Howdy

Greetings all! I am currently stationed on the Frozen (Recently Thawed) Tundra of Eastern North Dakota. I am always on the hunt for different recipes to change what we eat. I grew up in Southern Minnesota, my mom is an excellent baker, but not a very good cook. I grew up in the typical way of Minnesotans where ketchup was considered the staple condiment and was "spicy". After escaping the Peoples Republic of Minnesota and I discovered different flavors beyond stale black pepper and ketchup. Hopefully I'll learn a lot! Oly

Welcome to DC!
Well I discovered different flavors in the last 20 years after escaping the PRM. I have lived in South Dakota, two places in Wyoming, Idaho, Kansas and this is my second place in North Dakota. The closest I have lived to the PRM is Fargo when I Recruited down there. Hopefully, my quest for orders to Minot works out this summer. I might actually reach my Nordic roots and try some lutefisk if I move to Minot!

Go to the Hostefest, they have LOTS of lutefisk there! I could only eat it with LOTS of dry mustard and melted butter. More of a ritual than actual food enjoyment. I prefer the lefse... and krumkakke, and rosettes, and sanbakkles... I've maintained the tradition of Swedish meatballs on Christmas Eve, though.
