THE NORSKE NOOK

Today we took a road trip to Wisconsin, to the birthday party of the wife of my grandpa's cousin, or some such close relationship! But, really the relationship has always been closer....we've always called her aunt Liz. She celebrated her 85th birthday today, and my husband drove the van loaded with me, my sister Ruth and her husband Ike, and my sister Lois. The drive was about three hours, and when we arrived at my aunt Elaine's home we found she had made reservations at The Norske Nook for lunch. Now the Norske Nook is known for their Norwegian foods, lefse, meatballs, Norwegian pancakes, lingonberry sauce, and their incredible pies.
This one was mine.....sour cream raspberry.....and was it ever good!
Ike enjoyed his sour cream raisin..........
And Little Margie had the lemon meringue.
Next time we'll skip the lunch and go right for the pie!

I'd love to have a piece of that pie to go with my morning coffee right now...sometimes we need to indulge ourselves and it sounds like you were in good company...we all need partners in crime! Thanks for sharing your tasty treats....

We *love* the Norske Nook! We stop there sometimes on our way to my in-laws house in Fond du Lac. I love lefse, and the Lingonberry jam is to die for!
