Sourdough Dinner Rolls

Today I am experimenting with making Sourdough dinner rolls, by request from my Dad.

So far the experiment has turned out fairly well. The dough is proofing and it looks good.

I looked at a lot of recipes online and I was getting pretty frustrated, because all the recipes I was coming across used Active or Rapid-Rise Yeast! I don't want to use yeast because I am using a sourdough starter. So the search continued. Finally I found it! A recipe for sourdough dinner rolls that didn't call for yeast, only the starter.

I found it on Sourdough Companion. I used a tiny bit more milk then what is called for and my dough looked great! 

I'll post an update about this experiment with some pictures of the finished product later.

Have a Yummy Day!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Yesterday we had a really nice Sunday dinner after Church.
We had Bacon Wrapped Chicken, Roasted Asparagus and Crock Pot Potatoes and Rainbow Carrots! YUM!

For The Chicken I cut some boneless skinless breast and thigh meat into chunks. Seasoned with salt and Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper. Cut each piece of bacon in half, then wrapped the chicken and placed it on a sheet pan. Baked at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. To crisp up the bacon place it back in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.

For the Asparagus I just trimmed them and put them on a sheet pan seasoned with salt and pepper and baked at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.

For the potatoes and rainbow carrots I cut them into chunks and placed in a crock pot cooker with one small onion. Seasoned them with Salt and Mrs. Dash Table blend. Cook on high for about 3 hours or until tender.

I also made a gravy from the drippings of the chicken and bacon. So it was a chicken bacon lemon pepper gravy. I added a little chicken broth to the drippings after removing them from the pan, seasoned with a little Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper and brought it to a boil. Thickened with a rue of flour and water. It was so GOOD!

Knitting adventures.

For those of you who have been following my blog, you know that I am terrible at posting!
Well I had a thought........ I'll change the name of my blog and I'll start posting not only about food, but also about knitting.

I taught my self how to knit the end of 2011 beginning of 2012 and I really enjoy it.

Here are some pictures of a scarf that I've knitted.
