I have a co-worker who really misses his wife as she had passed some years ago
While talking about her he became quite contemplative and reminiscent
He talked about all the good food she would make for him... But
There were two special recipes she made this time of year that he missed the most
One is Lefse a Norwegian crepe and the second was her cinnamon rolls
I mentioned that I would be happy to try and recreate them if I had her recipes
Now I am not a chief... But I do consider myself someone who can follow a recipe quite well to great review by them who break bread with me
I have to say that her quite simple recipe through me for a loop
Her FIVE ingredient recipe was Greek to me
It took me three batches to come up with the above cinnamon rolls....
But more than that I had to get help so I sent out a call for help to figure out what I was doing wrong
Well in the end it was my very own father who dropped by for a visit to tell me what I needed to do
LOL I love my dad he worked for the railroad for all his life and is now retired. Who would have guessed
His mother being the great German woman she was had had six sons and taught all of them how to cook, clean, sew and Iron
His father taught them how to use their hands to garden, work on cars and build a house which he did when married my mother to accommodate all of us
After his offer of help I think we have a success!
At work there was complaint that he was the only one who received cinnamon rolls lol
But I think a retired city worker and veteran
who only has one leg who moves around with a prosthetic leg
who is 87 years old and keeps up with the rest of us deserves a little attention! Don't you?
I think so.... Below is the picture of my first two batches for a laugh! I love a good laugh... makes me happy
This last one here was more like Cinnamon Roll cookies hahahaha
