Y’all. I am so over winter. I just can’t hang with these frigid temperatures, ridiculously cold winds, and days on end at home. I truly believe I have a mild case of seasonal affective disorder. Right now, spring seems but a distant dream.

I just can’t hang with this foolishness. I miss the sun. I miss going outside with my kids (I NEVER thought I’d say that; I’m what you call “indoorsy”). I miss walking out to my car and not having to basically shove tissues up my nose to stop all the running!

I want to take family walks in the neighborhood without the fear of my kids getting hypothermia. I want my hair to stop being so freaking static-y because the air is so dry. And I want to not have to wear layers upon layers of clothing just to walk to the mailbox!

However, don’t–as the kids say–“get it twisted”, though. I am in NO WAY ready for the triple-digit-hotter-than-the-surface-of-the-sun-humidity that is an Oklahoma summer. But dang, man. Is a 70-75 degree day too much to ask?

Sigh. 

Until then, I’ll just be over here price-checking flights to the Bahamas.

Try It Tuesday

Remember when the cold went away and we all rejoiced? Yeah. That was great.

Enter: this week. Its cold. Its gray. I. HATE. IT.

The only saving grace about this dreary weather is today’s Try it Tuesday! Its warm, its yummy, and it makes being cooped up inside totes worth it.

Ooooohhhh yeeeeaahhhh! (Full disclosure: my sister made the monkey bread. And it was AWESOME!)

Here’s what you need:

24 frozen Rhodes Rolls

1 cup brown sugar

1 box of butterscotch Jell-O pudding (not the instant!)

1/4 cup white sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 stick butter

 

First, Bridget sprayed a bundt pan with Pam and dropped all the rolls inside.

Then, she mixed the brown sugar and pudding mix together and sprinkled it over the frozen rolls.

Then, she added the white sugar and cinnamon on top of that, as well as the melted stick of butter.

She let the rolls rise (a few hours) and then baked the monkey bread at 350 for 30 minutes.

GUYS. This was SO. STINKING. GOOD. The only thing that could have made it better was if I remembered to make coffee with it. I didn’t get a chance to take a picture after it was finished baking because it was eaten THAT fast! We are DEFINITELY trying this again!
