Although I have made them by myself, the process goes twice as fast when she rolls the cookie and I can add more batter to the griddle. And of course, having someone's company makes any job so much better.
Cook the krumkake on one side for about 30 seconds. Rotate pan to the other side to cook for an additional 30 seconds, or until it is the desired color.(It helps to have a clock with a second hand.)

Plus...Emily is a good cook...a fabulous cook. How does this happen? Is it genetic?? We do have a history of some great cooks in our family. Aunt Enid was a pretty good cook. Aunt Bertha was a really good cook. Aunt Darlene is an excellent cook. My Aunty Vivian was an amazing cook.
I predict that Emily will be one of the best cooks on our family tree!
Last night she made Shrimp Newburg...another entree from my Rachel Ray magazine.
After dinner, the three of watched my absolute favorite movie of all times...The Sound of Music...
This is the first movie I ever saw in a theatre.
My mom remembers that we had taken my grandma to Moorhead, Mn., to stay with her sister, Birdie. The rest of us, my Aunt Enid, my mom, cousin Betty, and I stayed at the Comstock Hotel. (Betty can you help flesh out this story? Was there anyone else?? Your mom???)
That is Aunt Enid on the left...my mom (in curlers)...and me. This picture is dated June, 1966, which makes me 10 years old...
Watching the Sound of Music during the Holiday Break
is just one of My Favorite Things.

The dining table had been converted to a gift wrapping center for about 3 days. Do you think Lucy thinks that she is hiding and we can't see her??
Emily wrapped most of my gifts too...while Line enjoyed some after-school Party Mix.
On our last day of school, Emily was our delivery girl for my Advisory Group's pizza party. I have Sophomores...and the boys were eager to help her...need I say more?
And finally, home for the holidays. We are missing Amy, since she wasn't able to come. Isn't Skype the best?!
All this cooking, baking, cleaning, shopping, wrapping, decorating and socializing has been exhausting...
And Christmas eve...time for family to gather for worship services, good food and fellowship. We enjoyed Elegant Wild Rice Soup with other holiday appetizers.
