For most of us in the USA, Thanksgiving is a biggie. I love Thanksgiving dinner. And the best part is I don’t have to cook any of it. My sisters are great cooks and they prefer that I stay out of the kitchen–until it’s time to clean up. That’s when I do my part. I’m fine with that because I really don’t like to cook. (Kind of like Sabre.)
My favorite food at this holiday is lefse. (See picture above.) We always had it when we were kids. Lefse is a traditional soft Norwegian flatbread made with riced potatoes, flour, butter, and cream. (I know that because I’ve watched my sisters make it.) It is cooked on a large, flat griddle. (I do help with the cooking part sometimes.) Having lefse was a real treat as a kid because we got to have it hot off the wood stove then smeared with churned butter and sugar. Our family still makes it every year. (But we don’t churn the butter anymore or use a wood stove.)
Do you have a traditional family Thanksgiving dish? Or if you live outside the USA, do you have another holiday you celebrate this time of year?
