I'm cleaning our guest room and changing the sheets in preparation for Santa's arrival ... because I figure that, given Norway's butter crisis this holiday season, he'll take one taste of my Norwegian Berlinerkranser cookies - naughty and nice at the same time - and decide to move in until the Nordic spring thaw (if not permanently, since I'd introduce him to the principles of the New Nordic Diet rather than feeding him a low-carb, high fat diet like Mrs. Santa does).

For a humorous look at Norway's butter crisis, check out this video by that master of satire, Stephen Colbert.

Based on my maternal grandmother’s Norwegian recipes she passed down, this holiday should be a high-carb, high-fat time in Norway. ;-)
