Greetings fellow members, as the year draws to a close, I would like to thank all of the members that were able to give so much time to the lodge in supporting this wonderful lodge.  Tusen Takk!
I am saddened to announce that Jerry King, Ellen King’s husband passed away on December 20, 2016.  Our thoughts and prayers for Ellen and her family and friends.
January will be an active month for us so get plenty of rest and get ready to work.  The first item will be the January 5th meeting which will have our silent auction using "White Elephant" gifts from Christmas as auction items.  If time permits we will have Chicken Shoot also.
We have a Junk in the Trunk appointment with Kim Roden at her Merryhill school on January 19th starting at 5 PM.  Directions and staging times will be given at the general meeting.  We will need 6 to 8 Vikings to help with passing out candy and photo ops.
January 21st will be our Board meeting at Flemings bake shop on Water St. in Henderson, of course.
Our 25th Anniversary Celebration meeting time has not been determined but it will be announced at the January 5th general meeting.
January 28th is the date for our world-famous Lutefisk Dinner at the Elks lodge on Boulder highway in Boulder City.  We need at least 30 volunteers for each shift in order to have a smooth flowing dinner so please volunteer to help out if only for a few hours.  Be ready to order Lutefisk tickets at the January meeting and reserve your tickets for our 25th anniversary party at the Boulder Station Hotel and Casino.  Lutefisk tickets are $20 each and Anniversary tickets are $40 each.  See Gwen for Lutefisk tickets and Erik for Anniversary tickets.
I wish all of you God Jul, Godt Nyttar.
See you at the January meeting.
Hilsen Bob

kjevleFavorite Recipe


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.
Serve with melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, if desired.
This rommegrøt recipe was taken from the Global Gourmet, Concordia Language Villages, Moorehead, Minnesota. Recipe submitted by Amy Erickson, longtime Concordia College Food Service Manager.
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.
