Cinabons on the cheap


Hoes in the Outfield
Cinabons are a family favorite, but they're pricey, and quite large (high calonic caloric).   I started making them with my Cuisinart Bread Maker (a truly great thing), but they're a few hours in the making, and relatively labor intensive. Still, MoSup loves her Sunday Cinabons, so I went to the test kitchen.   

Pillsbury makes a Cinnabon , but a tube of 8 costs a hefty $3.75.  But that's not why you'll want to buy the cheaper store brand. This is why.  They cost about $1.29 for 8, but more importantly store brand cinnamon rolls  unroll very easily (see my picture); whereas the Pillsbury won't  unroll at all. You see where this is headed then. 

Do this filling:
(Real Cinnabons don't add the granny sugar; your choice)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
This is enough for two batches, so save half for next week.  Unroll the packaged cinnamon rolls, over-spread with your filling, and re-roll.  Cook per package instructions.    I add Craisins, because we add Crasins to everything.  You can extend the provided  icing with a  little cream cheese if you want more goop. So,  for just a little added work you'll have something that's remarkable.   Yum.  Yum. 

What's that?  You have Type 2 diabetes?  Even better.

You're welcome.

Liberal Culture

Rodge, I think you're way off base when you say there is no rapprochement possible with the Liberal knob wankers in our country who cause so much intolerable vexation, and that they ought be dropped from a helicopter into an active volcano even though that's silly because—  because there are 30+ million of them and even if we used every chopper in the country it would take .... wait --   pi(x) = \sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{\mu(n)}{n}\Pi(x^{1/n}) = \Pi(x) -\frac{1}{2}\Pi(x^{1/2})-\frac{1}{3}\Pi(x^{1/3}) +\frac{1}{4}\Pi(x^{1/4}) -\frac{1}{5}\Pi(x^{1/5}) +\frac{1}{6}\Pi(x^{1/6}) - \cdots zeta(s) = 2^s\pi^{s-1}\ \sin\left(\frac{\pi s}{2}\right)\ \Gamma(1-s)\ \zeta(1-s) \!.  ... okay,  it would take a long  long time.  Is it worth all that?

The Man Who Would Be Henry the VIII

The Bad King

When Obamacare was signed into law in March, the President assured Americans that it does not, in any way, shape, or form, fund elective abortions. He even signed an executive order to this effect. The only problem with Obama's claims, which are being repeated by politicians like Harry Reid and partisan groups like Democrats for Life of America, is that they are not true. [2010 -Does Obamacare Fund Abortion? Let Us Count the Ways]

I am proud of the Catholic church.  Not for religious reasons; because aside from teapartiers they are the only institution to declare war on this evil government as a matter of principle.   I  pray they won't believe the sure to follow lies that will issue from Obama's lying blue lips. We all know what Obama promises are worth. And we know what happens to people who believe him.

An aside, about principles.  Clint Eastwood's unprincipled  (given his prior denunciation of the government seizure of General Motors)  'IT'S HALFTIME IN AMERICA',  is also based on a false premise.  It's not Halftime, it's Sudden Death Overtime.  Whoever scores in the November election wins; the loser can pound sand. If Obama wins, it's truly game over for Americans.
