I am not a bread person either. Something about letting the bread rise, kneading, etc. Why don't you make biscuits? You can make them ahead of time and just warm them just before dinner. This recipe was originally submitted by PA Baker.

Cheddar Scallion Drop Biscuits

2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp sugar
tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
6 Tbsp (3/4 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
6 oz cheddar, coarsely grated (1 c)
3 scallions, finely chopped
1 c well-shaken buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450F.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, then blend in butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheddar and scallions. Add buttermilk and stir until just combined.

Drop dough in 12 equal mounds about 2 apart onto a buttered large baking sheet (I use a parchment-lined sheet). Bake in middle of oven until golden, 18-20 minutes.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
