Mom and Grandma Ora peeled the potatoes the day before then early Saturday morning Josi and I boiled, drained and mashed them. Then we put them on the table outside so they could cool.
We had a new trainee this year. This is my niece. She was in charge of quality control. She did a fabulous job! Every lefse she tried passed the rigorous taste test.
After our lunch break my sister took a little cat nap. Totally understandable since she was up late in the hospital with Grandma and got up early to go stay with her as well.
Lefse is a very serious business!
Everyone did their part to get the job done. Well, almost everyone. =o)
Lefse is also a messy business! This was my work station. I was the mixer and one of the rollers this year. My shoulders are still sore.
Here are a few of the bowls that held mashed potatoes and lefse dough. Every bowl that was big enough to hold a good amount of potatoes was used.
This was one of the flipping workstations. Flour covers every surface in the kitchen by the time we are done. Clean-up is so much fun! Or not.
