i am not good in the kitchen... i am funny

so today, being saturday, i decided i would try one of my new recipes i found for cinnamon rolls.
the recipe seemed easy... so i was like, how are could i mess these up??
haha
i follow the instructions.. i am feeling great!!
then, once it is ready to rise... it says place in a warm place and let it double in size.
i place it on top of the oven... while it is pre heating... for warmth.
BAD IDEA!!!
so it doubled in size and i was going to roll it flat... to make the rolls.
i go to get it out.. the oven was so hot that it started cooking into bread from the bottom!!
hahah!!
(at this point i am laughing out loud... cj is sleeping because he stays up till like 4am studying.. and i am laughing about how bad i am in the kitchen)
i started to make a mess... spreading the dough everywhere... then i was like NO... i am going to make an invention.
cinnamon biscuits!!
long story short... i put butter, cinnamon, and powder sugar on a plop of dough...
tried to roll it up some how...
and put them in the oven for 22 minutes
then, i see how funny this is looking in the oven.. i call home and tell them the story... funny!!
maybe it is meant to be... i am not a good baker!! haha
BUT THEN.... THE BUZZER RANG.....THEY WERE DONE
so i put some butter on the top and some cream cheese frosting.... haha
take it to the husband in bed (yes... is is 11:30... he is still in bed)
they are pretty good!!
my invention was NOT a failure. just the presentation needs work.
just look how rough these suckers look... i just couldn't get my self to throw it all away... my whole morning!!
what can i say?? i am creative!!!
NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER!!
(my motto in the kitchen... haha)

there you have it... funny stuff!!
toni calls them.... "lil loafs"

i just try so hard... ya know??
but in the end, i feel great about them!!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
