First time in my life I'm not going to spend Christmas in the Czech Republic. No unhealthy (but damn good) christmas cookies from my beloved granny. No carp but salmon as a main meal, no big family dinner but a tranquil and romantic evening with my love, no czech fairytales but watching american classics on Netflix. And to be honest, I'm glad that once I can shy away from these old traditions and try something new on the other side of the world. However, sometimes I miss the sweet smell of fatty cookies full of gluten. So I made some healthier kinds of treats and tomorrow we're going to make a potato salad to placate our homesick feelings.
