Thanks for sharing the story, Lefsemaker!! It must have been a wonderful experience, especially for your son, to share the live moment when the Olympics were on!! And he got to ski on the same course where Kjetil Andrč Aamodt glided down just days before... how cool is that!!
It is so nice that you keep your Norwegian heritage alive, and keep it close to your heart and life. So, we are waiting for some Norwegian cookie recipes!!
Oops -- I'm not sure why I was putting an "r" on the end of lefse -- it doesn't belong there! Ah, well, I'm still learning. I will post some of the Christmas cookie recipes, however, they may not be a whole lot different then the ones on the "Sons of Norway" site, or some of the other sites that include recipes for ethnic food. As for the moment, I am going to sleep. Thank you for your responses.
Welcome lefse. I am also new here and am a fellow Norwegian.
I grew up making rosettes, lefse, and potato dumpings every Christmas with my great granny and granny. Potato Dumpings is a tradition that my family has continued over the years- just wouldn't be Christmas Eve without them!!
Thanks for sharing, always fun to meet a fellow Norwegian.
The thing that is really hard and really amazing
is giving up on being perfect and beginning the journey of being yourself.
