Colton’s Rolls and the Sunday Night Supper Gang

July 4 031For some reason a couple of years ago my quilter friends Deanna and Joan and I decided we would eat supper out on Sunday night. We ended up choosing Colton’s as our regular place. We text during the day Sunday and end up meeting at 5:30. We hit it off with a waitress there named Melissa and we always asked for her. We usually sit in the same area and enjoy talking to Melissa. She always brings us rolls. The others don’t eat flour much, but I love their rolls.  I usually never eat all they bring, so I ask for a to-go box and take the rolls home. I usually just put them in the freezer and do something with them later. I love cinnamon toast. And the rolls there make the best cinnamon toast. The onlyJuly 4 017July 4 018July 4 031 thing you have to do is slice, butter, sugar cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees until they are crunchy. I usually leave them on a plate  loosely covered. If you wrap them up tight the moisture from the butter makes them soggy. I hate to wast food. They are going to throw them out anyway, so take them home a make a goodie out of them. Oh, I make croutons with garlic and salt. Butter them and have jelly or honey. And at Thanksgiving I even use them in dressing. Melissa isn’t working there any more, so we asked her to meet us there for supper tonight.
