But today, as I started making the two Finnish vegetable dishes Lanttulaatikko and Porkkanalaatikko (swede and carrot bakes) for Christmas Eve, the scent of rice pudding and swede being boiled, together with grated nutmeg which is used to season the dishes, made me feel completely Christmassy.

|You need nimble fingers to deal with the gingerbread biscuit dough.|
|The finished biscuits taste delicious.|
|The tree has a white and silver theme this year.|
Hope you too are getting that Christmas feeling!
