garlic cheddar brioche buns

It’s Friiiiiday, Friiiiiday, gotta get down on…

Ahem. Friday.

But seriously, I could not be more ready for the weekend. The weather here might not say so but it IS springtime, dangit, and we’re planning on living it up for dinner at least once this weekend by grilling. This is about as exciting as our life gets right now, you guys, as we wait for baby to arrive (then life will REALLY get exciting… gah). I am slowly narrowing the radius for acceptable driving distances from our house/the hospital each and every day. As the husband so aptly put it, “It’s like we’re living in The Truman Show.”

Well hey, as long as there are burgers on garlic cheddar brioche buns to be had inside the bubble, I’m cool with it.

And now, about these blueberry buttermilk biscuits. Let’s just put it this way: I’m up to my eyeballs in quick breads and muffins and biscuits and scones and coffee cakes from this eBook (and my freezer is so full, I have to sloooowwllly open the door to avoid rock-hard frozen loaves catapulting at my face) and I STILL wanted to make these. I do not regret this decision, as the day I baked them I also baked two other types of biscuits and I ate no less than one of each of them and was in full-on biscuit bliss all day long. Also my house smelled like one giant, buttery biscuit. It was glorious.

morning glory scones

Well, you guys, not going to lie — it has been a WEEK.

It started with a gigantimous to-do list on Monday after a few rough nights of sleep, followed by server issues on my blog (yay for tech problems I don’t understand! and for sarcasm!) and a few other hiccups in my days. But then it ended with these Morning Glory scones, so I’d say all is well and forgiven, Horrible Week. Now let’s eat scones and forget about each other.

In case you don’t know what “Morning Glory” implies, it usually has to do with the magical medley of the following ingredients: carrots, apples, raisins, shredded coconut, chopped nuts and spices. Sometimes I see pineapple thrown in there, too, and I’m totally down with that.

loaded mashed potato stuffed biscuits

I don’t know about you, but I’m fiercely battling some cabin fever these days. These winters, they get to be long, too long (and too cold, brrr) and come mid-January, I’m ready for it to be over. But it’s far from that, unfortunately.

So… what to do, what to do…

Obviously, you make brinner and turn it into a party, that’s what.

brown butter apple cheddar pie crescent rolls

It’s finally the Christmas season and while I’m feeling all sorts of merry and joyful, I’m also feeling immense guilt over all the Pinterest crafts I planned to do this year and never did.

Oh, this is nothing new. Every year, I declare that “this! This will be the year I make that homemade advent calendar! That I decorate my tree in homemade origami ornaments! That I crochet infinity scarves for all my friends and relatives! That I make a homemade wreath that won’t fall apart in two days!”

And then I get bogged down with Christmas shopping and to-do lists and baking brown butter apple cheddar pie crescent rolls and none of the crafts ever happen. Though I have to say that in the case of pie-stuffed crescent rolls, I’ll take them over crafts any day.

sweet potato-marshmallow cinnamon rolls

Sometimes I wonder if I could be one of those people who literally eats the exact same foods every day for his or her entire life. I mean, it would be convenient and there are plenty of foods I love enough to eat on a daily basis. Mashed potatoes are one of them. Same goes for peanut butter and jelly. Bread, duh. I could probably live on enchiladas, too, and cookie dough ice cream for dessert.

But then I think about all those other foods I love that would be neglected (like my beloved brussels sprouts, or macaroni and cheese, or my mom’s spaghetti sauce) and I realize that eating the same foods every day for my whole life would be a real drag (these are the things that take up space in my brain sometimes, I know).

One thing I could eat every day — if my hips would allow it, anyway — are breakfast rolls, reason being because there are so many variations you could make. Like these gingerbread rolls, for instance. Or these raspberry-filled ones, or these Meyer lemon poppy seed ones. Most likely, however, I’d go for these sweet potato-marshmallow cinnamon rolls time and time again because… well, I don’t think that really requires an explanation, do you?
