I love bread - I do! It's not helping the fact that I really want to lose weight for the quickly approaching summer. I workout no problem and I'm pretty good at the whole eating in moderation thing. I don't load up on sweets - but I love bread. You know what else I love -I love making bread. I love the feel of the dough. I love the aroma of fresh bread baking in the oven. And what I love most...breaking into a piece of bread right after it comes out of the oven and watching the steam rise and then of course- I love eating bread! I'm pretty good at making bread too - at least I think I am because the kid across the street who mows our lawn has asked for payment in bread instead of cash (he's a good kid so I give him both.)
This time I made some yummy soft dinner rolls. Hubby decided to make some burgers not too long ago and instead of running to the store for buns I decided to make our own. These rolls start off in the bread machine and then finish in the oven. They were so good that I actually made them again later in the week. I use to be so intimidated by bread but I make a loaf or two every week now....enjoy!!
