The Challenges of Family Photos

Yep, it's that time of year,

Time for the family photo.

Of course, you want all your 
loved ones in the pic . . .
but often they have different ideas.

And not always do all the photos
turn out.

Actually, it seems most did not.

Okay, it was really a dry run.
We'll try again when Mommy and Daddy
can both be in the shot
too handle all the kiddos.

Tis the Season!

Yep, the lefse is made.

#1 Son spent 6 hours in the kitchen
over the griddle helping.
Of course, he was the one who,
when he was 8 years old,
thought we should open a lefse store.
He even had the name figured out:
Okay, not very original, but . . .

Always, always, always use
real potatoes and rice them!!

Cream is essential!
So is the right rolling pin - use one with grooves
and of course, 
you need a long thin stick for flipping.

For those of you who are unfamiliar:
Lefse is a Scandinavian pastry
served with butter and, at least in our house, sugar.
Roll them up, and ahhhhhh!

I'd give you the recipe,
but then 
who would buy them when I open a lefse-R-US.
