Wow – this weekend just flew by!
Friday night I went out with friends to celebrate the end of the semester! We had dinner at the Auld Dubliner in Tucson. They are awesome because they brush their french fries with a curry powder that is just an amazing little surprise! You never expect curry on fries, but it is DELISH!!!
We also over-indulged a wee with the drinks ; )
Saturday consisted of lots of errands, some R&R, a little biking, and loving with Rocky
Sunday morning I made a yummy breakfast that has always been reserved for special occasions. Today was nothing special, but I had all the ingredients so I decided to make it anyways
Sticky Roll Pull-Aparts
One 3-oz package of regular butterscotch pudding
1 cup melted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
cinnamon to taste
24 frozen dough balls (like Rhoads)
Stir butter and sugar together In a small bowl. In a bundt pan, pour pecans and place 24 frozen dough balls. Sprinkle dry pudding mix over the top & pour sugar/butter mixture on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and cover with wax paper. Leave to rise overnight.
In the morning, bake the rolls in bundt pan at 350 for 20-30 minutes, until rolls are browned on top.
So – this is a recipe that my Mom has always used (this was our traditional Christmas morning breakfast for years and years). I don’t have a bundt pan so I cooked it in a casserole-style baking dish and it didn’t work quite as well…I found that some of the rolls were burned and others still doughy, so they didn’t cook evenly. I have made it several times with the bundt pan and it has always worked well – so if you’re going to try the recipe, I’d suggest cooking it in the correct baking dish.
Despite the uneven cooking, I found a couple that were done just perfectly!
Other weekend highlights include getting a few Christmas presents, getting some new flameless candles/decorations, going to the dog park,
yummy stuffed chicken breasts,
and just a little bit of lazing about
I’m ready for Monday! Bring it on, work-week! Last week until heading back to Texas for some family time!!!
