Keep On Rolling Counter Protector—Must Be the Wine Blue
A student in my lefse class lamented the loss of his granite kitchen counter. His hot lefse grill had cracked the counter. I’ve used a pizza tin as protection under my hot grill. But now I’ve taken up sewing and made (slowly) a counter protector of two 15 3/4-inch circles of cotton covering a 100% food grade sheet of silicone that resists temperatures of 480 F degrees. Then I had an inspirational message “Keep On Rolling” embroidered on the edge. The result is you’re pumped to keep making lefse, and your valuable kitchen counter is safe! Plus, for some reason I think of a good red wine when I look at the scarlet bubbles and swirls with blue embroidery in the design, which makes for a relaxing night of making lefse!
