Members brought their favorite Norwegian-style soup (pea, fruktsuppe, etc.) or a side dish/dessert to share.
There was no formal program for the January meeting, but we presented the results of the Norwegian Festival & Bazaar, had good Norwegian fellowship, and discussed plans for the lodge in 2014 (i.e., IRS reinstatement, 200th anniversary of Norway’s constitution, Syttende Mai, etc.)
Pea soup or is soup made typically from dried peas, such as the split pea. It is greyish-green or yellow in color depending on the regional variety of peas used.
Pea soup has been eaten since antiquity. Now it is, with variations, a part of the cuisine of many cultures.
Scandinavian pea soup normally includes pieces of pork, and a typical recipe would also include some onion and herbs such as thyme and marjoram.
