Hyvää ruokahalua! Bon appetite!

Moikka!

 

Our second meeting was on 22nd of October at my place where me and Jocelyn made some traditional Finnish food. We made macaroni casserole ’makaroonilaatikko’ for dinner and blueberry pie ’mustikkapiirakka’ for dessert. It was actually the first time that I made macaroni casserole but it turned out to be very easy to make. There aren’t many spices in traditional Finnish foods except for salt and pepper and those were also the only spices in macaroni casserole.
