{Post #871} A Good Lunch


A good lunch is a treat.  And a rarity.  But today is an exception.

I made my whole wheat French rolls, but shaped them into Kaiser rolls.  I watched this video ages ago and have made dinner rolls this way several times, but never with this dough recipe.  Here is the URL for the video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tU9I1nYS60E&feature=related.  The video is evidently done by a very young man and is shaky, so take your Dramamine and watch it.

Here are my rolls before and after rising...



They're in the oven now, so I'll take a picture when they come out.  Here it is...


Yes, I would love to slather these with butter.  But regularly hearing of folks who are suffering from heart problems, diabetes, etc., makes butter a rare treat.  Even if Jesus ate it (Isaiah 7:15). 

Let's just say I've gotten a whole lot more enthusiasm for lunch today than we usually have.  Who can resist healthy homemade bread?
