i needed something to sweeten my mood today and when i saw these heart-shaped cinnamon rolls by lisa leonard, i smiled. during the last few months, our newest family ritual has been waking up on saturday mornings to the sweet smell of cinnamon rolls baking.
as you might already know, friday night is our family pizza night. after tossing our pizzas into the oven, i quickly prepare a pan of cinnamon rolls, which i place in the refrigerator until morning. really, it's so simple to do. and i love the excitement of my children as they remind me immediately after waking to take the rolls out of the refrigerator and to preheat the oven. and usually, i have at least one eager child wanting to drizzle the cream cheese icing over the rolls after they come out of the oven.
my children would absolutely be surprised (and love) if they woke up to heart-shaped cinnamon rolls this saturday morning. what a great idea!! how about you... do you have any family rituals your family looks forward to each week??
