Praying for my buns
My morning started with an egg-catastrophe. I was whippin' up some eggs and sausage for the littles when a giant bug landed in the middle of the eggs. I tried to scoop it out but bits of it only got stirred into the eggs. YUCK! Being the sanitary mom that I am, I dumped the eggs and started again, using the remaining farm eggs in our fridge.
Then I ran 4 miles in the rain. The rain and I seem to have a thing lately. I braved the trail and only saw one other person...creepy.
Burgers were on the menu for dinner so while the kids napped, I started on making the buns. We are firm believers that homemade buns make any hamburger 10 trillion times better. We use this recipe...which of course calls for 1 egg! Big. fat. sigh. But thank you to Jesus, Pinterest and a college degree, buns were still made. I researched some egg substitution ideas and found mayonaise as an option. 1 egg=2 Tbsp of mayo. Did I have mayo? Yes. But only 2 Tbsp total and I needed those tablespoons to put on my buns! So I turned to pinterest and found a Pin for plain Greek yogurt substitutes. Bottom line, I put 2 Tbsp Greek yogurt in my buns instead of 1 egg and prayed really hard through the whole process that they would be edible.
They were so moist and super yummy! Hubs even raved about them, which says a lot because he is the bread master.
Praise the Lord for a successful dinner!
