I planned on an interval workout today, but Ellie suggested I spend some quality time with Parsenn. You see, Parsenn has officially been confined to the kitchen when we're not home because of some very bad behavior. In the last week he has eaten: Three magazines, my ski goggles, two legs of our dining room table, one iPod shuffle (still working, though!), a baseball cap, one of Ellie's boots, two slippers, and two cookbooks. So instead of an interval workout, I took Parsenn on a run. We covered our usual 5K course, and despite two potty stops, he shattered his old PR and ran 25:50. Atta Boy!
Then, tonight one of our favorite shows featured MinneSOTAH foods. Bizzarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern traveled the state, with his first meal coming at a Lutefisk Dinner in Cyrus, Minnesota. What's Lutefisk, you ask? Well, here's what I learned:
1. Main ingredients: Cod and Lye.
2. The Olsen Fish Company in Minneapolis is the world's largest Lutefisk distributor.
3. It is actually poisonous at one point during its production.
4. The key is to "not breathe in while eating it."
Later in the show, not only did he eat a fish called a "Sucker Head," but he ate the HEAD OF THE SUCKER HEAD, which is not all that appealing:
Any of my Minnesota RBF's ever eat this stuff? I guess I'd give Lutefisk a shot if given the opportunity when I visit for Grandma's Marathon in June, but I'm not so sure about the Sucker Head.
