Lefsa!

One night this week I went to my Mom's house and made lefsa with my grandma, mom, and aunts. Lefsa is a Norwegian soft flat bread made from potatos that you cook on a griddle. Typically, I like it rolled up with butter, cinnamon, and sugar...yum. You can buy it in the grocery store too already made and ready to eat! I love it! Making lefsa has been a tradition in our family that I hope to pass on to our little ones. My mom, her two sisters and sister in-law, and mom typically get together to make lefsa right before the holidays. This is my second year helping out. The wine flows (not for me this year :( ) and we usually order pizza. It is so nice to chat and catch up with my family. It is really neat seeing my mom interact with her sisters and mom too. Sisters are the best. If my sisters would ever move home...hint hint! Come on girls! Grandma Hiatt, Aunt Sandy, Mom, Aunt Polly, Aunt Kathy, and I in front of the griddle.Grandma getting the dough ready to role out. Aunt Polly on griddle patrol.


On another note, I had my friend/co-workers baby shower on Saturday at my Job Share Partner, Diane's house. She is the most creative person I know! She had the most beautifully decorated fall home. Her tablescapes are to die for! Check it out...



Great idea if you are hosting Thanksgiving! She also in the living room had a glass bowl filled with water and had the little pumpkins floating in them. She had carved out the pumpkins to fit tealights in them. It was a beautiful center piece. Thanks for the ideas Diane!
