I’m attempting to make Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls for my boss’s feast day tomorrow. It was going pretty well — my yeast reacted well, my dough rose perfectly, it rolled out nicely…
But then I had to roll up the dough and cut it into little rolls. How can something so simple-sounding be so hard?
I have a new appreciation for cinnamon rolls. Look at the ones pictured at the recipe! Seriously? How’d she do that?! Mine were pretty disastrous-looking:
I hope they taste better than they look.
Maybe once they rise tomorrow morning, they’ll magically look like cinnamon rolls? Or else I’ll just rename them, “Pumpkin Cinnamon Blobs.”
I was feeling sorry for myself until I tuned into the Chopped marathon tonight (I love that show) and saw on the grand finale of the tournament that they needed to use waffle cones, Buddha’s hand, geoduck, and black radishes in their appetizer. I’d never even heard of three of those four ingredients.
I think I’ll stick with my blobs.
P.S. Um, is it weird that the finale of the Chopped Championship made me tear up?!
