Christmas came early this year
Or at least, we had christmas food early. Really early. Actually, last night. We just had such a hankering for it and I'm a firm believer in indulging. So, why not?
In this picture, you see a lot of traditional Swedish christmas food. (And some maybe not so traditional.) Many families eat a lot more stuff than this, but this is really all we need to have for a proper christmas. (And personally, I don't eat the herring, either.)
Back row, left to right:
-halved hardboiled eggs with mayonnaise, shrimp and black caviar
-christmas ham-boiled potatoes
-Liver paté (this one is seasoned with glogg-spices, like allspice - it was really quite tasty)
-Finnish Swede Bake
-gravlax (cured salmon)
-meatballs and tiny sausages
-Christmas orange salad
-some condiments (two types of mustard and a dill-mustard sauce for the salmon) and two types of herring, one with mustard and one with dill.
