    Oh and Mick, I think it is generally assumed that we will be off topic. As it is October the first and also a Tuesday I will have to to a first Tuesday shave club post a bit later. After my ironing.

    Personally, I love both fårikål and lutefisk.

    My father's family all came from Norway in the late 19th century and settled in South Dakota, near Hilmoe. They were farmers looking for what they apparently couldn't find in Norway: land. They sure found it in S. Dakota. I'm not even sure Hilmoe still exists, although Presho does. Anyway we all eat lutefisk, some with more enthusiasm than others. Personally I like it a lot and usually wind up cooking it at the church's Christmas smorgasbord. Real ethnic food, the young volk and those of German extraction mostly avoid it like the plague. Which just leaves those of us with some Norske connection eating it. Regretfully the contingent of Norwegians is rapidly diminishing, so I have little doubt that this Christmas tradition of lutefisk dinner has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. More's the pity. What will go next lefse?
