When I was a young teenager, I spent alot of my time at my best friend, Deannas' home. She had a wonderful family, that always made everyone feel so welcome and special. Her mom used to make this tastey creation from leftover potatoes. I had never tasted Lefse before that. Mrs M introduced me to a new favorite. It is actually a Norwiegian flatbread. This is the recipie I use from the Company's Coming Cookbook.
6 cups Mashed Potato
3tbsp Butter (softened)
1 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Milk
3 cups All Purpose Flour (I use equal parts white and brown)
Mix all ingedients together and make tangerine sized balls. Roll out on floured surface. Fry on dry 400 degree griddle, turning once.
Serve spread with butter and roll up. I like to have them with home made soup.
My kids love them.
Thanks Mrs M. Some day I will share other childhood memories. Warning to Deanna. One of my new projects will be to scan some of my old photos. Expect to see some of our Kodak Moments posted here soon!
I just had a phone call from my manager. I have been awarded a posting I had applied for before christmas. I had almost forgotten about it. This posting gives me access to more wards. I will be doing a relief position filling in all over the hospital. I love the variety! But it isnt casual. I will have a schedule every six weeks, so I can plan my life. The best thing is it is only three quarter time, which works out to 3 or 4 days a week. So I will have a bit more free time! I can pick up extra shifts if I want to and they will always be overtime because it will be over and above my slated hours. I really needed this.
Things I will have more time for with this change.....
Outings with Hubby- Gosh I have missed those lately.
Long walkies with the dog.
Photo shoots, maybe some with Deanna!
Road trips! Turn up the tunes and hit the gas!
More energy to be the Evil Homework Enforcer.
Housework. I actually enjoy tidying my house when I have the time.
More trips to the Ranch for Karaoke.
Working on my scrapbooking!
I think this warrants a celebration. Im going to make myself a mocha!
I can hear my 19 yearold son in the kitchen making himself a coffee. He is singing Candle in the wind in his baritone voice. What 19 year old sings Elton John? I love it! And they give me a hard time when I sing Nickleback tunes!
I feel good!
