It’s December and I have made a practice run of Finnish style rice pudding, which we also call Christmas porridge. The porridge is traditionally eaten with sugar and cinnamon and there is usually also a hidden almond. Whoever gets the almond on Christmas eve, can make a wish. This time I didn’t put an almond in. I cooked the rice in oat milk, so this is also a vegan version.
Are you getting prepared for Christmas? How will your Christmas be different this year? Are you anxious, happy or something else? I would like to hear a little bit about your feelings when we are going towards the festive season. For me Christmas this year will be very different. I have always spent Christmas at home in Finland, but this year I won’t be able to travel, so my partner and I will spend Christmas in Copenhagen. It will be just the two of us and no doubt it will be quite quiet and calm apart from a few video calls to family members. I will try to bring my Finnish Christmas traditions here as much as I can and we will make the best of it.
Have a nice weekend!
