Something a little different

This site has been an awesome experience for me! And I thought a good way to get know each others regional specialties would be to what I like to call
THE GREAT ROADFOOD TRADE-OFF CHALLENGE!!!!!!
It is not at all complicated. (which is good since my SO thinks I am a complete buffoon)
The wise moderators of this site gather a list of those who would like to participate, pair them off (hopefully an even number), and each member gives their favorite food recipe to their "partner".
Each participant would then attempt to make said dish and report to the rest of us "foodies".
Whaddya all think?!!!

    I'm game. I take it the recipes should be our favorite regional specialty? Or just our favorite recipe?

    O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk, how fragrant your aroma.
    O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk, you put me in a coma.
    You smell so strong, you look like glue
    You taste yust like an overshoe
    But Lutefisk, come Saturday
    I tink I'll eat you anyvay...

    --Verse with a Scandinavian twist from O Lutefisk, to be sung to the tune of O Tannenbaum

    For those who scorn scrapple, how about head cheese?

    Head Cheese
    Head cheese, also called souse and brawn, is a jellied loaf or sausage. Originally it was made entirely from the meaty parts of the head of a pig or calf, but now can include edible parts of the feet, tongue, and heart. The head is cleaned and simmered until the meat falls from the bones, and the liquid is a concentrated gelatinous broth. Strained, the meat is removed from the head, chopped, seasoned and returned to the broth and the whole placed in a mold and chilled until set, so it can be sliced.

    The tune is not mine; I copied it. But then again, I didn't invent head cheese either. . . . My parents acutally used to make me eat that stuff. . . .

    I think in a previous incarnation I must have been one of the Pennsylvania Dutch. I love scrapple and headcheese and laberkasse. The headcheese I can find around this area (mid-Hudson Valley) varies widely in quality, but is better than nothing. My last encounter with scrapple was in Maryland, and it was very good - the stuff has completely disappeared from groceries in this area. My last two sources of laberkasse went out of business, so that also has disappeared from my diet. Talk about deprivation and frustration...

    In reading the above, I am becoming seriously worried what might become of my suggestion." />
    Actually it should be fun. Anyone have any ideas of how to pair up? We should probably give a few more days for others to join in!
