King Harold the Ruthless (He's the one with the arrow in his throat)
Edvard Munch, Norwegian (scary)
Minnesota Vikings, Norwegian inspired (they stink)
Lutefisk. Uff Dah!
Lutefisk (translated: lye-fish) is stockfish (dehydrated white fish, most often cod), reconstituted in saltwater then soaked in lye until the pH is just right. Why? To preserve it of course . . . duh! What else would you use lye for beside laundry, dishes, and major household cleaning? Once the lutefisk is properly saturated, simply boil it up, slap it with butter, and you've got Christmas supper. What do those Viking have against Christmas anyway?
Still, my children are 50% Norwegian. I should make an effort.
