This isn't exactly what I had planned for you today, dear readers. Oh, but the stress is building this week. The end of this semester in particular is really piling up, so I'm working hard to get things accomplished in the small windows I have to do them. Being a student parent is proving to be difficult right now. Honestly, it isn't always that way. In fact, most of the time, I feel like having school is a great outlet for me to spend my time feeling smart. Stay-at-home moms don't always get that kind of validation. ;) The hardest part for me this semester has really been the transition between school time and home time. When I am driving home from school, my brain's wheels get turning and by the time I get home, it's full. But then I have to make a transition into being mommy again. So it's been hard as of late. But don't get me wrong- I am so grateful both to have my little babies and to have the opportunity to finish my degree.
So. Brioche buns.
I made these a couple of years ago and they did not turn out. And then I left them on the counter for a couple of days and they were.. not good.
But. This recipe has glowing reviews and I needed to try again.
I followed the directions to the tee and they turned out PERFECT this time.
Our freezer will definitely be stocked for grill-outs this summer.
