Uffda!


Uffda!


Christmas arrived
yesterday
in Northeastern Wisconsin.

Tradition demands
baking
the Norwegian treats
from the Old Country
that make the season special.

We toasted Norwegians
not with us,
and those
who are of
"mutt"
extraction (like me!)
who've learned the old ways.

Sandbakkels
Krumkakke
...Special sugar cookies...
and Lefse.

Potato pancakes,
dough rolled flat
and flipped onto a special
skillet.

Cooled.
Slathered with
butter,
sugar.

Uffda!

I had to check...

'UFF DA' is ...

* trying to dance the polka to rock and roll music
* losing your wad of gum in the chicken yard
* having Swedish meat balls at a lutefisk supper
* spending two hours cleaning up my room and mom says "Uff Da"
* walking downtown and then wondering what you wanted
* arriving late at a lutefisk supper and getting served minced ham instead
* looking in the mirror and discovering you're not getting better, you're just getting older
* trying to pour two buckets of manure into one bucket
etc. etc.

Greetings from Helsinki! Near Norway! :)

She, wearing her Packers jersey shamelessly. What's wrong with this picture? Uffda means more here than meets the eye!! (But I adore the definition left by the previous commenter, and ADD *being a Vikings fan in 2010!!!)

Am putting "make lefse" on the to do list right now!
