Happy Thanksgiving

After making turkey rolls last weekend, I decided that what they needed to look more like turkeys (and less like doves or baby seals!) was a wattle. Sliced dried cranberries make good-looking turkey beards.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Daughter #2 and her buddies are having a Friendsgiving dinner tonight, with each girl bringing a dish or two to share. D#2’s contributions: the ubiquitous green bean casserole and dinner rolls. At Easter, we often shape the rolls like baby chicks, so today we thought, why not make baby turkeys?!

We divided the dough into 16 pieces. We rolled each piece into a short rope, made a knot, squeezed the tip of the dough to make a beak, added peppercorns for eyes, and used scissors to cut the dough to make a feathery tail.

In the end, they look more like sweet little doves, but no matter. They will meet the same fate as the turkey: gobbled up!

Thanksgiving: dinner rolls

When I entertain, I get befuddled if I have to cook while guests are present. I leave out a key ingredient or I forget to put a side dish in the oven. I find it hard to concentrate on making conversation while wondering what I have left undone or should be attending to. I simply am not a multitasker. Thanksgiving dinner is the ultimate challenge.

To accommodate, I have learned to do as much as possible ahead of time. The food tastes better and is more apt to be ready on schedule, and I avoid becoming frazzled in the process.

These dinner rolls fit into this make-ahead plan nicely. After the final rise, I put the baking sheet in the freezer. Once the rolls are frozen, I place them in a Ziploc bag and put the bag in the freezer. To bake, I place the frozen rolls on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a 325-degree F oven.

One less thing to worry about. You can find the recipe here.
