Yeah, I figured. My main quibble here is that lefse are eaten with
things other than lutefisk, and your association between lefse and
accompaniment seems a little... um... unidirectional... if you see
what I mean?
For example, if one went to the Florilegium looking for things to
serve with lutefisk, they would soon hit the references to lefse. They
are That Stuff You Eat With Lutefisk.
On the other hand, if they were looking for A) things to serve at a
smorgasbord, kala, smorrebrot, or thorrablot, or B) things to serve
with butter and cloudberry jam, or with Swedish meatballs, would they
be able to find lefse information if they weren't thinking in terms of
I guess I'm asking if, and how, things are cross-referenced.
