We were creative this week in the kitchen. One could say it was the week of "rolls" of sorts. We started with Meat Rolls. I like to have all the ingredence measured before I begin assembly ( or in this case letting the kids cook) Here ( below ) you see all the stuff for the bread portion of Meat Rolls. Just your basic yeast roll recipe.
We used the bread maker to creat the dough. Then the dough is rolled out into a rectangle.
Filling is applied to the dough. This time it is sauage, hamburger and cheese. The meat is cooked, drained and cool before putting on top of the dough. Dough is rolled up like a jellyroll and the ends tucked in. Put on pan seam side up.
And put in the oven.
This is the finished product. A very filling and yummy meal.
We used the remaining sauage and hamburger from the above meal to make these lovely sauage balls. No photo of the finished product. But then there are no balls left to take a picture of! They are yummy. Super easy to make. 1/2 lb of sauage, 1/2 lb of hamburger, 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup self rising flour, 1 pkg ranch dip mix or liptons onion soup mix, one egg. Mix all ingredients very well. ( use your hands!) Shape into small balls ( about the size of a walnut ). Bake at 350 about 20 minutes. Turn half way through the cooking time.
I used Almond Bark for dipping. Some recipes suggested candy melts.
Leftover chocolate dip was not a problem!
In our school this week: It was a busy week! Lots of learning going on. The girls did so well to keep up with school and life interruptions. My desk stayed messy ( this is a sign of a productive class...right?)
School is not all books...it has been raining all week. These lovely mushrooms sprouted over night. We stood in the rain with an umbrella to get this photo. Found this web site in hopes of figuring out what this mushroom is. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/ It may take us a while to identify this mushroom! I just love the little thing on top of it.
Our youngest is developing a site for modest vintage style clothing. This is verse for the site. She loves vintage style clothing. Most of her favorite clothes come from thrift finds. She is very creative with what she finds.
We have had so much rain that it has been hard to enjoy the rose garden. The rose bushes have become quite large and are still blooming nicely. Of course with all the rain comes lots and lots of weeds. I am sure they will be waiting for me when the rain finally stops.
