I know, you're probably thinking I'm a little off my rocker. I might be. But hang on.
It means that I can only purchase basics, and I have to make do with what I have. It means I have to be more creative and more careful.
And tonight, that meant that I made hamburger buns rather than buying them.
I used this recipe, and believe it or not, I didn't change any of the ingredients. I did let them rise (raise? Where are the grammar police when I need them?) for 30 minutes instead of 10, though.
My tummy was making the strangest sounds, so I had to eat one to make sure they were okay for dinner consumption. The verdict?
And Brad loved them! He said they looked and tasted a lot like the ones he was used to his mom buying - score. In fact, his words as he walked in the kitchen were something to the effect of "Where did you get those rolls? They look like the ones my mom buys." Oh, that made me smile.
