7th Annual Lefse Day

December 5, 2009

9:00 a.m. ~ ??

Help continue the Crim family tradition of making and eating lefse, potato cakes, kringla, and ostakaka, by sharing in the 7th annual Lefse Day on December 5th.  Teaching and baking starts at 9:00 am and goes till the goods are finished, eaten, and divided out to take home in the afternoon.  We need plenty of learners AND experienced eaters to make it worthwhile cleaning up the house—so we can get flour and dough everywhere. Rumors have it that at least Patty, Helen, and Mildred will attend to share their wisdom and good humors - pending weather and health, of course.  Equipment and ingredients provided. 


Lunch will be informal.  We're planning on soups, salads and munchies.
If you are coming from a distance, you can bring a can of veggies to contribute to "Stone Soup". Bring a salad or snack if you like.  We'll have the soup base started.  Water and coffee will be provided.  Bring your own if you'd like something different.  You can wash your dishes or take them home dirty!

Please bring containers to take the goodies home.  A large pizza box works for the lefse, big baggies work for the potato cakes and kringlas.

A comfy, sturdy folding chair or lawn chair might be handy if you're planning to do more eating than making (which is OK, you may get dusted with flour if you don't move!)


Really, this is just an excuse to get together even if you know about lefse already.  You can see how much fun we had last year in pictures on the Crim Home Page – photos by Alan Bergman.  http://www.public.iastate.edu/~carl/marjharv/index.shtml

Please let Jean know if you're planning to come: jceells@wmtel.net 
Driving directions:  from Webster City go 5 miles west on Highway 20, turn south on R-21 (Stagecoach Road) for 2 miles.   2550 is on the left (east) up a medium length lane.
