Speedy Dinner Rolls

What happens when you discover that you are having two more people at dinner than you planned for?  Well first you make a big salad and hope people eat it.  Next, you add a bread course.  But if all you have is a loaf of white bread, what are you going to do?  Oh yeah, and it’s only 90 minutes before they arrive.  Well, you search the internet for a quick dinner roll recipe and trust that you can pull it off.  The boys declared it a success!  Their girlfriends were at least nice enough to agree to my face.
