Happy laskiainen

That is, happy Shrove Tuesday! I know in some countries this is called the pancake day, but not here in Finland. In Finland it’s a day where you are supposed to go sledging and eat green pea soup.

I don’t even own a sledge, so I just went to ballet class. But I did make green pea soup.

The basic recipe is just peas and water and salt, but you can also add meat (ham is traditional, but I don’t like ham), carrots, onion and spices. The most important part however is after you put it on a plate - add a lot of mustard.
