So yesterday I forgot to recap the weekend. It was pretty awesome (sort of). First of all, I didn't have to work. That's always a good start to the weekend. Second of all, I went shopping. That was fun, but I remembered why I like to stick to online shopping. It's so much easier to find cute stuff online, rather than searching through an entire store (or 10). Third of all, it was like 70 degrees! I wore flip flops and a short sleeve shirt! Heaven I tell ya. Then guess what happened??! IT SNOWED! That is not an excited "IT SNOWED", it's a shocked "IT SNOWED". Only in Utah would it be 70 degrees, and then a few short hours later would it be snowing. And last but not least, my Coordinator Sarah found out that she got accepted into the Utah State University internship to become a Registered Dietician. GOOD JOB Sarah - but we are definitely going to miss you! Several of these recipes wouldn't be made possible without her help :). She doesn't leave us until August, so there are still many creations that we need to squeeze in! So there's my weekend in a nutshell.
This bread is so freakishly good. I LOVE cinnamon. Anything with cinnamon as an ingredient and I'm down. Although, a lot of cinnamony things also contain raisins. That is not ok. Just makes eating it so much more difficult to pick all of those little buggers out. Luckily, this recipe contains no raisins.
We made these a couple of weekends ago for the kids for breakfast. Last Thursday the biggest loser ended at work, and I made this bread Wednesday night so that I could come home Thursday night it would be there waiting for me! When I made it the second time I actually added about a teaspoon of cinnamon into the batter as well. As I said earlier, I love cinnamon. And honestly, you really can eat this batter plain. It is AMAZING. Just grab a spoon and go to town!
