Lunch Rolls with Cheese / Lunch Rundstykker med Ost

Norwegians seldom eat hot lunches, so fresh bread or rolls is important stuff here round that time of the day whether we’ve packed our lunch before leaving home or buy sandwhiches at a bakers or in the cafeteria at work. Special bread or rolls like these are popular here both home baked and bought.

Islander Treat Salad / Karibisk Salattraktering

A salad recipe found in “Swappin’ Good Recipes Feat. Cottage Cheese” published by American Dairy Association in 1970Islander Treat Salad / Karibisk Salattraktering

Unless you were stinking rich I guess this was a salad you might have served rather seldom. Four servings of salad made from 8 freshly cooked lobster tail served with fresh pineapple was not cheap ingredients back in 1970, neither are they today.
But man, it looks absolutely delicious.

Mint Frosted Brownies / Brownies med Peppermynteglasur

A brownie recipe found in “Hershey’s Make It Chocolate!”
published by Hershey in 1987

Mint Frosted Brownies / Brownies med Peppermynteglasur

Mint is I guess something one either love or hate. I have friends who can’t stand it, but for my part I love it in any form. Nothing beat a good book and a steaming cup of mint tea in the evening particulary when combined with a few thin After Eight mint wafers. A couple of these brownies would do nicely too – Ted

A baking recipe found in “Crisco’s Good Cooking  Made Easy Cook Book” published by Procter & Gamble co in 1978Easy Pizza Bread / Enkelt Pizzabrød

I love the title of this recipe, “Easy Pizza Bread”. It makes it sound like we’ve baked this kind of bread since times immemorial and here, finally, is a simple and easy to make it. On the other hand I’ve never heard of pizza bread before now

Gädda i Grädde / Creamy Pike

A simple fish dish found in “God Mat På en Halv Timme”
(Nice Food in Half an Hour) published by Allt Om Mat in 1974

Gdda-I-Grdda_thumb2_thumb

For this dish the golden rule is: The simpler the better. But then for a Swede the combination of pike, cream and tomato puree is unusually obvious.

Pike is copious both in Norwegian, Finish and Swedish lakes and it is a very popular fish both in Sweden and Finland. It is hardly ever eaten here in Norway though. Strange really, though it is rather ugly to look at it is absolutely delicious with its firm white meat – Ted

This doesn’t look much like what goes for pancakes in Scandinavia. On the other hand, they look quite like both “sveler” og “tjukklefse” and both are just as delicious as Scandinavian pancakes – Ted

Cinnamon Coffee Cake / Kaffekake med Kanel

A cake recipe found in “A Sampler of Modern Sour Cream
Recipes” published by American Dairy Association in 1970

Cinnamon Coffee Cake / Kaffekake med Kanel

Cinnamon (/ˈsɪnəmən/ sin-ə-mən) is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used in both sweet and savoury foods. The term “cinnamon” also refers to its mid-brown colour.

Cinnamomum verum is sometimes considered to be “true cinnamon“, but most cinnamon in international commerce is derived from related species, also referred to as “cassia” to distinguish them from “true cinnamon”.

Cinnamon is the name for perhaps a dozen species of trees and the commercial spice products that some of them produce. All are members of the genus Cinnamomum in the family Lauraceae. Only a few Cinnamomum species are grown commercially for spice.

Pies are perfect for bringing to family picnics or other gatherings. Everybody loves them and they are not that hard to make. A mug of custard would not be a miss along with this pie as so many others.

Breaded Chicken Schnitzels / Paneret kyllingeschnitzel

A dinner recipe found in “Bogen om Kyllinger”
(The Book About Chicken) published by Lademann in 1972

Breaded Chicken Schnitzels / Paneret kyllingeschnitzel

A schnitzel is meat, usually thinned by pounding with a meat tenderizer, that is fried in some kind of oil or fat. The term is most commonly used to refer to meats coated with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, and then fried, but some variants such as Walliser Schnitzel are not breaded. Originating in Austria, the breaded schnitzel is popular in many countries and made using either veal, mutton, chicken, beef, turkey, reindeer, or pork. It is very similar to the French dish escalope.

Strömmingslåda – Swedish Herring Mould / Svensk Sildeform

A classic Swedish recipe found in “Kulinarisk Pass”
(Culinary Passport) published by Tupperware in 1970

Strömmingslåda – Swedish Herring Mould / Svensk Sildeform

Herring is one of the very best food sources for vitamin D. Our bodies make this vitamin in sunlight, but in Nordic climate, it’s easy not to get enough. There seems to be more to vitamin D than strong teeth and bones. It’s now thought that vitamin D deficiency might be a factor in many diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and diabetes.

Herring is loaded with EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These fatty acids help prevent heart disease and keep the brain functioning properly. They also seem to be effective in reducing inflammatory conditions, such as Crohn’s disease and arthritis.
