ordinarily, i have my act together; i don't miss appointments, i am usually early so that i am not late, i remember things. not this week. instead of being on the ball, i have been hit by it. somehow, i managed to miss, and i mean completely miss, this weeks challenge for tuesdays with dorie. i read the post, i knew it was coming. i just assumed it was next week. time to get my head out of my (insert the noun of your choice here) and get to work.
the challenge this week is the berry galette and it is hosted by lisa of tomato thymes in the kitchen and andrea of the kitchen lioness. to read the full recipes, visit either of their sites and to see the entries from the other members, visit tuesdays with dorie.
i love to make galettes. they are easy to assemble and they aren't supposed to look picture perfect. how can you not love that? the dough is quickly mixed up in the food processor. the recipe called for 1/4 cup of cornmeal and i immediately went to the freezer and pulled out the bag of blue cornmeal that i keep stashed in there. blue cornmeal gives doughs and odd shade of grey but the nutty flavor and slight crunch it adds make it a wonderful addition to any recipe calling for cornmeal.
the chilled dough rolled out easily with absolutely not sticking. to eliminate the flour, brush off the top of the dough. turn it over onto the baking pan and then brush the flour off the other side-this can be done easily if the dough is chilled since it will not tear and stretch as much.
look at the blue cornmeal flecks in the dough
ready to go into the oven...
a special thanks to our hostesses with the mostesses-truly a job well done!
