Day 3 of Thanksgiving Prep

Okay, we're up to day three of Thanksgiving prep. Let's make some cornbread for the dressing.

I was losing the light and couldn't get a good shot of the batter, so here it is in the oven:

You'll have to wait till the next post to see it transformed into cornbread dressing. :wink-kitty:

Okay, next up is some French bread rolls:

Please note that my container for wheat gluten is an old yogurt container. Fancy! :dance: Since we are working with wheat, here's a shot of the wheatberries before they took a spin in my grain mill:

That's hard red wheatberries on the left and soft white wheatberries on the right. After a few minutes in the grain mill ( please wear ear protection!), You get this:

Hard red flour is again on the left and soft white flour Is on the right. Because these flours are whole grain, it's best to only grind what you need for a recipe, or store the flour in the freezer. My shoulders balk at too much kneading, so I'm going to use the dough cycle on my bread machine to make the dough and do the first rise and punch down.

Ugly dough, huh? After shaping, rising, and baking, you get this:

True confession time: I forgot to grease or line the baking sheet with parchment :doh:, so these stuck to the pan. I carefully arranged them so you couldn't see the raggedy bottoms. :pb_lol:

Day three is over, what will tomorrow bring? :think:

It's really easy if you have a good grain mill. :pb_smile: I selected a grain mill that can also do some of the more "exotic" flours like rice, chickpeas, etc..., so that I can try out some recipes without paying the crazy prices the grocery store charges for those flours. Since I'm on sabbatical from my home improvement projects, I have time to do some experimenting. 

Hey, I'm in awe of your computer skills. That blog post you did about the serious computer issues you were dealing with at work and how you didn't kill anybody while fixing it was awesome. I didn't understand most of the technical details, but I do have experience with people not understanding that job X requires Y amount of time, and interrupting me to complain about it, just increases the amount of time it takes me to finish it.

      I'm confused by this new post on the Dillard's blog, "how to love your wives like you mean it" as opposed to how to love your wife like you love her? And this should be from a name perspective reading the first few lines... I don't get it I have reread it like 3 times in a row and still 🤷‍♀️

      I found FJ because  was doing some Internet research.  I almost married a man who was pretty much fundamentalist (long story there, the best thing that's ever happened to me was when he broke up with me.  I was 18).  We both wanted a big family and since we were engaged, I started reading up on large families.  

      Enter Erika Shupe.

      (Yes, I know.)

      After thinking this woman was insane, I decided to straight-up Google her name (I think I found her website on a Pinterest board).  By that time, her website had been scrubbed or deleted or whatever.  Instead, I found FreeJinger.  That had to be about 2018?  I followed along while her oldest found freedom (and someone suggested renaming the site FreeMelanie or FreeKaren, which ever daughter was the next.  That's when I realized FreeJinger was about Jinger Duggar... DUH.)

      I stayed and decided to make an account because I love the snoop, the snark, and the overall style of the site.  I think it's interesting how clearly you'all've dissected these families and done research into their histories.  I am a conservative Christian and I've grown up around some pretty fundie families, even though they don't claim to be fundie.  Anyway, it's just interesting stuff to me.  To be clear, I don't like fundieism and I'm glad that I missed that bullet.

      Information I found out today is the Coronavirus is running rampant at Gwen’s church.  Twenty-two confirmed cases and many more refusing to be tested.  No word if Gwen or Joe have it.

      I'll be honest: I'm a Christian and I want to adopt.  But I'm *not* Fundamentalist and I'm *not* about shoving Jesus down people's throats.

      I recently started watching Counting On from the very beginning (just got Hulu).  Hearing Jessa talk about adoption while Spurgeon was a baby is kinda ... 😨 My biological sister was adopted at birth, and ever since I learned that fact I've had strong feelings about adoption.  In my sister's case, her parents were older and unable to have more children (they had one biological child).  My sister and I both have an endocrine disease that practically guarantees us fertility issues, and we've both expressed the intent to adopt someday.

      But Jessa . . . I'm worried if anyone wants to adopt because of their savior complex, and that's exactly what Jessa seems to have.  

      (Plus, I'm not sure I can see Ben and Jessa loving a child who isn't like them in race, ability, etc. Obviously they're the best 🙄).
