Less than ten minutes after pulling today's batch of whole-wheat Parker House rolls out of the oven, nearly half of them were gone.

Since Himself had already eaten dinner (minus rolls), I asked why he had taken so many with him. He replied, "Because I might get hungry. I took a piece of cake for Jake too." He then grabbed another two rolls and said they feed Jake all night at work.

After he left, Laurel woke up from her nap. Hardly ate any stew, but she's on her _third_ roll and just asked for one for her doll. Meep.

Flavored butter sounds delicious. I bought a cinnamon honey spread at the seasonal farmers' market in Evergreen last year (I don't remember the name of the folks that make it, but they're out of Bennett and set up at various farmers' markets all around the Denver area) and it was so good... I think it got left at my parents' though.

I like making bread, I just have to time it around Laurel napping -- she's made several cakes fall in the past few months because the house (a singlewide trailer) has springy floors. She also likes to try and poke the bread while it's rising!

yes. i think this must be why we are our respective sizes (you and i). i will eat 6 rolls at once, and then go back for more.

Well, my stomach just can't hold that much in one sitting -- I'm used to eating a bunch of little meals during the day. (According to my mom, I've always been that way. I imagine it gave her fits when I was a little burrito and everyone else ate on a regular 3-meals-a-day schedule. Well, my little brother is always eating too, but we think he's got a hollow leg.)

So far tonight I've had 4.5 rolls (split the last one with Laurel) and Robert e-mailed me from work to say I should make more. Heh, as long as we've got enough ingredients (mostly I'm concerned about milk and egg consumption; we have all the other ingredients in spades) I have no problem starting bread every day when Laurel goes down for her nap. Any reason to use my mixer is a good one!

Random: did you just want me to send shoes and socks or hand-me-down clothes (some unworn) too? I've got the box I planned filled and still have a fair amount of 12-18 month-sized clothes not in the box... I'm fine with sending two boxes, one this payday (with the Shells 'n Cheese, seasoning, and socks/shoes for your midget) and another in a few weeks with clothes for her.

oh, clothes are always welcome. i'm just about to remove all the 6-9 month clothes from her closet. we have a fair amount of 12 months things, but she'll be in them for a while, and we're really low on anything bigger than that. thanks so much!
