With three women in the house it has worked best for us to having a cooking schedule. My days to cook are on Tuesdays and Saturdays. As much as I love cooking, I have to say that having a schedule and actually getting to plan what you're going to make makes it even more enjoyable.
Tonight's menu consisted of this...
The soup is just a basic recipe, but yummy nonetheless. The rolls however...these are so delicious. We've had this recipe for years, passed down by a friend, and there's never any complaints when they find their way to the dinner table. :) If you've never had these, you've been missing out...until now that is. Here's the recipe so you can enjoy them as well!
Garlic Cheese Rolls
4 3/4 to 5 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 pkg yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 TBS parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat milk, water, and butter until very warm (120* to 130*); stir into dry ingredients. Stir in egg and enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic (about 6-8 minutes). Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.
With a sharp knife, divide dough into 24 pieces. Shape into balls, place in greased 11x14 pan. In small bowl, combine butter and garlic; pour over rolls. Sprinkle parmesan over rolls.
Cover, and let rise in warm oven 30-45 minutes until doubled.
Preheat to 375. Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
