Oh, do I have a story for you.

Last Friday night, Handsome and I were cleaning up after dinner and debating what we would like to do for the evening when my phone rang. It was the state police, telling me that I needed to come to Court House 11. Right then. Not weeks or months later. Right then. 8:45 on Friday night. Seriously? Had I committed some crime that I wasn’t aware of?

Nope. It was for something much more ridiculous.

Remember all the way back in January when I did the right thing and stopped for a car accident I saw? Now I know why people don’t bother. Apparently, they were supposed to subpoena me, but the paperwork got lost and they waited until the last minute before realizing they needed me.

I called a friend of mine just to make sure this wasn’t some cop trick.

I had to drive 45 minutes on a Friday night for a fender bender because someone refuses to admit they failed to yield. Handsome just laughed and I sighed and completed my civic duty. I got to draw on a dry erase board, make assumptions towards the basic laws of physics, answer the same question reworded over and over, and swear to tell the whole truth and all that jazz. All because she didn’t want to admit she simply failed to yield (you know, the only way her car would have been able to collide with his). I’m sad if this is what our law enforcement is wasting their time on.

Days like this put me in the mood for the ultimate cinnamon buns.

Without asking, I’m convinced at least one person I know just read this with a little ‘I told you so’ grin on their face. Be careful, or I won’t share my ultimate cinnamon buns with you. 😉

This Friday, May 13, Steph’s Bite by Bite is hosting a bake sale on Friday May 13th to raise money Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I can’t wait to participate in an online bake sale! I’ve never done anything like this before but it is the second time Steph has hosted a bake sale on her site. I’m donating Cranberry White-Chocolate Chip Cookies (one of my favorites). Tons of awesome bakers are involved, so get pumped! Steph’s last bake sale earned $1,707 – let’s see if we can up the ante for round two!

No! No! No! The 1/2 cup cornstarch absolutely ruins this recipe. While the dough is lovely to work with and the buns bake up beautifully, the texture to the taste is slightly starchy, almost scratchy to the teeth. My husband loved the first two or three bites, then said the same thing. My neighbor -- a San Francisco Culinary Institute graduate(baking focus) -- had the same reaction. Sadly, I threw the batch out.

Sorry. Dump recipe -- or, at least, drastically reduce the cornstarch.

I once witnessed a car accident and kinda promised myself I pretend I don't see a thing next time it happens. They called me couple of times, even lost one day to the court as I was called in to testify. Oh boy, so many things to go though, more than when I was in a car accident. well, obviously it was my fault then LOL

these rolls are the perfect solution to start the weekend :)) thanks for sharing Kita

I haven't had a cinnamon bun in ages. I love walking by a bakery or even a mall food court and smelling the sweet aroma of cinnamon rolls. This is going on my list of things I need to bake!

Those cinnamon buns would make anything better. I think the woman that failed to yield could probably use one of these! Great post and good for you for doing your civic duty.
