Good morning! Well, no one guessed the right thing for the baking project, but I’ll get to that in a minute :)
Allow me to introduce why I love our homemade coffee so much.
This is the antique coffee grinder we bought last weekend – it’s so cool! I think Nick found online that it was probably made in the late 1800’s, and yes, we use it to grind our coffee beans now. No electricity needed! Plus, it’s beautiful.
This is the other new addition to our coffee collection:
The little french press on the right was our original one, but it only made 1 cup at a time. We just bought this monster one a few weeks ago and it makes 32 oz. at a time. Possibly one of the best inventions ever?
Needless to say, I really enjoyed my coffee today. I did miss it a bit the past 2 days, but I enjoyed the tea I had, too. I think I’m just used to having that coffee flavor in the morning so it will take some getting used to, but not having any in a couple days made me really enjoy and savor our awesome coffee this morning.
Breakfast included a cup of coffee with a little skim milk and an orange I split with Nick.
Are you ready to see my baking project? It turned out AWESOME.
I made one of Nick’s favorite things in the whole world…
Homemade Cinnamon Rolls! I used this Cooking Light recipe, but made a few changes to make it even healthier.
I used 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, and just 1/2 cup regular flour. I also used light butter in the filling since that’s what I had. They turned out awesome, and they’re basically all whole wheat!
Of course, I need a more filling breakfast than just a cinnamon roll, so…
That’s right. Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal! Holy Yum!
- 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- 2 Tbsp pecans
- 1 cinnamon roll
What’s the most decadent meal you’ve ever had?
