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

You'll have to wait till the next post to see it transformed into cornbread dressing.
Okay, next up is some French bread rolls:

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.

True confession time: I forgot to grease or line the baking sheet with parchment , so these stuck to the pan. I carefully arranged them so you couldn't see the raggedy bottoms.
Day three is over, what will tomorrow bring?
