 NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

We spent last Friday with our grandkids at the Science Museum… a fun time was had by all, from building with wood to building with cardboard to mindbending puzzles. Personally, my favorite was watching the tornado form reminds me of growing up on the North Dakota prairie.
 
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
This week's recipe came from a cookbook from Mindekirken Norwegian Lutheran Church I got as a Christmas gift. I served it on New Year's Eve, when we always have fondue with longtime friends we met when we lived in Duluth. She said she had been served a similar salad and had been looking for the recipe. If any of you have also been looking for it, here it is!

In a blender or food processor combine the sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, onion and salt. Process until blended. With blender running, gradually add oil. Add poppy seeds and blend.
