I'm not quite sure where to start here. Grandkids or curry? Well, let's just start with curry. It's not something I'm terribly fond of. I'll put it in chicken green bean casserole or chicken salad with a bit of chutney. But, a full-on curry? Not so much. One of the few things that's just not a favorite. Now, keep in mind that I make the assignments for the Blogger CLUE Society. Every month we're assigned a fellow blogger and asked to choose a recipe to make and post about. It's a fabulous group of bloggers so I always love reading everyone's posts. And, I get a LOT of great ideas for future meals. Last month we stopped at the store and bought the things I needed so I could make one of the recipes that very night :-) When I make the assignments, I decide up front what the formula will be. Then, that's the way it is. I don't look at the list. I don't choose who I'd like to have. I just pick a formula like one has six, two has seven... So, this month I got a blog titled Curry and Comfort. My heart sank. I'd have to fix curry and blog about it like I liked it. But, I'd soldier on and do it for the group. Then, I started reading Ramona's wonderful blog. It's not all curry. In fact, a huge percentage isn't curry. There are TONS of wonderful recipes there. I had a list of fun things to try. We were heading to Columbus over the holidays to see our kids and grandkids. And, Ramona has some great kid friendly recipes. One in particular caught my eye. Our munchkins love sweet rolls. They would love these mini cinnamon rolls. So, Ramona, thank you so much for a fun morning with my grandkids. They came in the kitchen all tousled and barely awake. And, they left with full bellies from a fun meal!
Ramona from Curry and Comfort is delightful. She's originally from Sri Lanka but has spent most of her life in the US. It's no wonder she's got great recipes for kids since she's got two of her own. And, like me, she collects cookbooks. My hubby would be SO happy if I only had 400 like she does. Last count I had about 1200... One of the things I like about Ramona's blog is that she doesn't just do photos of the finished dish. She shows you along the way what the dish looks like. And, she uses some convenience foods for those of us who are crazy busy. One of our differences is that she loves spicy food and I'm not a huge fan of anything spicy. So, instead of making her Asian Apricot Chicken Wings and taking the heat out, I focused on the recipes I didn't need to change thanks to me being a wimp! But, I am so going to make those wings later. And, just a note her, according to my friend, Christiane, Ramona has some fabulous curries on her blog. Hopefully, you're a fan of curries and will go try some. And, I promise, some day soon I'll try one myself.
I'm going to let Rosie and Bradley show you how:
Unroll the dough from a can (or two - these don't last long) of crescent rolls. Lay the two pieces out on a silpat or your very clean counter. Press the seams together.
Melt a tablespoon or two of butter (you'll need about one per can.) Then, brush on the butter. You see we didn't have a brush to a spoon worked just fine.
Sprinkle the dough with cinnamon and sugar and roll the dough up lengthwise.
Cut each roll into eight rounds. Put the rounds on a baking sheet cut side up. Bake according to the package directions. While they're baking, make some powdered sugar icing. Pour about a cup of powdered sugar into a bowl. Add about a quarter of a teaspoon of vanilla and a tablespoon of milk. Mix well. The kids did a magnificent job of sharing their tasks.
It should be easily drizzled. If it's too runny, add powdered sugar. If too thick, add milk. Once the rolls come out of the oven, drizzle them with the icing. Now, the trick is to keep everyone from snitching one so you can actually serve them with breakfast. That's the reason for the second pan of rolls! There's the finished product - with one missing already! - along with homemade sausage and quiche.
