It was a good day for my walk with Abbey yesterday with he winds gone but it looks like they may be back today.
I stopped and talked with a neighbor down the street where for sale had popped up. He said it was getting too hard too keep up with the yard maintenance and him and his wife are moving to an apartment.
It will be hard for him. As a younger man he was a heavy equipment operator and now him and his son are back yard mechanics. On my walk with Abbey I often hear them working on a car in the his garage. it will be long days for him without a garage to tinker in.
Yesterday the bakery produced more cinnamon buns. I can't find a recipe that make the light lighter buns I want and always end up with biscuit like bun and not the the bread like texture I want.

Just a note: frozen bread dough is also great for making pizza crusts with and you add your own fillings...a little tomato sauce, your cheese and other goodies including bacon, ham, etc or you can make a Sweet Pizza by using little marshmallows, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, cherries etc as toppings then bake....personally I like sliced apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, chopped walnuts with carmel drizzled over them....hee heee heee

Hi, I just wandered in here. If you don't want biscuit type rolls, try a recipe with yeast. The yeast rising will make the difference. Betty Crocker should have some recipes on line.
