me: portrait


think i broke my wrist again - this would be #6. i hit it on the closet door last night when i was putting up my dirty clothes.....pinkie is numb, hand tingles, lots and lots of pain when i move it....:sigh:

no sense going to the doctor only to be told to wear a brace (got one) for the next 6 weeks and don't do nothing with it (btdt) - dug out the brace and am wearing it now. i still have a stockpile of painkillers....so, why pay the $100 deductible?

hair: washed it with 1 tblspn shikakai and 2/3 tblspn cassia this am. added 2 drops of bpal's pentinence - my hair is soft, shiny, and smells divine! (pun intended :grin:). think i'll do this at least 1x week.

got asked to make some cinnamon rolls for the bake sale next week - guess i'd better go write down the receipe. and retry it to make sure it wasn't a fluke :lol:

Recipe: Cinnamon Rolls

a/k/a Sticky Buns, depending on if you use icing or not. :grin:

This recipe has been converted to bread machine use. If you don't have a bread machine....well, you're on your own here. :lol:

1 1/4 cups water
3 cups flour
2 Tbl dry milk
3 Tbl sugar
1 tsp salt
3 Tbl butter
2 tsp yeast


Brown Sugar
Cinnamon (I use Penzy's Indian Cinnamon; slightly milder than the Vietnamese,and oh, so good)

Combine ingredients in the machine and run through the dough cycle. Remove dough and roll out on lightly floured surface (I skip the flour, to be honest) into a rectangle shape (or somewhat rectangle-ish). Melt 1 stick butter and pour about 1/2 into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan - enough to cover the bottom. Spread the rest of the butter onto the dough.

Sprinkle brown sugar over the bottom of the pan, and over the buttered dough. Sprinkle cinnamon over the dough. Roll the dough into a long rope, cut into slices and place in pan. Cover and let rise 2 hours (I actually cover and put it in the fridge overnight. Works great - and hot, yummy buns in the morning!)

Bake in 350* oven till golden brown on top (about 12 - 15 minutes) Remove from oven immediately. You can either invert the pan on a sheet of wax paper to cool, or you can ice them. If you invert, serve warm with butter - if you ice, dig in. :lol:

These freeze very well - but we never have any left to be frozen.
