Keeping this ofp short so Terri can fit it in,  Our Syttende Mai picnic could’ve used a few more participants but at least the weather was perfect when the wind died down about 11 AM.  I think the weather made the picnic very relaxing and hopefully we will have the same weather next year.  A group of Vegas Vikings attended Desert Troll’s Syttende Mai on Wednesday May 17.  The atmosphere was beautiful in the park but the wind got a little breezy until about the end of the picnic.  There was over a hundred people in attendance with people coming and going throughout the evening.  The food was good and the company was great so this is something you might want to put on your list for next year.  I know I’ll be there.
Something for everyone to think about is do we want to put on a bake/small boutique sale for early November?  This needs to be discussed with the membership at our June meeting.
Don’t forget about the elections coming up in November.  This is the time to think about running for office, step up and contribute to the lodge.
See you at the meeting.
Hilsen Bob

Vegas Viking Awards Scholarships
to 5 Local Outstanding Students with Norwegian Roots.
Five outstanding Clark County high school graduates with Norwegian ancestry have been awarded $800 scholarships by Vegas Viking Lodge of the Sons of Norway. This fraternal organization preserves and promotes Norwegian heritage and culture.  Besides earning top grade-point averages, they were chosen on the basis of well-written essays on their Norwegian heritage, impressive involvement in extra-curricular activities and financial need.  They include two repeat recipients:
* Chelsey Diane Honrud of Henderson, a third-year recipient of a Vegas Viking Scholarship, is a pre-nursing student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. She also works 25 hours a week at Echelon Senior Living Center. Her plan for fall is to continue her studies, maybe at Nevada State College. She is a graduate of Foothill High School.
* Katherine Elaine Reed of Las Vegas, a second-time recipient, is a nuclear environmental engineering student at the University of Alabama where she has minors in mathematics and religious studies. She is a Spring Valley High School graduate.
* John Michaelson of Las Vegas, a graduating senior Faith Lutheran High School who will attend Concordia University Wisconsin. His goal is a doctorate in physical therapy.
* Maia Nelson, a graduating senior at Foothill High School in Henderson. Her goals are to enroll at the University of Nevada Reno this fall to begin studies toward becoming a trauma doctor with the U.S. Air Force.
* Isak Ohman, a graduating senior at Clark High School in Las Vegas. His goal is to study computer science and engineering at the University of Nevada Reno this fall.
Most scholarship recipients and their families will be guests at the lodge’s June 1 supper meeting.  Michaelson and his family joined members at the May 13 Syttende May picnic.
Scholarship funds are raised through a variety of lodge activities, including sales of a Scandinavian recipe book, annual events— Granny’s Attic at the holiday bazaar, the Vegas Viking’s encampment at the Renaissance Fair—plus private tax-deductible donations.

1 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups half & half
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
Direction: Melt butter in large microwave-safe bowl.  Stir in flour with wire whisk.  Cook until mixture bubbles; cook 30 seconds longer. Heat half & half and milk together, slowly add to flour mixture.  Stir with wire whisk while mixing.  Return to microwave until mixture begins to boil, about 2 minutes. Remove from microwave; stir in sugar and salt. Microwave 30 seconds longer.  Add more hot milk if necessary to reach desired consistency.
Serve with melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, if desired.

Thanks to Victor Tiden

so many inquiries for a super good lefse recipe, so here it is............

8 cups Russet potatoes, boiled and riced
1 cup whipping cream
2 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour

Directions - Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight.  Makes it easy to roll out.
Next day add flour and mix well.  Measure out about 1/4 cup of mix per lefse.  Form into balls and keep in refrigerator until ready to roll.
Roll on pastry cloth to about 10-12 inch in size, fry both sides on hot lefse grill at 450°.
Butter the lefse and sprinkle with a mix of cinnamon and sugar.  Enjoy!!
If you need a lefse grill, just do a search on Google.  I have the non-stick Teflon grill.

Where to find Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas:

IKEA in Las Vegas - Address: 6500 IKEA Way, Las Vegas, NV 89148

Click here to visit IKEA

The international Market, just South on Decatur by Tropicana.  I just went there last week and found multer (cloud berries), Vestland Lefse, Daim sjokolade.  I am a happy camper!!!  Also bought gul ost, geit ost, sursild and blueberry and black currant juice.   Fiskeboller and knekkebrød.  You have to do some searching to find the Scandinavian foods, most are in the back just before the fresh vegetables but they really do have some goodies.
They will also order special items if you fill out a request.  The more people that go there and purchase Scandinavian food, the more they will get and keep re-stocking. So, if you want to be able to buy Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas, please go there.  It is an amazing store and great prices.

Linie Aquavit Total Wine & More now carry Linie Aquavit here in Las Vegas.  I know many people have asked where to find that.  Stop in and tell them how great this is and get some for that special occation.
