The weather has been crazy this last week!!! It seems like there may have been a switch in weather. Some of you are enjoying our 70 degree San Diego temps, while we are freezing our butts off with 25 degree nights. San Diegans do not have the blood for this shenanigan!
Our heat has not been working for a few years now, but this has never bothered me before because we never turn it on. Luckily, yesterday I prepared the dough, let it rise, and filled and shaped the rolls. I placed them in a greased dish, covered them and put them in the refrigerator overnight. This morning I took them out, put them into a warm place and left them to rise one more time. An hour later my house was finally warm (due to the oven) and smelled like cinnamon.
Once they were warm, I snuggled up on the couch with a blankie, coffee, some good cookbooks and a delicious roll, and peacefully enjoyed my perfect Sunday morning in my book. Then the kids got up. Thankfully they were so excited about breakfast that they didn’t even start to bicker until 10 am!
I didn’t want to tell them that there was a vegetable in their cinnamon rolls so had a whole story planned as to why they were orange. Surprisingly they didn’t even question the color! The sweet potato added a touch of sweetness, but other than that they tasted like a regular roll…except 10 times more moist!
