She’s on a roll Woman bakes bread for 100 diners


About 100 people enjoyed Christmas dinner last year at Peace United Church of Christ, Elkader. Peace will host the dinner again this Christmas Day.

 

When much of Northeast Iowa settles in on Christmas Eve for a long winter’s nap, Janita Doeppke will be in her “workshop” baking rolls for Christmas Day dinner. It’ll be a long night: About 100 hungry Christmas diners will be expecting her warm, melt-in-your-mouth dinner rolls, and she has no intention of disappointing them.

“They have to be fresh,” the Elkader woman said. “If I made them earlier and froze them, well, it just wouldn’t be the same, would it.”
