EDIT: About George’s Onion Rolls . . they’re really NORM’S Onion Rolls. Don’t ask me where I got George! Maybe that’s Norm’s middle name! 🙂
Some would prefer to spend a day shopping or going to the movies. When I have a day to myself, it’s either sewing or playing in the kitchen. Vince wasn’t coming home for lunch today so I had a full day to myself. Started out by grinding wheat but I was also playing around with the camera and almost overflowed the cup! The Nikon D40 just amazes me. I love it and have been talking to Santa about the new D90 but Santa doesn’t seem real receptive to the idea. Hint: There’s a link to the D90 just in case Santa needs help or forgets which one I want! 🙂
Got the bread going and decided to make a pie. Remember when I canned the apple pie filling? Today was the first day I’ve made a pie using what I canned. Yes, I used a storebought crust! Bad Judy!
Bread and pie turned out great! Or, I should say it looks great. Haven’t tasted either yet.
We’re supposed to be having red beans, sausage and rice for dinner but Chad won’t be home for dinner and that’s one of his favorite meals so I will save the red beans for tomorrow night. The beans would be fine leftover but he dearly loves fresh cornbread and if I make it tonight, I’m not making it again tomorrow night. The beans hadn’t cooked down yet when the picture was taken but they’re just right now.
Then I decided I’d make brisket sandwiches tonight since I have brisket in the fridge that was going to be for lunch today. So, I made George’s Norm’s Onion Rolls from The Fresh Loaf. These rolls are so good and I love the feel and texture of the dough when working with it.
I weigh out the dough and make each roll 3.5 ounces for buns. There was one little piece leftover. One lonely little roll .. hmmm, what should I do with that smidgen of bread dough?
Maybe make one little roll for me! Time for a break . . fresh roll, butter and an ice cold Dr. Pepper!
The loaves of bread have been put into bags, the pie is waiting til after dinner and the buns are done.
So, Dear Santa, if you’re still reading, this is what awaits you when you get home from a hard day at work. And, if you don’t want to get the D90, how about this lens?
