"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
My grandma used the same basic recipe for her Dinner Rolls also. After letting them rise overnight she would punch them down and form into buns, placing them into a greased pan....letting them raise 1 1/2 to 2 hours then bake at same temp and for same amount of time
