Dinner Menu

Monday night we had such a yummy dinner I thought I would share...

I made that creamy pumpkin soup I wrote about the other day (minus the cinnamon) and a new breadstick recipe that we enjoyed, which is a variation on our usual, best-loved breadsticks:

Garlic Breadsticks
1 1/4 c. warm water
2 1/2 tsp. yeast
3 c. whole wheat flour (or 1 c. cracked wheat, 1 c. wheat flour, 1 c. white flour)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1Tb. vegetable oil
1 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese (or 1/2 c. bottled variety)
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 Tb. butter, melted
sesame seeds (to be sprinkled)
  1. Coat a baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Combine warm water and yeast, allow yeast to soften.
  3. Add salt, flour(s), and oil. Combine until well mixed and dough is proper consistency (should be stiff).
  4. Mix in Parmesan cheese and garlic.
  5. Remove dough from bowl and with rolling pin roll out into rectangular shape until flat and thin (about 1/4 inch--or about size of large cookie sheet). Cut into finger-width strips.
  6. Brush top of dough strips with butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Allow to rise while oven warms.
  7. Bake at 400°F until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.
