You ladies are so kind, so loving!
I love you back!
I want you to know that!
I guess I'll keep the brown....ha!
Also,Thanks for your thoughts on what you would like to read on here.
One of you asked about the bread I mentioned in my my bread bowl and soup post.
I should have given you that recipe right away.
I found this "soft sandwich bun" recipe a number of years ago in a "quick cooking" magazine.
I use it quite frequently.
This is it:
1 1/4 C. Milk
1 egg beaten
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1/4 C. Sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
3 3/4 c. bread flour
1 1/4 tsp. yeast
In bread machine place first seven ingredients. Select dough setting. When cycle is completed turn dough onto lightly floured surface and punch down. Divide dough in half. Roll out and cut. Brush top with melted butter.Cover and let rise until double. Bake at 350 for 10-15 min
So for the bread bowls I simply pull it out of the machine kneading it a bit and divide into 6 equal balls. I let it rise for only about 15 minutes on top of the stove as the oven warms up.
Bake time is the same. So easy! Just cut out the middle once it's baked.
Since I'm giving you recipes today anyway I'll just give you this salad as well.
I started making this salad right around Christmas. I have made it a total of 6 times since then.
Translation: I REALLY like it! And its J's favorite salad!
It's called Romain Lettuce Salad:
1 head romaine lettuce chopped
1 head broccoli or cauliflower cut up
1 pkg ramen noodles, chicken flavor
1 c. pecans or almonds, sliced (optional)
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C vinegar
1/2 C. oil
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
seasoning from noodles
Cut up romaine lettuce; add broccoli, or cauliflower. Brown broken-up Ramen noodles and pecans in butter; cool enough to add lettuce. To make dressing, heat the sugar and the vinegar enough to melt the sugar. Cool and add the rest of the ingredients. Add dressing to lettuce, just before serving.
WE are anticipating some nasty weather...they keep telling us blizzard like conditions. Right now the sun is shining... so.... whatever! But we are hunkering down making sure we have lots of milk and bread. Maybe some hot soup and bread again tonight!
I wanted to show you this dessert.... I will post later this week.
