My new job is all job-a-riffic, and I'm loving it, but I've been busier than the proverbial one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest, so cooking has, sadly, taken a back seat.
I'm digging up lots of crock-pot recipes, and on my days off, if there's time, I aim for the more elaborate cooking plans. Tuesday, I made bread - 2 loaves of French bread and a big batch of what I'm calling Garlic Butter Bread Balls.
They're pretty much what they sound like - I took 2 loaves worth of French bread dough and after the second rising split the dough into 24 balls, then let them rise for about an hour. Cooked them at 400F for 10 minutes, then slowly dropped them down to 300F until they were light and golden brown all over.
Once they'd cooled a little, I dipped each one in melted butter with crushed garlic in it, set them to dry a little and sprinkled some kosher salt on them
I will be making these again, I have decided.
