I will try new foods, too, usually. The ones I listed are ones I have tried and don't like. Except the insects. I have no desire to try insects.

Last New Year's Eve, we went to some friends' house and shared appetizers. I thought I didn't like pate-type pulverized chicken, but she served a curried chicken pate and I really liked it.

Lutefisk is also tasteless except for the drawn butter. Ever notice how Norsk food tends toward white and bland? Although I love Norsk baked goods: jule kake, sandbakkel, lefsa, rosettes, etc. I make all of it for the holidays. And smoked chubs are wonderful, but I hate pulling off the heads. I don't like food looking at me!

It is called "snow blindness." The goods you mentioned are traditional Christmas baked goods that our grandmothers made (and, by tradition, we still make). Lefse was a way to use up the leftover mashed potatoes.

Modern Scandinavian cooking is not at all like my grandma's cooking. Check out:

I can think of several not-bland, tasty, traditional dishes: frikadeller, rødkål (red cabbage), Danish meatloaf, rullepølse, smoked or gravad salmon and trout, leverpostej (Danish liver pate), smoked herring (not kippers ), cod liver pate, Danish smørrebrød (open faced sandwiches), ...

I can think of several non-white, not-bland dishes as well--Biff à la Lindström always showed up at the ASI potlucks I attended (http://www.sweden.se/eng/Home/Lifest...-la-Lindstrom/)

Thank you for reminding me about this dish. I'll probably make it tomorrow.

Stirling reminded me that we have a jar of Polish pickled beet salad. I'll use that in the bøf Lundstrøm (Danish spelling). That will simplify making it and I'm lazy and out of pickled beets.

Don't think of it as being lazy, you are just saving your energy for more difficult chores that require vast amounts of effort.
