Start around 3 p.m. Combine the warm water, lard, sugar, and salt. Add the dissolved yeast. Mix well.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was a family favorite growing up. My dad would sometimes wake us up by running a warm, yeasty bun under our noses. I remember when John had his first overnight bun, and he, too, realized that buns aren't just for making sandwiches -- at least not these buns!
