Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

I had my first official, “Oh My Gosh….I’m Old!” moment. It occurred last week and I’ve never been the same since.
My 15 year old daughter received her learner’s permit and I had the privilege of taking her out driving for the first time. There I sat, trying not to let the fear show on my face, and it hit me. I’m old! There is nothing like having your own child drive you around town to make that reality hit you across the face.
Since I have a newborn baby, I still think of myself as a “Young Mom” but my husband is always quick to point out that there is a big difference between a “Young Mom” and a mother of young children. Thanks sweetie…
Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

Since I’m so old, I better start thinking like an old person, right? Old people are always looking for more fiber, so these rolls fit the bill. Even though they are healthy, they are outstanding. Dense and moist….but not quite as healthy once I slather on the butter. Oh well!

For these hearty rolls, I use a double batch of my Oatmeal Sandwich Bread recipe, form it into 35 rolls and bake them for 20 minutes at the same temperature. Maybe getting old isn’t too horrible if it’s an excuse to eat these more often…..

Love this, Carole! You will always be a hip, YOUNG mom to me because we are friends! I refuse to grow older! We’ll see what my body says about that…hmmm. Meanwhile, good luck with a new driver in the house! Weird!! Time does fly so quickly! Before you know it, I’ll be posting about my little one driving me around!

You make me laugh Carole. I know the driving situation all too well and it really does hit like a ton of bricks doesn’t it? And it’s amazing how you can go from calm to screaming stop at the top of your lungs in 2 seconds. We will get through this…keep telling yourself that and I will too. By the time Ben and Sam drive we will be pros. Love the recipe…made some this week.
