Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, Bill, Jamie & the kids came out to the farm and Dad cooked us up some lutefisk!
Lutefisk is dried fish that has been brined in lye, soaked and then steamed until it flakes. Legend has it that the Irish were trying to poison the Vikings by feeding them spoiled fish, but they liked it!
I've gone many holiday's avoiding it at all cost, but I thought if Joey was brave enough to eat it, I could be too! It wasn't as bad as I was expecting - imagine fish jello...Ewww, don't imagine that, but that's what it tastes like.
After supper, we had a (another) major fail at the chocolate fountain (although pretty delicious), played a few rounds of the Scooby Doo jenga game, and Joey learned Heart & Soul. He's such a little musical sponge...and of course Billy entertained us with some accordion tunes!

  1. Rumor has it... Lutefisk puts hair on your chest. Don't imagine that either. HA!
