Granny's dinner rolls redux...not just for Thanksgiving!

This is a recipe from last Thanksgiving, but these are awesome and I thought I’d post it fresh for you folks wanting everything for Christmas dinner to be extra special, and might not have found them back in the archives. Important note…you have to start these TODAY, Christmas Eve,  to have them for Christmas dinner. I know this recipe seems late since I’ve named these dinner rolls “Thanksgiving dinner rolls”, but first, they are quick and easy so you can get the recipe the day before Thanksgiving and still serve them (and have the satisfaction of hearing a lot of

Some of you…perhaps most of you…are not only foodies, but healthy food foodies, and you try to supply your family with nutritious, safe food. A few of you have more than a passing interest in keeping your pantry healthy and go out of your way to feed your family right.

Folks…if you are a homesteader…or are working toward that goal…you probably want your little slice of heaven to be as self-supporting as possible.  One way to do that is to be able to sell agricultural products you produce.

FTCLDF:  An interview with Pete Kennedy

Today we are going to be taking with Pete Kennedy. Pete’s the president of the FTCLDF (Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund), an organization I’ve been involved with to one extent or another since it’s inception on July 4, 2007.

And I’ve known Pete, who is also one of the lawyers for the fund, since about a year later, when he helped me with a little problem I was having with the Georgia Department of Agriculture. He’s an all around good guy…even if he IS a lawyer…LOL.
