Did Jesus drink Coke?

Did Jesus drink Coke?

This is the question my 3yo asked at dinner tonight as I drank some Coke with dinner. It’s not often that I can give an unequivocal answer and it was definitely NO. Imagine the product placement with that one if he did!

Pizza dough

I think today is a day for recipes. I really do enjoy cooking but I’m not a fancy gourmet kind of cook. I’m a home cooking, I-don’t-like-eating-out-of-a-box, kind of cook. But I’m good at it. One of the things that we eat often is homemade pizza. I’m all for getting some Pizza Hut on occasion, particularly when they have slabs 2 for $10, but now that our little family is growing and eating more, eating out becomes more expensive and have you notice how much grease comes off their pizza?? Anyway, I make it from scratch at least every fortnight, if not more often. PIzza is very forgiving because you can put literally anything on it and it still tastes good. I think the key is the base.

Here is a link to the recipe for the pizza dough that I’ve been making for years - Jay’s Signature Pizza Crust from allrecipes.com. As a matter of fact it was because I couldn’t make it the normal way that we bought a breadmaker, which allows me to make perfect dough every time. Another winner recipe from our family to yours.

Forget the cereal, go for the cinnamon rolls

These are, by far, the best cinnamon rolls I have ever made. As a result I’ve eaten more than I should have, considering the rapidly decreasing capacity of my stomach and the heartburn that results from eating too much on a pregnant stomach. But I’m eyeing that last one, wondering if I can possibly fit it in by morning tea time.

I promise to post the recipe later today. My mother-in-law is coming over shortly to help me clean, so I have to do some pre-cleaning :)

Postscript: Here is the recipe link, from allrecipes.com. They’re called Moist Cinnamon Rolls and they are the best that I’ve made in a long time. I’ve tried for a while to use recipes that say they’re just like Cinnabons (which are close to heavenly) but they require the cream cheese frosting which I don’t always have all the ingredients for. These rolls are basically just sweet bread with a great caramel sauce, which is made with brown sugar and butter, which I always have around. And of course the dough is made in the breadmaker which means I don’t have my usual yeast bread hiccups. Try it, I know you’ll like it.

how is this possible??

Despite my preparations last night, my daughters woke even earlier this morning! I believe my clock said 5:53 am when my oldest said from their room “Mommy, I’m ready for breakfast.” I had to stifle a groan. So they’re both awake in their room but they’re still in bed. I’ve got the cinnamon rolls in the oven and now I’m going to use my time to pray and prepare myself. Lord knows I can’t do this on my own!
