21: Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl turning to grease all over. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in bulk (about 1 hour). Punch down dough. Let dough rest for 5 minutes. Divide dough into 12 equal sections (6 and 6).

Check the bar-b-q to ensure the fish is not burning or that the butter has spilled over. The fish will have a white foam all over, this usually indicates the fish is almost cooked. You want the fish to have a light pink color throughout to ensure it's cooked all the way through. Test with a fork on the thickest part of the fish. Before removing the fish from the bar-b-q, place onto a cookie sheet to transfer to the kitchen. | 25

34: Ingredients: Rib roast (3 to 4 ribs) Salt Pepper Garlic Plus seasoning 3 to 4 large slices of onion Roasting pan Water | Place rib roast in roasting pan. Ribs should be facing sideways. The fatty side of the roast should be facing upwards. Salt, Pepper, Garlic Plus or any other seasoning you prefer can now go onto the fatty side of the roast. Place the onion slices on top of all the seasonings. | Roast Beef | 34

35: Add a small amount of water to the pan, do not immerse your roast in water (the water should not even cover the bottom of the pan). Place the lid onto the roasting pan and place into oven. Check the roast once every hour, if the water has completely dried up, add a small amount of water. Roast at 2 lbs an hour at 350 degrees. This will cook your roast so that the middle of the roast will be pink (medium rare to medium). Take roaster pan out of the oven; take the roast out of the pan and place onto a cutting board. Let sit for 10 minutes before carving. Use the juices for gravy if desired. | 35

37: Lay 1 slab of rouladen on clean counter. Add bacon, pickles, onion slices, spread both mustards and spices onto rouladen. Repeat with all rouldaden pieces. Roll up and insert toothpicks making sure all is intact. Add butter to frying pan on high heat. When butter is melted, add rouladen and cook over medium-high heat getting both sides of rouladen to a nice brown color. Add powdered beef stock. Turn down heat to medium and cook approximately 10 minutes. Remove rouladen and place in covered casserole dish. Make gravy with drippings if desired. | 37

38: Turkey Stuffing | Ingredients: 1 bag of bread crumbs 1 Tbsp Pepper 1/2 large onion (chopped) 2 eggs 2 celery sticks (chopped) Hot Water 1 Tbsp Sage/ Poultry S (Optional: add chopped carrots, whole cranberries, raisins or chopped almonds) Boil a kettle of water. Pour bread crumbs into a large bowl for mixing. Add onions, celery, 2 eggs, and seasonings to the bread crumbs. Mix together boiling water and some cold water into a measuring cup.

40: Turkey | Ingredients: Turkey Rectangular tin foil pan Poultry Seasoning Balking Sheet Pepper Rinse the turkey thoroughly, remove fat or giblets win turkey cavity. Dry the turkey thoroughly. Sprinkle poultry and pepper seasoning inside the turkey cavity. Stuff Turkey with stuffing. Place tin foil pan on the baking sheet before you put turkey in tin foil pan. Put no less than 1 inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle poultry seasoning and pepper on top of the turkey. Place the giblets in the water in the bottom of the tin foil pan. The neck of the turkey can be placed on the base of the legs to cover the stuffing. Cover with entire turkey with tin foil. ** Baste every 30 minutes ** | 40

41: For every 3 lbs the turkey weighs, bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees. Always maintain at least 1 inch of water in the bottom of the tin foil pan. Add water if needed. If by chance, there is more than 2 inches of water/turkey juices, you may want to remove some of the excess. Reserve the excess juices for gravy. You can remove the tin foil for the last 30 minutes of cooking to brown the turkey if desired. When the turkey is fully cooked, take out of the oven. Reserve the excess juices for gravy in a bowl. Approximately 10 minutes later, the turkey fat and the turkey juice will separate in the bowl (the fat floats to the top of the bowl). Remove this fat immediately with the turkey baster as this fat will not be used in the gravy process. Keep the remaining juices to make gravy. Remove all stuffing from the turkey and place into a serving bowl. Carve the turkey. | 41
