Giving Thanks


Hop over to Kelli's blog, There is No Place Like Home, if you want to participate in her "Giving Thanks" celebration this week (Monday through Thursday). Kelli invites everyone to share crafts ideas, recipes, Thanksgiving traditions -- anything to do with Thanksgiving.
My contribution: garlic cheese rolls. This is the closest recipe I've ever found to the delicious yeast rolls my grandma used to make daily back on the family farm in Virginia. When you bite into one . . . mmmmmm. Like eating buttery air, only better. These make a wonderful addition to the Thanksgiving dinner table. I make them in the bread machine, so they don't take a whole lot of effort. The recipe makes 24, but you'd better count on everyone eating at least two or three.
Don't say I didn't warn you.

That is certainly one of the special things about holidays ... the traditional family foods handed down for generations.

What a great sounding recipe for any time!!

Garlic cheese rolls sound wonderful! I'll have to make them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's funny because I just saw your book in our local Lifeway a few days ago and I really want it. It looks adorable and your writing style is so friendly and encouraging. It's on my Christmas list. :)

50s Housewife, I'm happy to hear that Queen of the Castle is on your Christmas list :) I hope Santa brings it to you.

I love your blog, btw. The flippy calendar hostess gift you posted about recently was such a great idea. I'm on the lookout now for some nifty flippy calendars. Thanks for the great idea.

This sounds like another one of the Queen's staples--that's what these recipes become. The fondue is one of them, as well. Thanks for keeping our household happy!

Jana, the queen is honored that your household is enjoying the fondue. Thanks for your encouragement :)
