I had prepared an entirely different post for today but then Mary decided to do some baking. When we were kids my Mom always made cinnamon buns for Christmas. It was a tradition to have warm, fresh delicious cinnamon buns before we were allowed to open our gifts.

Last week my sister wrote and said she was busy baking cinnamon buns and that inspired Mary to do the same.

Don't they look good enough to eat right off the page?

These buns are slightly different. You mix up the dough, make the buns up into the pans, then leave it in the fridge until you are ready for some buns. Take the pan out of the fridge, bake and voila .................... fresh out of the oven cinnamon buns.

We did a batch right in our kitchen counter oven. On sunny days we use solar power to do our baking.

Tragically those buns didn't last very long. I simply have no willpower when it comes to Mary's delicious baking. 

Today we will use a smaller pan and only bake four at a time; two each ........... much more respectable.

The outside temperature as I type is -31*C or -24*F Another reason to stay inside and do some baking.

Enjoy your day and think of us enjoying those cinnamon buns.
