A Moment of Joy

 You never know when something will happen that will surprise and delight you.

As I was walking through the parking lot, on my way to get groceries.  I smiled at a woman loading her car with hanging baskets of wilted petunias.

Just as I passed her, she called out to me.  I turned to see her waving me back toward her. 
Not sure what she needed, I walked back over.

Smiling, she said something in Spanish and handed me one of the baskets.  

I understood enough that there were no more, and this was for me.  She said "agua" and then motioned big growth.  

Her daughter watched us as we tried to communicate.

It was a moment of pure joy.

Soft Sourdough Bread Rolls

My little Poquito is 2 years old and going strong but during summer I have to adjust my baking schedule so I can still make delicious bread but not heat up the whole house.

With just a few simple ingredients (starter, milk, butter, flour and salt) these soft pull-apart bread rolls are simple and delicious.  

I just mix the dough before bed, let rise overnight and bake in the morning.
