Where did they settle down?
*most initially moved to suburbs around dallas, but spread throughout texas
*They took a liking to red meat, as there were hardly initial cows in norway
Country of origin and push factors
* Bad economy
* Ratfisk (pickeled trout)
* Julekake (sugary dessert bread)
*Fiskesuppe (fish soup)
