What a wonderful looking menu...and I use the same one hour french bread recipe for making pizza dough...cinnamon buns...hamburger buns...etc. It is the cheapest recipe I have ever used.

Donna, I meant to drop by and talk crock pot lids. As usual, I'm running a bit behind :>) I was thinking the same thing about my big oval crockpot... Though I just realized I've been thrifting those divided bowls lately for my MIL - have you seen them? It's basically a (typically) shallow oval bowl, with a divider down the middle. Of course, the hard part would be matching up the ovals! :>)

Thank you Lenetta.
I'm not quite sure I have, but I will certainly be looking now :-)
