Charles and I stayed glued to the Olympics all the time that they were on. We enjoyed them very much. We appreciated the attitude and good sportsmanship by most of the participants. It is really great to see young people that know how to be respectful.
Since the Olympics were in China, I looked for something appropriate, but while checking my recipes, I came across these hot rolls by Marietta Joplling, and being a nut for bread that was as far as I got.
• 2 cups warm water
• 2 packages dry yeast
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 2 teaspoons salt
• 1/4 cup shortening
• 1 egg
• 6 1/2-7 1/2 cups flour
Measure water into large mixing bowl. Add yeast and stir until dissolved. Add sugar, salt, shortening and egg. Work in flour gradually. Put in large greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth.
Put in refrigerator and leave overnight.
Shape into rolls, place in greased pan and let rise for two hours.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes at 400 degrees.
Short, but Sound Gooder’n Syrup. Von
