The Skandi Kitchen cookbook has been on display on the front counter of the book store for a few weeks. One of my sterling coworkers keeps opening the book to the Swedish meatball page. Don't these look good?, he says. OMG stop it! 

He's a great book seller. Of course I eventually bought the book. I am pleased to say it does NOT mention lutefisk. One of those cultural things you definitely DO NOT want to try. Or maybe you do. You have my permission to appropriate it, just keep it away from me. 

On the other hand, these meatballs are absolutely delicious.


I think the allspice and grated onion give them the special flavor. I never had anything as tasty from my scandinavian family. 

I made twice as much gravy.

I have been veg since I was 16, but before then my mom made these which I also enjoyed :)

Those look so good!
My husband's Scandinavian relatives are welcome to keep their lutefisk to themselves, but I do like to eat lefse. (But then again, who doesn't like to eat lefse?)

I've been looking at this cookbook too! Too bad we don't live closer. We could help enable each other's cookbook addictions!
