Cheat Day

So today I am going a little cheat day crazy. There have been a few different recipes I wanted to try. First, white chocolate popcorn. This was super easy. I microwaved 1 bag of popcorn and then melted 3 squares of Almond Bark. Poured that on top of the popcorn, stirred till it was mixed well. Let it cool. Then drizzled melted chocolate chips on it and yum it was done. Unfortunatly I ate it to quickly to take a picture.

Next, yesterday my friend blogged about Lion House dinner rolls, so I decided I just had to try those. So here we go yeast project #2. I think they turned out well. Here is the recipe. I thought they were super easy. Some things I have learned that have helped me with these yeast recipes are: make sure that the temperature of your water is between 110-115 degrees before you add the yeast. If it is to hot it will burn your yeast. I just dip a meat thermometer in the water to test the temp. Next little tip: I hate waiting forever for the dough to rise, so I will turn on my oven to whatever temperature I will be baking at and I will sit the bowl of dough on top of the oven and the warmth of the oven will shorten the rising time substantially.

Hey guys! I was so excited to find your comment on my blog! I've been meaning to thank you for that incredible photo cd you sent us a couple of months ago! We only got to watch it once because it made Jeremy so homesick for Utah and life in America that I had to put it away... :) So, do keep in touch and keep us posted on your lives!

You are officially banned from posting "cheat day" reports. I was inspired by your ideas and we're having DELICIOUS popcorn for FHE dessert tonite. Unfortunately, I haven't been body for lifing the rest of the week to justify my indulgence. I was so happy to see your blog pop up on our friends and family. Now we can keep better track of you and your cute boys. Maybe even hook up for a Disney vacation.
