Well, my sister Cathy has never made it. So I told her we would make some while she was visiting. That way she could take it home with her and have it all to herself! I showed her the recipes I have and she made copies of them. Then I had her roll it out and fry it. Susan and the girls have all learned how from the Sons of Norway lodge that they belong to in ND.

Later in the day, Cathy and I decided to give Suzanna her birthday present. Her birthday is the 30TH and we wouldn't be with her on the actual day. She will be a teenager! Thirteen years old! So we had her open her gifts from us that afternoon.
That night, Kevin set to work again in the kitchen. Each week back home in Dickinson, ND, he prepares a Scandinavian meal on Saturday nights. He prepared Bergen Easter chicken and cucumber salad. Susan helped by making roasted vegetables: parsnips, rutabaga, potatoes and carrots, drizzled with roasted garlic infused oil and later topped with balsamic vinegar. The whole meal was scrumptious! Along with that we ate more lefse. Here is Kevin's description of the entire meal.
In case you haven't figured it out, we Moberg's eat a lot. There is never a shortage of food when we all get together!
