Vegas Viking President Bob Sturgeon
Bob Sturgeon
Greetings everyone!  It’s been two days after the 25th Anniversary Party and I hope everyone has recovered by now and the hang overs are gone.  The party was sold out, the food was excellent and the entertainment was great.  Raichel did an outstanding job with her medley of songs and Three Sheets to the Wind did a great job as a karaoke group with their songs going back to the 50s, 60s and 70s.  If you need a karaoke group I highly recommend them.  To everyone that helped, whether you were on the committee, a big tusen takk for not only making this a pleasurable event but a financial success.  Not all bills are in but we should clear around $2000 from the raffle and silent auction so the net cost of the whole party should be around $2000.  Not bad considering the venue, the food, the entertainment and the social aspect of it all.  Thanks to Boulder Station for not charging rent on the Railhead room.  I talked to Julie Seidlinger about giving a talk about her South Pole trip e few years ago and she was OK with that.  I’ll try to get her for May or June, whichever works out for her will be the date.  If she shows up for the May meeting then you know what the cultural show will be.  Ivar Kristensen showed up at the party with Linda and I would like to say tusen takk to him for being a member of Sons of Norway for 60 years, we’re lucky to have him as a member.  We sure missed Bob and Lollo Sievert, they could not attend, and I hope they can make the next party.  This is getting a bit long so see you at the May 4th 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.
