It’s December. Dang. No more “No Shave November” huh? Well I’ve got a full beard, so I’ll just trim it down I guess. If I didn’t have my beard, I look 14. Maybe that’s a good thing? It’s December and that means it’s officially X-Mas music 24/7 time.
I myself am a Nat King Cole “Christmas Song” guy, I can listen that song multiple times a day. That and Mariah’s “All I want for Christmas is you”. I’m already in the Holiday spirit after that. So what does x-mas music and shaving have to do with cinnamon rolls?
I just figured I’d babled a bit. Did it work?
Anyways I ended up making Cinnamon Rolls one morning a few days after Turkey Day. I swore I’d go on baking sabbatical but that aint happen. I found a Cinnamon Roll recipe that didnt require yeast! Crazy right.
Not that I don’t like yeast, it’s just a pain in the butt to wait around for it to “activate” then later let it “rest”. Plus if not careful, it’ll make your food taste like beer.
But why did I make cinnamon rolls? Well it just so happened I bought a 1/2 gallon of buttermilk and barely used any of it on biscuits. And buttermilk will go bad faster than whatever analogy or cheesy pun you want to insert here.
So they came out quite nicely actually. While cutting them up was no fun, I was amazed at how good they looked and how good they smelled. That’s usually a tell-tale sign.
You do eat with your eyes first. As they say in the cooking world.
And they did get eaten. My aunt was amazed by the fact I just made cinnamon rolls from scratch like no big thing. But it really wasnt. For me anyways. I guess I got that skillz. Maybe.
I gotta start coming up with X-mas gifts (Why is it x-mas? anybody know?) for people. The last 2 years, I’ve made food gifts. What shall I make this year? Tell me!!!
Anyways, that it for now. Check out ole-posts (I spelled that on purposed. Look at me be clever). And subscribe to this sucker, if you like what you see/read. More than likely what you see, its a food blog after all. I gotta shave.
