fresh baked dinner rolls!

Who doesn't love the smell of baking bread....?

It is absolutely one of my favorite things in the whole world!

And, I love fresh baked dinner rolls.

Whenever I have them...which isn't that often...I tend to over-do.

I have one roll with real butter melted all over each half.

I have another roll

with real butter and real chokecherry or elderberry jelly heaped up on each half.

Later, for a midnight snack, I have yet another roll with butter and jelly....

yes, I do LOVE my fresh baked dinner rolls!

Maybe a little TOO much...

It's a good thing I don't have them too often!
