Hello, Angela, From Wisconsin.

I just love getting comments like this one:
Hi Rosie... Long time lurker. I love your blog. I had to delurk to tell you that I recently discovered the same sandwich thins this past weekend & I am in LOVE with them. We had burgers as well this past weekend & they were a huge hit. With regular burger buns, I would always scrape out the "guts" of the bun so I could taste meat vs. bread. A true win-win. I have 2 requests for future posts. Stuffed Peppers & Sloppy Joes. Interested to see your variation on 2 classics. Keep up the great work! Angela from WI  
Angela's comment was from my Sometimes You Just Crave A Hamburger Post
And the thins are really good, people.
As Mr. Hawthorne said,
"Satisfaction without the bulk."
So very true.
And Angela, I will do Sloppy Joes and Stuffed Peppers
just for you. 
You'll have to wait until my peppers in the garden start producing
but I will get to work on the Sloppy Joes.
Actually, Mr. Hawthorne is better on the SJ's than I am,
but I promise you,
I'll deliver.
Oh wait, Angela.
I just thought of something.
What about a Sloppy Joe stuffed in a pepper?
MONEY, I tell ya!!!!!
Imonna kill two birds with one stone.
Rosie rubs hands maniacally and grins.
Rosie has a plan!
Thanks, Angela!

Heh, I found those thin sandwich buns yesterday at my local Wally World. After hearing you rave about them, I had to pick up a package.

I also am liking that plan.

I was intrigued by the thin sandwich buns. Arnold's brand out here in Calif is Oroweat. I googled Oroweat sandwich thins and found some blogs where people were saying they were hard to find out here. Someone said they found some in Safeway; so off I went to our local Safeway and found them with no trouble and ON SALE! I bought two packages and can't wait to try them. Thanks for the heads up on these buns, Rosie.--notmuchofacook

My heart just stopped at you not only responding to my post but posting my comment on your blog! I feel like an effing celebrity!!!!! YAY ME!

Can't wait for the sloppy joe/stuffed pepper blog. My sloppy joes are loved by all but are so freaking easy...and are NOT made with that craptastic Manwich in a can BS. No.

Pet the puppies for me! My Shepherd/Bloodhound mutt Weezer sends kisses your way!

Thank you Angela for delurking and posting. I always love a challenge
and hope I can rise to the occasion and offer you something transcendental. Or maybe just some good eats.

Oh, and Angela, please log in to whatever it is you need to do, so I can email you directly. I have questions about shepherd mixes.

Rosie Hawthorne said...

Or, Angela, you could just e-me at
And I could ask you my questions.
