you'd think in a country that get loads of white snow they might think about a caprese salad now and again, but nope. ole and sven ain't going for it.
That is called snow-blindness--white sauce on everything. Don't you read/listen to Lake Woebegone? Have you not gone to a Lutheran Church supper?

Well, let us not forget ketchup, or (be bop, a loo bop) Rhubarb Pie. . .not only sponsors, but tasty additions to any meal. And PRAISE buttermilk biscuits, though they fall into a "beige" meal item.

no, but i've heard of both, lake wobegone and lutheran church suppers.

we are east coast norskies. mostly catholics, but we still have fiskeboller, lutefisk, and blodpolse at family gatherings, and at christmas, julekake.

hey, there you go. blood sausage and reindeer meat aren't white! unless you put a white sauce on them.

Wow, well I just learned that there is a "beige food diet", learn something new everyday. . . so much for my theory.

Don't you guys have sandwiches on heavy rye bread (rugbrød)?

oh man, my maternal uncles used to bring over (what we called) dark and light rye breads from brooklyn on sundays. it was worth hearing the same stories over and over, and being pinched, and squeezed, and teased just for the bread!
