Well, we’ve had another successful lutefisk dinner thanks to all of the hard work by our participating members and friends.  This is our biggest fund raiser for the year and it also is our biggest social event for the year.  Keep up the good work!  Takk for hjelpen.
Our fund raisers for january and february didn’t bring in as much as we hoped but it will all go to help pay for the 25th anniversary dinner.  Speaking of which we need for all of our members to attend this event if we are to break even.  Tickets are only $ 40 each which makes this a very good deal.  Tickets to an event like this usually cost over $ 100 so step up and attend.  We need for the members to get their tickets this month before we open it up to the general public.
Our budget has been passed by the board of directors and will be presented to the members for approval at our march 2nd meeting.
Erik pappa will present a short talk to the members on the importance of supporting scandinavian artists in las vegas and we have one who needs your support on march 12.  Erik will give you details.
We’re still looking for a cultural director to take over from me since my plate runneth over.  Don’t be bashful, you can’t possible do any worse than i’ve done.  Enough for now.
Hilsen Bob

Pianist Gretchen Hull will perform works by several Norwegian composers, March 12 2017 at Winchester Cultural Center, including Edvard Grieg, David Monrad Johansen and Geir Tviett, as well as other classical composers.
This event is being put on by the Winchester Cultural Center, 3130 McLeod Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89121 in conjunction with our lodge.   > Click here for flyer.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 the day of the show.  You may order tickets online. click here and look for "WC03/12/17 - Pianist Gretchen Hull" further down the page.
 Let’s all try to support this event!
Hull recently presented a lecture recital on many works by lesser-known Norwegian composers at Temple University in Philadelphia, where she is a doctoral fellow.  That music became the basis of her 2017 spring recital tour, during which she is performing in many venues on the East and West coasts, including the concert at Winchester, which the County is underwriting.
Hull has performed recitals for Binghamton, New York’s WSKG televised series Expressions, the Classical Pianists of the Future series, the OASIS concert series, the Immanuel Episcopal Concert Series, and multiple times for the Civic Morning Musical Wednesday Recital Series at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse.  Hull has performed and/or been interviewed on the WCNY, WSKG, and WPEL radio stations and WSKG’s television show Artist Café.
A past participant in the Chautauqua Piano Program and the International Keyboard Institute and Festival, Hull has most recently been a semifinalist in the PIANALE International Piano Academy and Competition in Schlitz, Germany.
Winchester Cultural Center is located at 3130 S. McLeod Drive.  For more information or tickets, patrons may call the Winchester Cultural Center at 702-455-7340 or visit the website at

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.
