It’s a very sad day on the Clark house for the little ones. Today we discovered that our oldest chicken, Chocolate, passed away last night. She is the first chicken we have lost so the kids are taking it a little hard.
Chocolate had been slowing down lately. I had noticed she didn’t come running with her sisters when we took out treats and food the past few weeks. I was hoping her days were not coming to an end, but gave her lots of extra attention just in case. I’m so glad I did.
We love our chickens and give them the very best life we know how to. They free range daily, are spoiled with lots of hugs and treats. They are truly pets and Chocolate will be very missed.
So, today’s blog post isn’t going quite as planned due to the sad start to our day. However, there is a recipe I have to share because it is a favorite in our house and a recipe that I use for a lot of foods in our house. It is my dinner roll recipe.
My dinner rolls are a favorite during the holidays and always requested. However, they are great for more than just that. They make great sandwich or hamburger buns. They also taste delicious stuffed with all sorts of different fillings. So, clearly this is a recipe I must share first before sharing all of our favorite ways to eat them.
Bread Machine Dinner Rolls
What you will need:
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup honey
3 cups AP flour
3 tsp yeast
Put all ingredients into your bread machine. Use the dough cycle. Once finished, cut into 16 pieces. Put in a greased 9×13 inch pan. Let rise until doubled – about 40 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Until gold brown. Remove from pan and allow to cool on cooling rack.
I do need to add that all of my bread and dough recipes are made using my bread machine. I use this thing almost every day. Anyways, this means I don’t know how to make them without my bread machine. If you don’t own one, I do know rise times, etc. when making dough. I’m sorry about that.
