Assorted rolls, for Thanksgiving

Three types of rolls for Thanksgiving. One was a dark Russian rye, the closest thing to pumpernickel that I could realistically make, since I can't seem to find pumpernickel flour in this town. It came out a little sweeter than I expected, but pretty nice. Another was potato buttermilk bread, which felt very experimental as I wound up doing all sorts of math on the recipe to substitute actual potato for potato flour, which meant I had to use powdered buttermilk, which is what I had anyways, so it worked out. And it tasted fine too. And the third was an Italian cheese roll, because the Thanksgiving host wanted something cheesy. I haven't tried that one yet.

It was a busy day of cooking!

I have another party to go to on Saturday, but happily I have plenty of rolls (somehow 8 people didn't go through all 33 rolls).
