Appetizer

When you travel, which mode of transportation do you prefer?

I don’t travel a whole lot… I think planes are fastest which is always good, but my car is pretty comfy so I would have to pick my car (which isn’t really a ‘car,’ it is a honkin’ big Suburban and I know this isn’t considered environmentally friendly… but, I have a really good excuse! I had to up size to accommodate Izzy’s stroller and carseat and I have four kids who are all very tall like me!). Also, seat warmers rock. From just chilly days to cramps to achy back from shopping or running around (or lifting huge strollers into the car!) .

Soup

Have you ever met a blogging friend in person?

No. Not technically. I know a couple of the friends I do blog with. I met one person at a ladies retreat who was speaking and there was a person who flew in that had only met her on the blog world. But, I had not known of her blog until after the retreat so I met her first. I would love to meet some of my blog friends face to face.

Salad

When was the last time you were really, really tired?

Uh, does now count? I do not want to whine, hate whining! but… since you asked… I am really tired this week. I think it is just all the appointments catching up with me. I feel unorganized and behind. All I want to do is crawl in my bed and sleep for days (which is not a possibility).

Main Course

If you could have dinner with any one fictional character from a book or movie, who would it be?

Father Tim. I love the Mitford series and if I could I would plop myself right in the middle of Mitford and eat dinner with Father Tim & Cynthia. Their menu always sounds so wonderful and cozy.

Dessert

Fill in the blank: One day, I hope to see _______________.

This is a no-brainer :o) . Jesus of course! That would also include Heaven & God! I hope and plan to see all of those things some day! In the more immediate future I hope to see Izzy healed and running around walking and talking.

Favorite Ingredient Friday ~ Easter Edition ~Hot Rolls!

Friday, April 6th, 2007

Mom’s Hot Rolls
(ssh… don’t tell her I told you!)

1.5 cups warm water (not hot, not cold… warm!)
1/3 c. oil
1/4 c. sugar
1.5 t. salt
1.5 T. yeast (2 pkgs.)

3-4 c. bread flour

stir together first 5 ingredients, let yeast dissolve. Slowly add flour, one cup at a time until you have a ball of dough you can work with.
Powder your working surface and knead the dough. (The best way I can describe this is that you push it flat with your palms and then fold it over and repeat.)
Set the dough in a warm spot to rise until it doubles in size.
Push the dough back down, shape small balls and place them beside each other in pan or dish. Let them rise again until doubled.
Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 3o minutes or until golden brown.
Brush with melted butter and enjoy.
