More From Thanksgiving

 Remember that sourdough starter?  Well, last weekend when I made some bread, I made a double batch of dough.  I baked one into a loaf (see a previous post), and put the rest in the refrigerator for Thursday morning.  It kept rising even in the cold. 

Once it warmed up, I cut it into small strips and tied them in knots to make some dinner rolls.  They turned out great.  
 
That was a wheaty dish; again, there were wheat-avoiding people in attendance.  Therefore, I made the traditional apple crisp with oat flour.

 It was delicious.  I know I keep saying that…. but honestly, nothing was bad.  Wait, there was one thing I wouldn’t make again. It was the marinated beet salad.  Not that I don’t like beets – I love them.  And this year, A grew the most delicious beets.  But he tried a new recipe – the seasonings were mustard and nutmeg.  Those flavors did not do it for me, although it’s a beautiful dish.  Here he is peeling and slicing the cooked beets, and below that is the luminous finished product.
  
Last night we had leftovers.  Yay for leftovers!

    The rolls look so good — I love sourdough bread. And of course, I know how the apple crisp tastes. Beets are OK but not my favorites, though I agree that they are really pretty. Your Thanksgiving dinner is outstanding — so many good cooks gathered in one place.
