Salacgriva / Moms birthday party

We were in Salcgriva yesterday for my moms birthday party. She celebrated her 64th birthday and had dinner at home. Just all together: me & my family, brother with his and my mom. She doesn’t like to celebrate or make parties.

We had my favorite kotletes (meatballs!? She knows how to make delicious, juicy meatballs for sure) for dinner with potatoes, gravy, and sauerkraut. Yummy! We didn’t have “full of sugar” birthday cake instead mom baked apple upside down cake and served it with whipped cream.

We had a walk to the sea (Gulf of Riga) and that’s it. Said goodbye and drive 185km back home 🙂


P.S. Nelle and Linna chose her outfit…. Helmī is my style 🙂 velour shorts with a t-shirt.

  1. Sounds a perfect birthday dinner. The ‘meatballs’ sound/look a bit like the German frikadellen though those are usually fried in a pan wheras your mum’s seem to be done in the oven. All the others I know are cooked in some kind of broth/liquid. Do you have a recipe.
    Great pictures. I’d seen before you had been using a MkIII Canon 5D. That’s quite a camera. I had a Mk1 but even that I didn’t like the bulk so changed to mirrorless.

    1. Oh, Mom made them in previous day in pan and then in the “right” day, put in the oven to heat up! German frikadellen might be the right name ;). Also about camera. I had to save money for 4 years and after that I still doubted I need / deserve it… that money can be spent better way. BUT I have wonderfull brother, who told me, that I saved it every month… I didn’t buy something else, made cheaper meals just to get THAT camera, I have to by it… so I did! I cried when I hold in my hand for the first time! Now I’m thinking going back to photography…. (beside kitchen making) 🙂
