Guess what we are eating?

Corn is in! It is a meal accompaniment every second night or so...sweet delicious, 5 steps and 5 minutes from harvest to plate...what a pleasure.

It's so hot here that we are eating easy dinners that don't require long in the kitchen. Hamburgers are the easiest thing to make. Chicken burgers are also frugal and quick. I have figured out the perfect hamburger roll recipe.

Into my bread machine I put:
210ml milk
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup buter in small blocks
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 3/4 cup bread flour
2 tablespoons usgar
1 sachet yeast

Set to dough cycle. When alarm goes shape quickly into rolls, this is a soft moist dough, do not overwork. Allow to rise slightly while oven heats, cook for 20 minutes at 180 deg C.

Hard to imagine that you are having such warm weather while we have minus 20 degrees Celcius here in Toronto! The corn looks beautiful and delicious!

I'm going to try my hand at bread making. I do have a bread-making machine up in the attic(!) but I want to get back to basics and try it by hand. (I WILL use my dough hook on the kitchenaid mixer though). Keep up the good work Wendy!
