    I'm not sure if there are any Norwegian teachers out there, but maybe there is someone who could help! We are looking for Norwegian alphabet books, posters, or alphabet cards(like what we use in the US-"A-apple, etc." Any resources or websites would be helpful!

    Thanks!

    Try Googling "Norsk alphabet" - you'll get a slew of sites.

    (Norsk is Norwegian for 'Norwegian'.)

    My mother had quite a collection of cookbooks. After she passed away, they were divided up. I have one - Ekte Norsk Mat (Authentic Norwegian Cooking). If you need any recipes, let me know!

    For example - Norwegian sardine pate, pickled beets, creamed cabbage, cod tongue, reindeer roast with game sauce, troll cream, Christmas bread

    I don't suppose "troll cream" is that dessert that's basically cream boiled down till it's thick - scandalously caloric, and it sounds hideous, but it's really quite good.

    This recipe has egg whites, sugar, lemon juice, and fresh ligonberries.
    Actually, you don't cook it at all. (I don't know how safe that would be with the egg whites in it.)

    Lingonberries, yum! (Think of tiny cranberries with attitude.) But no cream at all - clearly that's what makes it troll cream. In Scandinavian folklore, trolls are notorious tricksters and troublemakers.

    The author of the cookbook writes - "The magic of this dessert is that the more you beat - the greater the quantity."
    So, I guess that when the "trolls" beat the egg whites, they are making magic cream! (?)
