My daughter Laura and some of her college friends recently formed a dinner group. A mix of guys and girls, they each take a turn cooking dinner for the whole group and with nine members that means they only have to cook every ninth time, but they get to eat a homecooked meal every night. (Well, they only cook Monday through Thursday so weekends are left open for dates.)
Yesterday was Laura's turn to cook. The menu: Crockpot Roast Beef, Roasted New Potatoes (from her local farmers market!), Sour Cream & Chive dinner rolls, cut-up plums, apples and carrot sticks (also from the farmers market).
Thank goodness for IN-Calling with Verizon! I even got picture messages to show me how the Sour Cream and Chive Potato dough looked while she was kneading it! This was only her second attempt ever at making bread.
In the end everything turned out well and the homemade rolls were a hit. Laura wrote a hilarious blog post about shopping for the roast which you can read here.
