Our 4th of July Feast

Well, this post is a little late, but I thought I’d share it anyway. We ended up just hanging out at home on the 4th this year. It was a nice relaxing day. I figured we should still eat 4th of July food, even though we weren’t going anywhere, but we didn’t have any hot dog buns! I decided that if I could tackle making bread successfully, I could make buns too. It was pretty much the same as making bread, but I just made the dough into bun shaped mounds instead of putting it in a loaf pan.

Here I am fixing the mounds all up to bake:


And a close-up shot of the bun making action:

I even made some tasty potato salad to eat with the hot dogs:


Oh look! The buns are ready!


Yummy!


The buns actually ended up being larger than I expected, so next time I make them, I will keep that in mind and make them smaller. Haha It sure was a tasty meal, though! Later on in the evening, we sat out on the back porch and watched the fireworks show put on by the city to the south of us. We had a nice clear view of them. All in all a really nice 4th!

  1. When I first heard you were making hot dog buns, I thought "gee Heather, they're like 88 cents a package", but then I thought "I'll bet the homemade ones are fresh, yeasty and yummy"! Sounds good…when are you gonna share your samples of bread baking??

  2. This is making me hungry!!

  3. I am so impressed that you actually make your own hotdog buns! (They look so good!)

    Do you make the ketchup, too?

  4. Mmmmmmm…. they really look yummy!
    I want one! ROFL
