So tomorrow is the “Big Day” for all the football fans. Here is a little secret. Other than my son, nobody in this house is a huge football fan. I have no interest in it whatsoever, my two youngest kids could care less about it. And my husband will watch it, but it’s not his big thing. I’ll touch on what his big deal is in a bit. But, even hubby will be interested in this years game because he lived in New Orléans for a while, so I know he will watch the game and exactly who he will be rooting for.
Me? I’ll be working and doing a double shift, so I won’t be here at all. Which suits me just fine. Normally I make lots of nibble food for days like tomorrow, but since I won’t be here, that won’t be happening.
However, next week, Sunday, February 14th WILL be a big day in our house. I would love to tell you it was because of the romance of St. Valentine’s Day and that cupids arrow would be piercing my husbands hiney with lust and romance. The lust part is pretty much a given no matter what day of the week, because he is a man. Forget I just said that. This is a PG rated site. But as for the romance part…there will be no time for that! Because next week is the Daytona 500 and aside from hunting and fishing, my husband lives and breaths for Nascar. Also, I’m not working next Sunday, so I will be home to make all of those tasty little nibbles to eat. So while other sites are busy posting all of their delicious little noshes for the big game tomorrow, I’ll save mine for next week to share with you.
Now, on to the deliciousness part of this post. That would be these little beauties:
Oh the gooey goodness of these is outrageous! And they are simple! So simple even someone as scattered brained as me can make them!
I found this recipe while visiting Never Enough Thyme. I’ve spoken before about Lana who owns that blog and how much I enjoy checking it daily. She posted this recipe awhile back and the minute I saw it I knew I had to make it. I did shortly after seeing it, and have made it several times since then.
She calls them “Overnight Sweet Rolls”. You set these up the night before with frozen bread dough, stick them in your oven (on off) overnight. When you wake up the next morning, they are all puffed up and ready to be baked! What could be easier! These would be fantastic for a brunch or hectic holiday morning. They are now in my permanent recipe book collection.
Here is the link for these little beauties at Lana’s blog. Check it out because she gives you step by step instructions and photos, and you can see for yourself how simple they are to make. Overnight Sweet Rolls
Your thighs will hate you, but your taste buds will sing with joy!
