Vegas Viking President Erik Pappa

It’s days after our annual lutefisk dinner, and it was another successful event, our major fundraiser for the year.
In a few weeks, the board will meet and hash out a proposed budget for the coming year that we will bring to the lodge for its consideration.
We are in the early stages of planning with the Desert Trolls lodge on a Syttende Mai celebration in Boulder City, and I’m sure it will be as successful as the recent ones. Mark it on your calendars!  And thank you to those who are volunteering on the event committee.
In March, the Stoughton Norwegian Dancers from Wisconsin will be performing at several venues in town.  Details on when and where should be firmed up in time for the next newsletter.  This ought to be pretty cool.
There is a European Music Festival in Downtown Summerlin in May and the organizers were excited to feature our Viking ship at the three-day event.  We have a plan, and further information will be coming.
The annual St. Patrick’s Day parade will take place in downtown Henderson on Saturday March 16 at 10 a.m.  We always have great fun there.  If you are inclined to go dressed as a Viking but don’t have all the clothes, now is the time to begin assembling them.  If you need advice on how to proceed, please let us know.  We certainly need more Vikings to march in front of the ship.  And if you know someone who might like to participate in this and other Viking-related-only activities, please let them know we are ready to accept them into our ranks!  We would like to grow our Viking brigade! 

Med vennlig hilsen,
Erik Pappa
Vegas Viking Lodge President

District News from: Luella Grangaard
President, District Six

Translating the word "Kretsstevne" :
"Krets" means a circle and "stevne" means a gathering, so Kretsstevne is translated as "a circle of friends getting together".

Kretsstevne    This fall we had three very successful District Kretsstevnes.  What happens at a Kretsstevne?  Members of Sons of Norway get together to celebrate our heritage, eat, drink, sing, dance, play horseshoes, Viking games, taste wine, food demonstrations and enjoy time with all our fraternal sisters and brothers.  In addition our Kretsstevnes also raise money for Camp Norge.  Three Kretsstevnes were held this year, the Northern was held at Camp Norge, the Central held in Buellton, CA and the southern in Banning, CA.  Approximately 20 different lodges participated in the three events.  I was fortunate to attend all three.  This year the three Kretsstevne raise over $4000 for Camp Norge.  Thank you to all the volunteers and members who donate their time, food, items for auctions and drawings.  Your efforts are appreciated by the members of District Six.  I encourage everyone in our district to take the opportunity to visit and use Camp Norge.  Also watch next spring for postings for the 2019 Krestsstevnes and mark your calendars.  I would like to meet you at one of these fraternal events.

Luella Grangaard President,  District Six  Sons of Norway

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.

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

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.
