Today the Republic of Estonia celebrates its 103rd birthday. On this day we honour the brave men who fought for Estonia's independence. One of those men was my grandfather's uncle Paul Lesthal. He was a machine gunner in the armoured train division. The armoured trains were the backbone of the war effort. Happy Independence Day everyone! Head EV103 iseseisvuspäevä!

I am very proud that my cousin Andrei Nazarov received a state decoration today on the eve of Estonia's Independence Day. Andrei was awarded The Order of the White Star, 4th Class from President Kaljulaid. Congratulations!

It's Sunday, the day of the week I spend longest in the kitchen. It's always nice to cook Estonian dishes and I haven't made this one in a while. Potato salad with red beet is a traditional Estonian dish. It's good to eat with either lunch or dinner.
