'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America
Independent voices from the TWT Communities
Dozens of Minnesota Scandinavians and the people who love them flock to the VFW Club in Litchfield every Thursday from November through January, where $20 will get you a big steaming hunk of the frequently mocked fish dish known as lutefisk. It comes with meatballs, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and the potato flatbread known as lefse — all of which helps to make up for the dubious entree.
Mr. Dorff said his lutefisk sales drop about 5 percent every year, but he has no plans to stop making it.
"Yeah, I do," Mr. Dorff said. "It's just one of those things. I'd prefer a piece of halibut or some crab legs. But I like it. It's got butter on it. Butter is good."
