Hi everyone~ Well as usual I didn't intend to wait this long until my next post. Time is just really moving by quickly isn't it? Too quickly, in my opinion. We have been busy here cutting hay, gardening, and of course cooking. On Saturday, Lil' Farmchick and I went to Taylor Swift at the state fair. Wow-that young girl can sure put on a great show. Sunday found Jr. Farmer and I at another concert, Rodney Atkins. I love alot of his songs too. We had a great time at both concerts. We have two more concerts to attend--Gary Alan and Dierks Bentley.
I had several people ask questions about the sunflowers. The sunflowers are not just for fun and to look pretty. They are an actual crop that we plant with a planter and tractor. I will be posting more on that at another time. If you would like to see the sunflowers at harvest time go here
So, I had a lot of people request the breadstick recipe. Here it is!!!
PIZZA HUT STYLE ~ BREADSTICKS
1 1/2 cups hot water
2 TB sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup non-fat dry milk
1 TB yeast
3 cups flour
1/3 cup melted butter (half for the bottom of the pan and half for the top of the breadsticks)
your choice of topping, garlic, parmesan cheese, oregano, salt, pepper ect...whatever you want!
Dissolve sugar, salt and dry milk in the hot water. Add enough flour to make a soupy like mixture. Just add slowly until it looks right to you. When the mixture is no longer hot but still warm add the yeast and stir well. Add the rest of the flour--enought to form a moderately stiff dough. Knead the dough until smooth. ( I did this in my Kitchen Aid mixer). Now roll the dough into a rectangular shape the size of your baking pan. Spread half of the butter onto the bottom of the pan and then place the dough into the pan. Spread remaining butter on the top of the dough. (I skipped this part and just sprayed Parkay Butter Spray on the top just to save a few calories but if you really want them to taste like PH breadsticks then you should probably use the butter! :) Top of dough with topping of your choice or just leave them plain. Cut the dough into breadsticks (a pizza cutter works great) and let raise for 15 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 or until golden brown. That's it folks! :)
