Soaked White Whole Wheat Yeast Buns/Rolls

What's Cookin'?

I tweaked this recipe and it worked!  Dd specifically requested yeast rolls for some apple/ground meat patties I was making.  I wanted it soaked but I wanted it to be yeast rolls.  I only had one egg in the house so I just left it out of the recipe and hoped for the best - it did fine without the egg.  


2 C White whole wheat flour
3/4 C liquid [1/4 or more whey] [I used about 2/3 C whey because I had a quart on-hand from my last
                batch of yogurt that I've been drinking (for glutathione production) and the rest I made up with 
                water][If I didn't have whey I would add about a tablespoon of yogurt to the water to make 3/4]
2 Tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil (my CO is liquid at room temp right now in the summer)
1 teaspoon Real Salt (this link has free shipping)
3 teaspoons Yeast
2 Tablespoons Raw honey (local)
1/2 C (approx.) unbleached all-purpose flour (for sprinkling in while kneading)


The night before, mix the white whole wheat flour, liquid, and butter/oil into a ball.  Cover it with a damp cloth.

The next morning add the other ingredients (except the all-purpose flour).  After it is well mixed, flour your surface with the all-purpose flour and begin kneading, adding more flour as it gets sticky.  Knead for about 6 minutes.  Let rest, covered with a damp cloth, for 10 minutes.

Shape into buns and put on a greased baking pan/sheet.  Let rise until double in size (I stick it in my cold oven or if I'm in a hurry I turn the oven light on).  Bake at 350F for about 20-25 minutes (depends on your oven - mine cooks slower).

The first time I made 20 very small buns for my tiny patties (I'm getting 3 meals out of those patties from one pound of beef).  Today I'm making 8 buns so they should be more like hamburger-size buns.  As I was kneading it this morning I realized that I was pouring my multitude of worries into it and made a conscious switch to spend that time kneading thinking about positive things in my life, being grateful, and meditating on God's loving Divine Mercy.  It totally changed my day around.

I personally hope to join Homeschool Connections this year but the prospects are slim.  It's $30/month for the whole family with no obligation for the pre-recorded classes:

This site has free study guides.  With high school lit I'm having more success searching for "study guides" than "lesson plans."  I'm currently pre-viewing To Kill a Mockingbird for their American Lit and found this:

What else?

Here is a movie review for a movie I would love to go see.  It's about the Cristero rebellion during the horrific persecution of Catholics in Mexico.
