O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk

It is that time of the year again when that lovely lye smell radiates from church kitchens, with a variety of other yummy smells. Frolicking through the internet the other day and found out this "Lutefisk Dinner Calendar". This just includes churches, but good Scandanavians know there are restaurants that serve it as well.

These are the dates given. Please utilize your internet skills or lutefisk contacts to verify information given, as times, dates, etc. can change from year to year.

Prices also vary, from $13-$17, plus what is served aside from Lutefisk.
