Tea Tuesday with Lefse


Happy Tuesday! We've got light snow flurries coming down at present. But nothing like the 10+ inches of snow we got on Saturday!! That was tree branch breaking snow...this is the pretty stuff.

Today I'm having my tea with another special Norwegian treat...LEFSE. So, of course, I had to drink it out of a Scandinavian tea set.


I made the lefse on Sunday afternoon. Each time I make it I get a little better at it. I don't use a recipe because I hate to measure. Growing up I was always around when mom made her lefse. She would talk about how it should feel, look and taste. She never measured either.

If you'd like to see what my Tea Tuesday friends are up to today, please stop by Kimmie's blog. You'll see the Tea Tuesday blog roll in the sidebar.

I've never heard of lefse, so I'm glad you gave a link to it. I hate to measure, too, but I'm not a very good cook, so I improvise using a recipe. Love the cup and saucer. Thanks for my tea today!

Well you are a true chef, aren't you ... your tea looks lovely and must feel extra cozy with all the white stuff outside ... I Love the hush and purity (until it gets ... well you know) that snow brings.
Happy T from rainy Virginia :)

What a wonderful tea cup! I live in Poulsbo a town known as "little Norway" so lefse is always available here and one of my favorites. I've never tried making it though but you've inspired me to try!
