Oh me, Oh my!!

I’ve been in a bit of a cooking slump lately; maybe because of moving or all the illness or because it’s been so dang hot!! My wonderful husband put up the window air conditioners today and that allllllll changed.
I was a brand new woman in the kitchen this afternoon, whipping up a FANTASTIC dinner! Sunday nights are usually our breakfast for dinner, which is one of my favorite type meals to make. They are more fun and are usually gobbled up with no complaints.
Tonight was no exception. Allow me to introduce you to: Breakfast for Dinner.
Fruit Salad! I love, love, LOVE how many fresh fruits are available in the summer! Not to mention, it is a great excuse to visit my very new favorite store: Pete’s Fresh Market!

Scrambled Egg Muffins (allrecipes.com), all with sausage; half with green peppers (for the mama and daddy) and half without (for the pickies). Really good!

The Piece De Resistance! Oh me, Oh my! These cinnamon rolls were some of the best we have ever tasted! Seriously. Forget your diet and look closely at the cinnamon-sugar filled, flaky dough goodness.

And then add the frosting. Wipe your drool away. Ah-MAY-ZING! Ben looked like he’d died and gone to heaven. I had to splash cold water on his face to bring him back. And then I took my own first bite…

You know what my least favorite part of cinnamon rolls is? The ends. Usually there are about 5 cinnamon rolls, one ooey gooey center one that everyone fights over and 4 around the outside with overbaked crispy edges. Blech! Not these, my friend. Every single bite of these was full of goodness. Is your mouth watering yet? Tender, moist, cinnamony, sugary, frosting-y, melt in your mouth goodness.

He fully enjoyed his dinner, as you possibly can tell:) Mr. Blueberry Face in his ham-cheesy glory! He usually talks non-stop during dinner but he barely uttered a word, other than, “More, please!!”

Oh yeah, I’m the big brother! He loved every morsel of dinner, which is rare. He even told me, “Mommy, I really like this dinner. Sometimes I don’t like dinner but tonight I do!” Too bad the cinnamon rolls didn’t have broccoli or carrots in them or I’d make them more often…..

Sis, when you and T come to visit, be prepared for some tasty breakfast!!!

Cinnamon Rolls . I followed the recipe, using my bread machine (I highly recommend having one!!) but as you can see, there is a way to do it by hand, too! It made such a beautiful, easy to handle dough, which is rare. I also reduced the brown sugar in the filling to 3/4 a cup but you could reduce it even more.
Sweet Cinnamon Dreams!!!
