OK I caved in and decided not to braid the small rolls. |
My wife rolled them into ball shapes - now rising. I will egg wash then snip little "x's" on the tops and sprinkle a mixture of poppy seeds, sesame, etc....on top.
Bake at 350 deg.
Then to help her with potatoes. Well I can watch. She has already washed, peeled, and cut them up. Soaking in salt water with 5 cloves of garlic. Soon to be cooked.
She is way more organized, efficient than I am.

And Moe, you always have to root for the team in your conference. That way, when they win, it moves your team up one notch. |
Unless it is Alabama. Then you must go for the other team. But we don't have to deal with that this year.
Of course there are times when it seems like whatever team I am for is going to lose. I'll turn off the TV in disgust when my team starts getting squashed (fair weather fan I am) and then turn it back on later just to check....lo and behold, my team is winning again! So I keep watching, and they immediately go downhill and lose.

|melbrod||I had someone order a high end set of golf clubs on my card once. They had them shipped to Hawaii, though...no problem convincing the credit card company that it was not my order.|

I am constantly dealing with credit and bank fraud. I am debating about going to the police this week about a check that was written on my business account...i am not sure if they will do anything to her and it will take time from my day. |
I had someone open bank account in my name a few years back , it was a fairly big deal since they were using a service with the post office that would hold your mail and allow someone to physically go to the post pick out mail they wanted and send the rest to the address. You would not be aware that your mail was being messed with since the criminal was picking out any correspondence that for their fraud. They would build confidence with the bank with small purchases and then go full out on money spending. We caught it when one piece of mail got through and shut it down as it was ramping up. It was a big deal and we were on the local news due to this unique way of fraud.
Early on in married life someone had opened a credit card in my name in Jacksonville, its purchases were be done high-end womens fashion stores. My girl thought i had a little honey that i was taking care of on the side... she was not happy with me for a days
These frauds and others have never cost me any money but plenty of time and aggravation.

Morning all! |
Marathon sewing yesterday...I think I sewed 11 coats? Also managed to get the dogs out for a walk, did a little training with them to entertain them (just a bit of conditioning on their Fitbones, tricks, etc). They were really good all day - I so appreciate this stage of life when they can hang out with me for 7 hours of sewing! Sypha's in the midst of being holtered, too.
Today I'm having coffee (maybe brunch) with my mom, sewing a little more, and then just relaxing. The long sewing day took a bit of a toll...I'm tired!
We're in for a more snow starting late tonight - supposed to get 3-6 inches. Tomorrow's commute is supposed to be nasty. Tuesday the temps drop to COLD. Very cold. Yuck.

So Done with first stage of roll making. |
Made the starter (30 minutes) - yeast water and flour
4 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
4 tbs honey
1.5 sticks butter
Kneaded for almost 30 minutes - I do not have a stand mixer capable of that type of dough. I typically let time take care of kneading. So my arms / shoulders are tired.
Rising for an hour - then divide into 24 equal pieces and roll out to 16" or so and then make a braided roll
Rise again until puffy
Ok Doc - maybe going to the grocery store is best!
It is like

Hurry up and give me ideas before he starts moving around.

When you compose an extremely long post, like many of yours are, before hitting "Preview Post" or "Submit Reply" buttons, Copy all the post text to your clipboard. That way, if server is acting up and doesn't post reply properly, you haven't lost your text. You can then recompose reply by simply pasting your saved text back in text box! You can also paste this into a draft word doc as backup.
Another thing that works when posting gets bogged down or returns an error is to use Browser Back Arrow, which will take you back to the compose page. Then I would definitely copy and paste into word or text doc to save until issue resolved.
It's happened to me many times on Customer Service email pages where one has to type in long messages. Now, I always copy to clipboard before submitting, just in case.

- one that has the usual PapaBeau twists & turns, but always take on a positive Beau outcome
Now this other story, was practically - to good to be true.
- our mattress was old, and we both complained about it...except the dog, of coarse
- so Larry does his superb research & order a Canadian made foam mattress, so no China foam gases
- lady on phone, kept screwing up my address & postal code (a number of times)...dyslexic or just plain stupid
- next she took down my credit card #, for payment
- because I've been bank fraud before, credit card company put a hold on $950 purchase
- 30 minutes later Beau and Kelly at the vets, and mattress sales desk call me back, for my credit card # again
- transaction won't go through
So I call the 1-888 card number, and can't reset my card because I had earlier cancelled my land line phone #, so a security problem.
- now I have to drive to the bank, and get a manager to call corporate & fix my card
- the mattress lady, never called me back for payment
- and the $950 mattress, was delivered the very next day.
Like I said, the dyslexic or just plain stupid sales agent, sent me a Free mattress...without payment.
- now this is called PapaBear Economics, at the finest

Now in LaDi's and SP's own minds, they're still 24, (and man hungry). I have no idea how old AJ is, or even what he looks like, just his feet?
