Mrs. Wilt is doing an Anti-Procrastination Challenge this week and I thought I would join in the fun! I decided to tackle the cupboards in our livingroom.
Here is the "before" picture. I'm not even going to explain what all that stuff is in there! ;0)
I'm most happy about getting my candles all in one place. I put them on a tray and now it's easy to slide the whole thing out and get what I need.
Here it is tidied up and organized. I put the beading, felt board and rubber stamp supplies all on the left. Candles and phone books on the right.
Even Fern likes the new look!
Now the way I see it, no work should go unrewarded. Anna's Schoolhouse Quick Sweet Rolls are the perfect reward and they make a yummy breakfast too!
Here are Anna's notes:
I simply took a double batch of biscuit dough and rolled it into a large flat rectangle, spread it with softened butter, sprinkled it heavily with brown sugar and cinnamon, before rolling it up into a log and slicing it in half-inch slices (just like cinnamon rolls) to bake in a greased pan. The whole process took less than half an hour, and they were perfect for a cold wet work day.
These would also take kindly to the addition of raisins, dried cherries, chopped dried apricots, walnuts, or pecans, I think. Or all of the above. And in case you don't have a good biscuit recipe, here's the one I use from the back of the baking powder can:
2 1/4 c. white flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
Fluff together with pastry blender. Then cut in:
1/2 c. shortening
1 .c milk (can use rice or soy to keep dairy-free)
over mixture. With hands or rubber spatula, gently mix until it holds together as a dough. I never roll mine out, just grab off chunks and roughly shape into biscuit shapes by hand. Lay on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 450 for about 10 minutes.
I baked my cinnamon rolls at 400F for about 30 minutes.
I made a simple glaze from icing sugar and milk for drizzling over the top.
Does anyone else have a project they have been putting off?
