A State Treasure on 94--the Norske Nook

If you're ever on the road to Minneapolis, you must stop in Osseo, Wisconsin for a piece of pie at the Norske Nook. They also sell lefse. Since Dean's Norwegian we have to stop for some cultural enrichment. Mouth-watering cultural enrichment. 

We agreed right away to share so we could all try different kinds. 


Pecan Cream Cheese. 

He ate his fast....Grasshopper. 

And a bite of Apple Cranberry. 

I had Blueberry Sour Cream if you must know. There was no such thing as a bad slice.

We're Back, We're Okay, and Have Some S'mores on a Cone.

Sorry about leaving you all for 6+ months. Its been a tough year with L's illness and I just needed some time off. I can't promise its all over, but it is a bit better for now. 

Sometimes you just have to take what you've got, smile, and make the best of it. 

We did make something fun the other day which I wanted to share with you. 

Cone S'mores!

L. loved helping with this, even though he couldn't eat one. 

Cone s'mores have all the tastiness of a regular s'more, but without all the mess. Plus you can make them in bulk over a campfire the same way they make dinner packets. 

Random ingredients: 

sugar cones
chocolate chips
mint chips
candy bars
dried fruit

You don't need all those things. Just use what you have or what sounds good. I made pecan marshmallow cone s'mores myself. One of my kids used Andes candies and marshmallows. 

Fill cones.  

 Roll in tin foil. I would also recommend you spray the tin foil with an oil spray because it can get really sticky. 

Heat on the element of your choice.
