our bounty, we set about prepping everything. It was going to be a dinner for 12-13, so we went about our tasks with a purpose, aided by an odd glass or two or three of a South African blend of Sauvignon Blanc and C******nay.

    ... a few minutes setting in the small park at the base of the old town’s fortifications soaking up the quiet beauty of this nice setting. We then walked up the cobblestone road, pausing to look over the memorial to the 1741 battle, and then through the earthen fortifications and into the old town which consisted of old military buildings, both wood and brick, and quite a few old buildings that had be converted to modern usage, including the South ...

    ... Church in Lappeenranta at Christmas-time later that same year. For the next 19 years, a pilgrimage to the farm was at least a yearly event regardless of where we may have been living at the time.
