Nancy, am so glad you are out of hospital, hope the fall is not a big set-back. Do please put a comforter or two or sleeping bags at bedside to protect you if it should happen again. You are possibly rolling around trying to escape pain while asleep, so could repeat. None of us want that to happen.

Marilyn's Roll Recipes
Sharon's oatmeal collection reminded me how hungry I am for these rolls; don't think of them much in hot weather but with cooler mornings and Sharon's list, they popped into mind.

3 Way Oatmeal Rolls Recipe

#1: Dinner Rolls

1 c. water
1 1/2 T. butter or margarine
1/2 c. Quick Oats (but NOT instant)
1/2 T. white sugar
1/4 c. warm (about 100º) water
2 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast
3 T. packed brown sugar
2 1/8 c. bread flour....and very possibly quite a bit more, you need it to handle them
3/4 tsp. salt

Bring the 1 c. water & the butter to a boil; add oats & cook 1 minute, no more, stirring continously; set off heat to cool to 110º; about 20 minutes. In a measuring cup, mix the warm 1/4 c. water, the white sugar, & yeast; let stand 5 minutes. Pour cooled oat mixture into bread pan, then the yeast mixture; add brown sugar, flour, & salt.

Process on Quick Dough cycle. At end of cycle, without lifting the lid, let rise 35 to 45 minutes more. Turn out onto a very heavily floured board; knock down very slightly and do not knead. Cut & form into 16 balls & put into a lightly greased 9" round pan, 11 around the out-er row & 5 in the center. Sprinkle with raw oatmeal, cover with wax paper; raise 35 minutes or till doubled. Bake at 375º 15 - 18 minutes, no more or you'll lose the wonderful moist quality of these rolls.

They should be a golden brown. Cool on a rack.
Makes 16.


#2: Herb Cloverleaf Rolls Recipe

Make the same dough, adding 1 to 3 T. Parmesan cheese if you like it.* Can be omitted altogether.

While dough rises in the machine, melt 3 T. margarine in a soup plate; & mix, on a paper plate, 1 tsp. minced chives, 1/2 tsp. dried basil, & 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary.* The cheese can be added here, to the herbs, instead of being incorporated into the dough, if you prefer. Knock down as above; cut into 12 pieces, then divide each of these into 3 small balls. Dip into margarine, then into herbs, and drop 3 balls into each of 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Cover & raise as above.. Bake at 375º for 25 - 28 minutes; cool on a rack.
Makes 12.


#3: Glazed Sweet Rolls Recipe

Make dough & turn out as above; turn & pat in a bit more flour till you are able to roll it out into a 16" by

12" rectangle.

Brush with:
3 T. melted butter or margarine

Sprinkle with:
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Scatter on:
1/4 c. chopped pecans

Roll up from the long side. Cut into 16 slices. Put into a lightly greased 9" x 13" pan, cover with wax paper, and let rise in a warm place till doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375º for 20 - 25 minutes, till golden brown.

Meanwhile, make a glaze of:
1/2 c. powdered sugar, sifted or sieved
2 tsp. milk
1/8 tsp. vanilla

Drizzle over the warm rolls after they come from the oven. Cool in and serve from their pan. Makes 16.

Notes for all:
Can chill overnight after second rising; let stand at room temp. 30 minutes, then bake.

OR freeze after second rising; thaw overnite in 'fridge, let stand & bake as for chilled rolls.

ALSO freeze after baking quite well; re-heat in foil at 350º for about 20 minutes straight from freezer.

I went to the kidney doctor early this morning. I did not damage my kidney in the fall. He gave me great news and told me the kidney was doing well.

Someone mentioned to me that the best way to keep from falling out of the bed is to put pool noodles under the bottom sheet or mattress cover. It will help alert you to the edge of the bed.

On my way to the doctor I saw a grandpa in a pickup pull out ahead of me. He was an old man that one might estimate his age as older than dirt. He was a smaller frame man that was wearing a great big cowboy hat. His approach to the street was slow and careful but once he got on the street he picked up his speed and was going faster than most cars around him. I slowed down to watch where he was going in such a rush. I was amused when this cowboy grandpa pulled in to Starbucks. I guess it doesn't matter what age you are .. you need your morning coffee.
