This is so cool!

I spent last friday making Lefsa with my Mom and three sisters.  We have done this for the past 10 years or so.  Making 5 batches this year instead of the usual 4, because we are having more relatives join us for Thanksgiving.  We use our Grandma Ruby's recipe, with a few minor adjustments.  This year we used a pinch more salt and a little more butter.  We all agreed that it was the best batch ever!

My Grandma was full blood Norweigan and her husband was mostly Swedish.  So there was alway differences of opinion on how to serve it.  Grandpa like brown sugar, grandma liked butter and the offspring use both!

Sounds like Lutifisk, everyone has a preference as to what to cover the delicate fish with.  Swedes put on butter, norwegians put on white sauce and Cats cover it with sand! Ha!  Just a MN joke around here.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving, and talk to you soon. 

 Need any recipies for the lefsa or Lutifisk, just let me know, I would be happy to share the family secrets.
