Counter-clockwise from 11 o'clock - herring, gravlax, lingonberry sauce, cucumber salad, kottbullar (Swedish meat balls), red beet salad, Julskinka (Swedish style Christmas Ham), prinskorv (Prince's sausage - Swedish cocktail franks), wedges of lax kallrokt (hot smoked salmon, served cold), and a soft roll.  In the center of the plate, another variety of herring and an apple salad; underneath the roll a creamy, dilled Swedish potato salad.

Glogg Alkoholfri - hot, spiced, non-alcoholic 'wine'

Swedish Rice Pudding with almonds

At Ikea, Houston.  There were other offerings on the buffet including hard boiled eggs with mayonnaise and shrimp, gravy for the meat balls, mashed potatoes, Janssen's Temptation (potato casserole), crisp bread and poached salmon with mustard sauce, Swedish cheeses and other desserts, but I didn't take a picture of my second, smaller plate.
