I meant to do this follow up post on the Sticky Lemon Rolls a couple of days ago, but – as usual – time got away from me.
They were delicious! I found them to be a smidge on the tart side but they earned three “very good” comments from HRG, so they have her stamp of approval. If I make them again, I think I’d sweeten up the icing a little – then they’d be perfect!
It makes my grandmother nuts that I never (or rarely) use the same bread recipe twice. Emma’s Everyday Bread has gotten some repeat action but that’s one of the rare ones. Today’s recipe came from the Daily Dish Recipes blog. Their Favorite Homemade Sandwich bread recipe has a chewy crust with a soft, squishy center. I’m not sure how it toasts (HRG’s favorite way of eating bread) but I had a turkey sandwich for dinner and it was delish. This recipe yielded enough dough for two loaves; the second half is in the fridge so there will be more homemade bread later this week, in case someone drops additional not-so-subtle hints.
I swung by this afternoon to rope off my plot and remove some of the larger rocks, and – to my novice eye – it still just doesn’t look plant-able. I made a couple of phone calls about tiller rental this afternoon (because no one seems to know where my grandfather’s tiller has gotten to), and we are pretty sure the ground needs to be broken up some more. Hopefully we can reach a decision about it before the end of the week. We have until the 20th to get seeds in the ground or risk losing our plots.
At least we’re getting rain.
