So, next week is the first Revival my husband is in charge of at a church. Naturally, this requires a lot of planning and work; especially this week as we're finishing up all of the last minute details. I got home from work around 2:30 with papers to grade, church members to contact, a house to clean, lesson plans to study... So, I did what everyone would do in that situation, and decided to take my first stab at making hot rolls from scratch! (That's what you do when you have a lot of stuff to do, right?) I also decided to roast/bake a chicken for dinner!
It turns out that making bread is not as difficult as I originally thought it would be. It is just as if not more time consuming than expected. I got the recipe off of the internet - it's pretty sweet (has an entire cup of sugar in it!) and a little denser than I normally like my rolls; so I didn't include the link.
Here's a picture of my bread dough rising on my stove.
Meanwhile...I roasted my chicken.
And, the finished product of the rolls. I made 64. Yeah...there are only two humans in my household. That's 32 rolls a piece. Looks like I'm going to take some food to church members this week!
I have absolutely no idea if there is a point to this post, other than I'm proud of my stab at being domestic tonight!
