Click the photo of the above berries and it will take you to the Video…of Strawberry Pickin’
My husband, daughter and I went strawberry picking Sunday…we had our video camera along and of course she didn’t miss a chance to broadcast the fun, on the Northland’s NewsCenter.
Like Mother–Like Daughter. Oofta those berries were tasty. Last night I tried to make strawberry jam…today it is still not setting up. So I guess I’ll have to go to plan B. Strawberry sauce!
Live is good…Live it!

Ode to Swedish Potato Dumplings!
When I was a little girl in Minnesota my mother and grandmother would make Swedish Keopkakker also known as Potato Dumplings. My mother would use the grease from the fry pan used to fry up the pork or ham and make a gravy to pour over the dumplings.
My oh my…we ate these up quicker than she could serve them up.
Left overs were sliced up and fried in butter.
We pronounced it “Crewb’-cah-cah” Oofta—My mouth waters just thinking about them!
Mom and Jitterbug
One weekend soon my daughter and I will be whipping up a batch to see if they taste as good today as they did some fifty years ago!
It’s a good thing she’s in nursing school…this might just be a heart attack in a pan…
