We Hate To Interrupt Your Saturday…

…as you finalize your holiday menu plans (will it be the traditional smalahove this year, or go off-script with lutefisk?) but we would be remiss if we did not let you know that our pal Burr Deming has published his best of the web post complete with wry commentary at Fair and Unbalanced.

You should go see what he’s up to!

We’re keeping this on top, fresher posts —if any!— will be below!

    In the interests of suggesting that some traditional foods were born of necessity and the staving off of starvation – our family (probably 80% of Norse extraction, probably 50% literal immigrants) considered lefse to be a proper traditional holiday food. Also various fancy cookies. With allspice. I have heard that lutefisk regularly features at the holiday feasts at the Sons of Norway lodge in Ballard, but I’ve never been.
    I’ve never in my life been coerced to eat smalahove or lutefisk.

    • Glögg was always a holiday tradition in the ancestral BDR home. Dad’s recipe was dangerous becuase it was a lot higher proof than it seemed to be … I made it once for a holiday party in College and we realized that everyone’s car keys needed to be confiscated about an hour in.

      Also when Grandpa used to visit for Christmas from Chicago he always brought limpa bread. Mmmm…

    I love that. I’ve also seen it working the other way. Food that you might eat without question, is quite questionable to other cultures.

    That was a well-done holiday public affairs piece by the embassy staff. Thanks for sharing.

    Norwegian food. Making Swedish food look good … since however long there’s been Swedes and Norhoovians.
