In this area, a lot of people have Norwegian heritage; I have a Norway connection on both sides of the family. I like my lefse. And now even more Minnesotans will know where to find it.

One of my high school friends shared a commercial he saw online, and I thought it would just be a funny "Uff Da" comedy spoof. It turned out to be a Minnesota Lottery commercial featuring a place he used to work at, Norsland Lefse.

I always enjoyed when Kirby would stop over to my place with some lefse, and I've picked it up in stores in the area as well. If you're not able to make it over there to buy some, but want some Norwegian novelties, you can also buy it online. There are also some great things to eat for breakfast and lunch if you stop in too, including a Norse Dog

It's great to see a local business make the big scene. And happy syttende mai to all of you out there!
