Vegas Viking President Bob Sturgeon
Bob Sturgeon
Hello everyone, I don’t know about you but I’m glad the weather has cooled off a bit.  At least the nights are bearable but it looks like the daytime temperatures for Renfair will be in the high 80’s which is better than the mid 90’s like last year.  We will probably be in the same spot as last year, which is near the restrooms and the camel rides.  We call it eau de Sunset!  It would be nice if some of the lodge members could visit us at the encampment if the weather permits.
At our meeting on Oct 6 we will have a video on Leif Erickson and the new world, it will last about an hour so the business portion will be shortened.  The Agenda will show the persons that need to speak, so if your name isn’t on the list please don’t add anything unless you first clear it through me.  Takk.
Please bring Norwegian style food to the meeting if you can.
Cookie making will be at Karen’s house on Oct.  19 and starts at 10 AM.  Be there or be square.  Call Karen if you have any questions.
The Bazaar will be on the 22nd of Oct with setup scheduled for Oct 21st at 6 PM.  We need all the help we can get for setup for Bazaar and Grannies Attic so your participation will make setup much smoother and joyful rather than a PITA.  I’ll be there with Norwegian style waffler and Maureen will have some non- Norwegian food as well.
The Viking ship will be visiting Fay Galloway on Oct 26 in the afternoon.  The school is in Henderson, of course!
Our Lutran church hasn’t let us know if they want us there on Oct 30 for their Junk In The Trunk.  Could one of our members find out?
Our meeting in December will also include our Christmas party and hopefully Santa will be there along with a few of his elves.  The meeting and party is on DEC. 1ST.
We have been invited back to the Liberty Baptist Church’s junk in the trunk on Dec 4 but I will confirm that date and let you know the date and time.
That closes out the year and this OFP. See you at the 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:

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.
