Since I am the only member of my entire family that does a lot of cooking, and makes some darn good eats, I've taken the task of making several parts of the meal.
- Whole wheat dinner rolls
- white/sweet dinner rolls
- poached peas
- buttered corn
- herbed mashed red potatoes
- mashed potatoes
- chocolate chip cookies
If I didn't hurt like hell, I'd also make pumpkin and butternut pies, but I'm going to use up a lot of strength just making the rolls, O_o.
Plus, if I feel up to it, I'll make mashed sweet potatoes, too.
Frozen peas, cream butter, milk, sugar, and a tablespoon of flour for each cup of milk used.
Frozen corn, sugar, cream butter, salt and pepper to taste.
Herbed mashed red potatoes
1 c. Flour
1 c. Cornmeal
2 tsp. baking powder (I think, O_o. I eyeball this).
1 tsp. salt (eyeball again, O_o).
Cut in 1/2 c. shortening.
mix in 2 eggs, 1 cup milk (more if you want it more cake like).
Whole wheat rolls
Cubed Red potatoes (However much you wish)
2 cloves of garlic chopped finely.
1/4 c. of chopped green onions (Probably 2 Tbl. I eyeball this).
2 Tbl. chopped fresh parsley
Put all ingredients into a baking dish with about 1/2 c of water, cover, bake at 350 til tender. (roughly 35 to 55 minutes). Adding more water if necessary.
Let cool just a little, add butter and milk, and salt and pepper to taste. (I keep a box of instant mashed potatoes to use for filler if I add too many liquid ingredients).
Regular mashed potatoes are the same as the previous recipe, except I don't add any herbs to them, and use regular baking potatoes or yellow yukon gold.
1 +1/2 c. of warm water.
3 tsps. yeast.
1 Tbl. sugar
Mix let sit for about 10 minutes.
Mix in 1 Tbl. molasses and 1 tsp. salt
Mix in 1+1/2 c. white flour and 1+1/2 c. whole wheat flour. (Add more white flour if needed/desired).
Place in greased bowl and let rise til doubled in size.
Punch down, make rolls and place in greased baking pan. Let rise til doubled, bake at 350 for 28 minutes (Til the tops are just starting to darken).
If I can get myself to do it, I'll write up the rest of the recipes later.
