Pounds of strawberries from a local orchard – gift from a friend

I normally shop at Harris Teeter every week, but since they are running a 3-day Double Dollar Coupon event starting on Sunday, I decided I will wait until Monday to do my Harris Teeter shopping for this week. I will include a picture of it on next week’s post.

    Can you share the homemade hot dog buns recipe? Thanks!

    • Brigette says:

      I just use the recipe for Easy Whole Wheat Bread on this site. I use a mixture of half white/half whole wheat flour. I shape the dough into long bun shapes and flatten before letting them rise on a cookie sheet. Then bake for 11-13 minutes.
