March is upon us. But let's catch up a bit. Let us take you back to the time of yestermonth, a land of magic and wonder...
Well, here's a few highlights, anyway:
Over the weekend of President's Day, we celebrated Swedish things. We made Swedish meatballs and kladdkaka (like a Swedish brownie of sorts) with Swedish measuring cups on Sunday, and on Monday we had Swedish pancakes prior to our visit to IKEA, where we picked up a new bookshelf (at last we have room for all of our books...for now). We also ate lunch there (for free), but I suppose it wasn't truly Swedish food...we were really hoping for the chocolate cake there, too, but they were out. If we continue this tradition of Swedishness, we have far more we could do (feel free to give ideas as well), but this was a last minute idea, and we had fun nonetheless. Oh, and thanks goes to our wonderful cousin Sarah for providing the authentically Swedish recipes almost a year ago. They will be posted at the Bradshaw Bistro in the near future, alongside the Chocolate Truffles recipe posted today...

I guess one more thing. BYU's basketball team has done wonderfully this season, in large part due to the remarkable effort of one Jimmer Fredette, and it's nice to be part of a school that gains the national spotlight for positive things. While we aren't avid sports fans, Jimmermania is inescapable. Even the local Walmarts gave him a nod:
