Vegas Viking President Bob Sturgeon

Well summer is here and hopefully it won’t be a hot one.  We have a busy Autumn coming up with us staying busy until the end of January.  Our Syttende Mai picnic could’ve used more attendees,the more the merrier, but the important people were there and had a good time.  The men won the horseshoe contest despite creative mathing, a new word, by somebody that Maureen knows very well.  The ladies bounced back by narrowly winning the knock over the bottle contest.  The ladies had to wait on the men for an hour but we had to be wary because a lot of water was spilled on us, especially by Maureen, she’s a Finnlander you know!  At least the weather was pretty good except for a couple of windy spells.
Somebody said the Desert Troll picnic on May 17 was a sold out success and they had a huge crowd.  Kudos on a successful public picnic!
Don’t forget June is Show and Tell month so bring in your Show things and Tell us a little about them.  Painting may resume at the back of the room.  We will have our scholarship winners at the June meeting so bring a little extra food and dessert please.
At this time, I would like to inform everyone that Ivan Goplen, a long time and beloved member, has passed away.  Our condolences to Kris, his wife, and family.  He will be greatly missed by the Vegas Vikings.  Suzan will pass along the time and location for services. See you at the June meeting.
Hilsen Bob

Rømmegrøt

Rømmegrøt by Microwave - Serves 16 (this is not actually rømme grøt because it does not use any sour ceream, but still very good)
1 cup butter
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.

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

Ingredients
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:

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.
