Scandinavian lutefisk and meatballs dinner

Published on Mon, Oct 15, 2012 (11:19 a.m.)


It’s time for the annual Scandinavian Celebration! The Sons of Norway Desert Troll Lodge will have their traditional Lutefisk and Meatballs Dinner on Saturday November 3rd.

The event begins at 4:00 with dinner being served at 5:00. In addition to Lutefisk and Scandinavian meatballs, they will be serving pork roast, potatoes, vegetables and Lefse, the traditional Scandinavian potato flatbread. Dessert will include homemade Norwegian cookies. Of course a Norwegian celebration would not be complete without Aquavit: the traditional liquor of Norway will be available at the bar.

Never heard of Lutefisk? Perhaps you’re not of Scandinavian descent. This traditional preparation of codfish is a hereditary delicacy in Scandinavian countries as well as in Minnesota and Canada, where there are large populations of Scandinavian descendants. The origins of this recipe have been traced back to the 1500s, and some think it goes back to the Vikings. Consumption and discussion of this dish remain popular among Norwegians everywhere.

The event takes place on Saturday, November 3rd, from 4:00 - 7:00 PM. at the Elks Lodge, 1217 Nevada Highway in Boulder City. Ticket prices are $20 for adults and $5 for youth (5-12 yrs). There will be raffle prizes, door prizes and gifts for the children. The event sold out last year, so get your tickets early.

Everyone is welcome! For tickets call Bob at 338-4918 or Vikki at 617-8898.
