There’s something about Target that just says – hand over your money because you don’t really need it anyway… or something like that. Right? I mean how often do you walk in there and leave without spending way more than you ever wanted to? It’s nearly impossible. Granted, it’s not like I buy things that are total nonsense… okay maybe sometimes but they always have their uses. Socks for the kids, candy for my belly (totally justifiable), the latest Essie color… all necessary. And don’t get me started on the dollar section and holiday area.

Is Target the same way for you? What stores totally sucker you in?

Next to turkey and pie… Thanksgiving is all about the carbs. Right? I mean we’ve got stuffing and rolls and potatoes and nom nom… sorry I’m already going into a carb coma. I can’t wait. The things I look forward to most are stuffing, pie, rolls and mashed potatoes. I could *gasp* live without the turkey. Just pile my plate high with everything else and I’d be totally content. This year I’m actually skipping the giant bird and just doing turkey breast. I figure, fewer people and no one eats the dark meat so why waste it. Buy what you’re going to eat.

Anyway… rolls… Ever since I was little, rolls have always been a huge part of Thanksgiving. It’s one of those holiday memories that’s permanently ingrained on my brain. Clover rolls make me think of Thanksgiving. That’s *the* roll we have every Thanksgiving and I’m sure it won’t change. It’s just how it is. But I do try lots of others, including this one which is basically a recreation of some of my other favorites.

These rolls are soft with a slightly crisp shell. They’re packed with flavor from the onions, garlic and herbs. Slather a warm roll with butter and you’ll be in heaven.

  • 3 - 3 1/2 C all purpose flour

  • Heat milk to 115°F. Mix in yeast and sugar. Allow yeast to proof for 5-10 minutes.
