The artist's story behind the design
It was the memorable year of the Halloween blizzard and record snowfall in parts of Minnesota. Most everyone you talk with about it remembers where they were and what they were doing. It was the first weekend after the snowstorm that I made my way over to where Joyce lived in Minneapolis. When we first started dating, there was no shortage of ideas of how to get to know each other better. Since it wasn’t great to be traveling around on the highways and since most restaurants and pubs were shut down because of the storm anyway, we decided to spend a little time in her kitchen cooking or baking something “together”. We’re the adventurous type so we came up with the idea to make lefse, which neither of us had ever done before. We looked up the ingredients and figured this wouldn’t be too tough. She had all the makings right there in the pantry. Real russet potatoes (not the flakes), butter, flour, salt, and even whipping cream. We were all set! (we thought) The end result was that our Scandinavian creation didn’t really look like the picture of the recipe in the cookbook, but they tasted great! We concluded that having a potato ricer and a stovetop griddle would have helped. Nevertheless, we had such fun and enjoyed the time getting to know each other better. We’ve been married almost 30 years now and when we want lefse for our Holiday parties, we make the trip to a local Scandinavian market and find them already baked golden brown and ready to eat!
