The last Monday of August is the traditional last bank holiday of the year.
Often considered a nice way to round off the summer?
The weather has not been too great here, a bit on the chilly and windy side.
But it doesn't matter!
Our Spanish friends are approaching the end of their annual visit and I met up with them for a lovely Spanish lunch in their camper van followed by a walk in the blustery weather. You might recall our meeting last year. This time they invited me to see the camping site and their lovely camper van. I was so impressed! Camping sure has changed since I was a kid...!
As we agreed todays meeting late last night I didn't have time to prepare anything elaborate to bring with me, so I quickly made some Norwegian 'lefser' and brought as a dessert. Sounds grander than it is, these are semi-ready packs I brought back from Norway this summer - Our Boy loooooves them.
So, there was little for me to do, except moisten them and add butter, sugar and cinnamon on them.
They were a great success!
I still have some packs of 'lefse' left, but I really should learn to make them myself as they go quickly in this house! I remember my mother's cousin used to make for Christmas (my mother would make another cake - 'krumkaker' - and then they would swap) and how she used to elaborate on how much work they were...
Hmmm... does anybody have a good recipe for 'lefser' they are willing to share?
