Sunday night, I had a brilliant idea. Well, at the time it seemed brilliant. I decided that Monday morning I would get up a few minutes earlier and make cinnamon rolls. Sounds pretty harmless, right? Aaron is usually the one who cooks breakfast but I wanted to give him a break.
I went on Pinterest and found a recipe that included crescent rolls. I happened to have some in the fridge. Actually, that is what triggered the whole ‘I’ll make breakfast’ episode.
The next morning, my alarm went off. I got out of bed and showered, excited at the prospect of making breakfast and surprising everyone. Now, seriously, before I go further, I really can and do cook… and before you think differently, it is almost always really, good food. Now that we have that out there, I will continue on with my story.
I made Aaron a cup of coffee and woke him up. I told him that I was making breakfast and bounced back to the kitchen. Eh… bounced is probably an exaggeration but I was excited about this recipe.The recipe called for a pie pan. Apparently, since the last time I used my pie pan it has disappeared, either that or it had an idea of what awaited it. Giving up the search, I pulled out a round cake pan. It is one of those that the bottom can push out leaving you with a nice, clean edge.
