Unfortunately I have to work today so I’m forcing the Brits to participate at work and asked everyone to bring a dish so we can celebrate. I mean they were the ones who started the whole tradition anyway right!?
I decided to make monkey bread to bring in since no one seems to have ever heard of it before, blaspheme! Since I can’t use a couple tubes of Grands biscuits to make it, I had to make it from scratch.
I made the dough, kneaded it for 10 minutes like the directions said and then put it in a warm oven for an hour where the dough was supposed to double in size. After an hour it didn’t even look like it was that much bigger, so I just chopped it into pieces and carried on making it anyway.
I tried a piece when it was ready and it was really dense and kind of hard, not as light and fluffy as it’s supposed to be so not sure what happened to my yeast. Oh well, hopefully it will be buttery, cinnamony and brown sugary enough for them to like it.
A sweet Welsh lady at work made a pumpkin pie from scratch, no canned Libby’s, it was delicious!
This Thanksgiving is my first as a married woman! I am thankful for my husband who puts up with my craziness and does so much for me and us to always better our lives.
I’m very thankful for my health, and am thankful for the life I lead and that I never have to worry about things like being hungry, or stuck out in the cold.
I’m thankful for my family and best friends who feel like family to me.
I hope you all enjoy your day , Go Seahawks!!!
yeast is a tricky one, i struggle with it in my recipes quite a bit. But it looks great!
Thanks Kelsey! I definitely messed up with the yeast, the dough was really compact and hard, not light and fluffy like a biscuit, I won’t rush it and make sure the dough rises next time!
