Yeast has a hold on me!
It makes me feel like a failure!
But I try to overcome my fear and occasional try something with yeast in it. After all, I keep a fresh jar of yeast in my refrig. just for the instances when I get an urge to try and conquer the dreaded yeast recipe!
I read The Pioneer Woman's recipe for cinnamon rolls . . . and I thought to myself, "I can do this!"
I thought that the other day . . .
I thought it the day after that . . .
I thought it yesterday . . .
. . .and today I gave in!
I made cinnamon rolls from scratch! I made nearly 5 dozen rolls and I think they're pretty darn yummy! I wasn't even afraid of the yeast!
It took all day -- well, sort of -- but it was worth it!
Guess what I did!
The Mr. was gone again tonight, so I poured 3 ice cold cups of milk, got 3 forks, and the "runt" pan of the cinnamon rolls that were still warm and flowing with yummy icing, and I sat that pan in the middle of the kid's table and we ate cinnamon rolls for dinner while we watched an old episode of The Cosby's!
|. . .and this made us smile!|
Life is good and I'm a cool mom!
