These are some of the best breadsticks I have ever had. They are soft, chewy, and best warm straight from the oven. I like taking them out of the oven when still slightly white on top, because they are so much better that way. Some of my favorite breadsticks I like to eat at restaurants would be Pizza Hut's or Olive Gardens. I also enjoy a breadstick and a salad together for a meal, it isn't much but appetizing. The pictures you see of the salad will be showing up in a post soon. It does look similar to the Texas Salsa recipe I posted a while back but it is much different. We all adore this salad. And everyone we introduce it to loves it as well.
2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
1/2 cup Sugar, divided
2 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
Spring means baseball season. Baseball season means my brothers spending countles hours playing it every evening. Trying to imitate the professionals. And it can be amsuing at times, because well, my brothers aren't professionals. Although they do amazingly well for 3 boys who live in the middle of nowhere. I'd have to say the oldest is the best at baseball. Andrew has always been the best out of all of us at sports. But that means that us younger kids have always tried to be better than Andrew, because in our family if you could beat Andrew in anything....that meant you were pretty good. In our family.
I'll see you shortly with a tasty dessert, have a great Monday!
