good feeling 20
uuuuf today was a marathon eats day. sunday might be a day of rest, but there is no resting for my stomach. i tend to do a lot of cooking on sundays... like four hours worth today. kelsey and i made t-gives dinner for our friends. it was bomb i must say... there were rotisserie chickens. mashed potatoes and gravy. grape salad. this soup. these rolls. that pie. pat on back. fist pump. needless to say, it was a pretty good pregame.
how many boys does it take to "carve" a chicken you might ask?
here's the recipe. you will want it.
makes about two dozen
2 packets yeast (4.5 T)
1/2 c warm water sprinkled with sugar
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c oil
2 t salt
1/2 c warm water
4 1/2 c flour
mix yeast in water and let it bubble and dissolve. in a separate bowl, mix eggs, sugar, oil, salt, warm water, and yeast mixture with a mixer until combined. add flour cup by cup, knead with hands, butter dough, and put it in a bowl to rise until doubled in size, about an hour. after it has doubled, punch down the dough, roll it out, and cut out circles using a cup. fold the circles in half, then pinch them at the edge (does that make sense?) let rise 30 more minutes, then bake at 400 until done!
