It's the first day of spring, but it seems anything like spring. There's a misty rain, gray skies and an occasional bluster of wind. Sigh....I'm coveting blue skies and sunshine.
I'm getting ready to put together a slide show of our building process. This journey has taken us 2 1/2 years and deserves to be journaled! Hopefully in the next week, I'll have it up here in a post.
The real reason I was going to post was to share about what I made for dinner last night. Kat was hungry for turkey burgers and I just happened to have some extra turkey in the freezer. I didn't have buns though, so decided to make some homemade oatmeal rolls and use those. OH MY WORD!! They were so good. A little heavy, but definitely yummy and filling. I also made some homemade oven fries to top it off. The funny thing is that when I said what I was making on my Facebook, it ended up with 12 comments back and forth between people. I never thought buns would be such a hot topic. Mainly it revolved around the fact that I was making buns instead of simply buying them. I truly love cooking and baking and derive great pleasure from making and eating things from scratch. Plus it's just so much better for you!
Next time I make homemade buns (I won't post it on facebook...JK), I'll find a recipe that makes a lighter roll. I loved the ones I used, but they were heavy. I let them rise for quite awhile and then after the final rising, I flattened them just a bit so they would be more of a "bun" shape. To my turkey I only added a few seasonings (onion and garlic powder, pepper, season salt and some Parmesan cheese). I sauteed some onion and mushrooms to go on top. There is nothing like onion and mushroom on a burger...Oh, yum!! And you can't forget all the melted cheese.
