When I envisioned my life I always hoped it would be with someone like Nic. He is everything I hoped he would be and so much more. I didn't even know it was possible to love someone this much. I am so hopelessly in love with him. AND sure am glad he picked me :)
I have heard that in order to be a "good wife" that I need to learn how to make my man homemade rolls. The whole "good wife" thing is a joke of course.
SO... since that title will become official soon I decided to practice.
These days, well really over a year and a half now, we do pretty much everything together.
So we decided to practice making some delicious rolls together :)
Not sure this is the best kind of yeast to use since it was my first time but it never really bubbled like it was supposed to. We weren't sure if we killed it from the water being too hot, or didn't activate it because the water wasn't hot enough. Oh man is it a talent. With the second packet we just decided to go with it.
See how the dough looks a little shiny? My advice... don't use 1/2 olive oil butter.
Our rolls after being kneaded and rolled.
After we let them raise for 3 hours... a.k.a FOREVER
They look a little flat and not like Martha Stewart but hey, edible for the first go-around? I'd say that is a success!!!
Things I would change for next time:
1. Buy more yeast.
2. Use butter that does not have 1/2 olive oil to make it healthier. haha they sort of turned out a little greasier than usual
3. Learn to have more "cooking patience" (I say "cooking" because I actually have a lot of patience for a lot of things, but I haven't ever tried making something that takes close to 4 hours!! usually there are pretty immediate results if you know what I mean :)
While I was home over Spring Break my Dad and Edie decided to give Nic and I are our wedding gift early. They got us a beautiful cherry wood sleigh bed.. it is gorgeous! I can't wait to move it into our new place once we find one.
