Eat Lightly Before the Lutefisk Banquet

“Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?”

(Matthew 7:10)

It is obvious that fish is a wonderful food; it is truly good to eat.  And lutefisk is a wonderful preparation of codfish!   (So eat a light lunch, to save room for a lot of lutefisk, if you are attending an all-you-can-eat lutefisk supper!)

EAT  LIGHTLY  BEFORE  THE  LUTEFISK  BANQUET 

(by  Dr. James J. S. Johnson)

Chocolate pie, for lunch, a snack brisk;

Also, for me, tomato bisque;

   But the dining highlight,

   that we had, that night:

Was all-you-can-eat lutefisk!

Lutefisk  Supper  Road-sign       (Cranfills  Gap,  Texas)

When it’s time, in Norway, for Jule
One dish “stands” alone, the crown jewel;
‘Tis cod, soaked in lye
Washed, boiled — don’t be shy!
Lutefisk! (How it makes my mouth drool!)
