Today is my baby's 12 th birthday. My "Bubby"; my boy; my sweetness. Every momma should have a son as huggibly delicious as my Eric. Can I just say... I love my kid? This child will jump up at the chance to help you with groceries, LOVES to make you smile or laugh, and can't pass kissin' a baby's cheeks even if he wanted to. I mean, c'mon, they just don't make them like him anymore. I s'pose I get to take some credit for him, but really, I think God just gave him to me like this. I am blessed.
So, it's no secret that I work very hard in the garden and once in a while I get pooped before I'm really finished. Cleaning up my tornado of weeding isn't my strongest point, so I often strike up a deal with my dear son in order to get him to clean up after my gardening garbage.
This week, the deal was a week long menu of breakfast dishes. I'd like to be able to say that I make a piping hot breakfast for my kids every morning, but the truth is... I don't. I'm more apt to make breakfast for dinner than for the actual slotted time for breakfast. So I agreed to make Eric breakfast every day this week, beginning with Tuesday.
Tuesday we had french toast.
Wednesday was scrambled eggs and bacon.
Thursday saw Chocolate chip waffles.
But today is my Bubby's birthday, so we are going all out with homemade cinnamon rolls. He's beside himself. I think he might have even had trouble sleeping last night. ;)
Celebration Cinnamon Rolls
I made the dough last night by using my "Favorite dough recipe" dough with an added teaspoon or two of lemon juice in with all the wet ingredients. I let it cycle through in the dough cycle on my bread machine, then I went to work making the sweet rolls.
3 ounces cream cheese
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
