call me betty + make your own cinnabon

I don't know about your weather, but the past few days here have been overcast and sprinkly. Decked out in the infamous velour tracksuit, I literally holed myself up 1/2 the weekend on the couch with my cookbooks, and's amazing what you can make with a little bit of flour. Like my new favorite recipe ever....Cinnabon cinnamon rolls! And YES, they taste just like them! You have to try're family and friends will LOVE you! And don't be scared about the yeast and kneading dough part......if convenience food girl here can do it, so can you.

Here's some pics of the process.

A few other things I made over the weekend (from scratch):
coffee cake (Sat. breakfast)
cheeseburger soup (Sun. lunch)
biscuits to go with the soup
oh...and the hub's joined in the fun on Friday nite and made some homemade peanut butter cookies.
There's even talk about us getting new pans. Feels so Betty Crocker!
PS. I love reading all of your comments and would like to respond individually but am having a hard time figuring out how to do that through blogger. So far, I've only found stuff for Wordpress. If anyone has any tips leave a comment or email me: ahappycircusatgmaildotcom.
PPS. I will be linking this post up to the following:

brush up

Funny little moment. Today after lunch I told the girls to go brush their teeth. "No thank you", Luci politely declines as she walks into the other room. "No thank you" repeats little sister as she marches behind big sis into the other room. "You don't want to get rotten teeth" I say. "What are rotten teeth?" asks big sis. Well....glad you ask I think to myself as I google it and come up with this blog with nothing but rotten teeth pics.

As I came to the bottom of the second page of pics, Luci gets up and heads to the bathroom as she says in a very matter of fact voice...."Well.......looks like we are brushing our teeth".

And because I couldn't leave you with such a nasty are some pretty spring pics from Polyvore. And that is all.
