Lefse Legacy

In the DillyDally family ... Thanksgiving is not about the turkey ... Christmas is not about the cookies ... the Holidays are all about the lefse!  The same was true for both Mr. DD and my childhood as well!
This was the second year that Brother and Girlfriend were here to participate ... so much more fun with them involved ... plus, it lightens the work load!  Lefse takes the entire day ... makes a huge mess ... but is absolutely worth it!
A mountain of lefse is a beautiful sight!  Ten pounds of potatoes + five pounds of flour + butter, cream, sugar and salt = five dozen lefse rounds!  Of course there was a bit of taste testing ... quality control is important as we do share it with others!
Such a feeling of satisfaction when packaging for the freezer ... childhood memories ... my grandmother and mother ... our children's childhood experiences with lefse ... and this year more memories were added to the family lefse legacy.  Traditional food ... it defines a culture and serves as a glue that help hold a family together.  So simple, yet so powerful!

Do what you love.  Celebrate tradition.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally
