Christopher supervised. He's a really good supervisor.
Her recipe is different than what I grew up on, the ones my mom made regularly. I barely remember not having fresh cinnamon buns in the house. My mom made them all the time. I have very strong, fond memories of making cinnamon buns with my mom, spreading that softened butter all over the dough with our hands, and spreading brown sugar and cinnamon everywhere. My mom knew us kids loved the soft parts of the cinnamon buns best, and weren't fans of the crusty outside, so she put a rim of dough around the pan, before placing the cinnamon buns in, so that should could discard the crust, and leave us with only the soft buns. She's amazing.
Next time, I'm making her recipe. I think I've almost been intimidated to do it. I want them to be as good as hers. Anyway, I made Pioneer Woman's recipe, with a maple, coffee glaze.
I don't think there is such a thing as a bad cinnamon roll.Even the crusty ones are better than no cinnamon rolls.
After our morning of baking, we settled on the couch and I finally watched Star Wars Episode 4, for the first time. We had attempted this a while back, but I fell asleep. Yesterday, I watched it. We sat up and ate some snacks - smoked oysters, and smoked salmon.
Between today, and tomorrow we're going to watch Episode 5 and 6, so that eventually (when the lines die down), we can go to Episode 7 in the theatre.
For dinner, we wanted to start the year out right, so we had bee bim bop.
And because New Years day fell on a Friday, we're pretty pumped that we now get to enjoy a weekend before we're both back to work.
Were you off on New Years Day? How did you spend it?
