Today I am so grateful for holiday traditions! My mother-in-law, Sharon, and I have been making lefse together since my husband I were first married, now 12 years strong. Lefse is a Norwegian flatbread made from potatoes, flour, buttermilk and butter. It's rolled flat on a special lefse rolling board, slapped unto a 500º griddle, then eaten slathered with butter and a dusting of sugar. At Sharon's chagrin, my lefse was sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon.
Everyone has their own traditional holiday foods, events, places to visit, treats to make, people to see. What gets you most excited this holiday season? I'm madly in love with food, so cooking events really fill my happiness cup. Like this Community Education class I was privileged to teach at the local community kitchen.
