    If so, could I pay you to send me some? You cannot get a great poppy seed bun expressly for hot dogs out here. You can get sub roll sized ones, but nothing smaller. If they come rotten/molded/folded/spindled/mutilated/smeared in shit, I will not pay.

    Hai Bob. We have 0.0 poppy seed buns of any kind in this hellhole. I did recently find some pretzel rolls that I'm pretty psyched about :yay:

    If I eat bread, it must be whole wheat.

    I am not a bread baker. Every time I have tried to make my own bread it turns out smelling and looking like a sock! I can do almost anything else but not raised bread.

    i prefer the new england style buns, less bread & its what i grew up on, plus they dont split at the bottom when you load em up.

    When we go to California this Christmas, we are stopping at Portillo's in Buena Park. That's my favorite place to get a Chicago dog and it's the only Portillo's outside of Illinois, I think.

    I usually get the ones from a company called European Bakers. They are pretty decent.

    Not able to get much of anything since the storm hit though. I had to buy prepackaged bagels this morning. : oy:

    Yaz. They just started offering them and I hope it doesn't do away quickly.

    I tried over a year to get a Sourdough starter going, with only truckloads of "fail" and trashcans full of dead dough to show for it.... I guess I could order some, but I'd probably kill it within a few days....

    Sonic has been selling something very similar that is not too shabby.

    Yep, I've been there but not in a couple of years. Did they have buns?

    I didn't think the storm was as bad as it actually was! One of my mom's friends' kids is an insurance adjuster and he sent us all some photos of this boat that ended up in someone's yard and there was all of this broken stuff underneath it.

    I should send you something Arizona-y like Cactus Candy if you can send them, then!
