Sweet Saturday

Saturday, November 29, 2014
Well, I did not take as many pictures yesterday with Gracie as I had hoped, but we sure did have a fun day.  I guess the "SWEET" part of our day would be the Cinnamon Roll Casserole we made for our breakfast style lunch.  It has been somewhat of a tradition to have breakfast for lunch on the day after Thanksgiving when the grandkids would be over.  Tyler always loved to make the scrambled eggs but this year it was all Gracie.  Tyler did see several deer while hunting yesterday but no luck in bagging one.
Gracie was so excited to tell her mom that Gramma let her use a BIG knife to cut with, just look at her eyes!!
 This is what the Cinnamon Roll Casserole looked like prior to baking...
Want the recipe?
Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole from Gooseberry Patch's Slow Cooker Christmas Favorites.
  • 2 12 oz tubes of cinnamon rolls cut into quarters- divided
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  1. Spray your crock with cooking spray.
  2. Place a layer of cinnamon roll pieces to cover the bottom of your slow cooker. (Reserve icing packets)
  3. Beat eggs, cream, maple syrup, vanilla and spices until blended well.
  4. Pour evenly over the rolls in the slow cooker.
  5. Place remaining roll pieces on top and spoon one packet of icing evenly over rolls.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 2½ to 3 hours or until sides are golden and rolls are set.
  7. Drizzle remaining icing over top and serve warm.
Gracie also helped me to transfer the new family photos into the existing frames on our wall.  Not sure why I procrastinated on this - maybe I just needed my little helper, but I am glad it is done now.  Do you like my generic family in the top left spot? I forgot to order the photo of all the girls together so that will be in there soon.   This is the frame behind our couch...
 This is the proud grandparent wall.  Yes, I know the 1 frame going the opposite direction is going to bug me all year, but the photo was too precious not to display it.
 And this is what we see as soon as we enter our door!
LOVE MY FAMILY!!  We are so blessed!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my SWEET SATURDAY
