We're spending Christmas with the ILs, so the menu will be either raclette or meaty fondue, with lots of yummy things.
But, we're doing a traditional Finnish Christmas Dinner in my house this Saturday. I've been cooking and baking up a storm. So har we have:
As little nibbles as the guests arrive we'll have
Thin crispy rye bread with cold smoked reindeer
Spicy Christmas bread with ricotta and caramellized onions
And glögg to drink
Then the actual meal
Salted ham cooked on the barbeque by my husband, mustards
Karelian meat stew
Sweet, Tavastian potato casserole
Karelian rice pastries
Red beet salad
Home made cheese
Lingonberries, other preserves
to drink: milk, butter milk, home made "beer", berry juice
Coffee and gingerbread cookies. Possibly plum tarts.
The mixture of foods is what we'd have at home, with my family, or if cooking just for us here.
