Today I decided to stay home (we're trying to balance going out and doing things with staying home and away from people because of covid spiking in our area) so my challenge today was to make cinnamon rolls. I haven't made cinnamon rolls in ages and they didn't really come out well when I tried to make them before but I saw this recipe and decided to try making these one more time. And they turned out pretty great! Not as good as Cinnabon but not hard and dry like the ones I made before. At first I thought I killed the yeast when I mixed the yeast in with the butter and warm milk but they seemed to puff up pretty well and they taste good too!

- My eating habits have gone to crap over the last several months so I am trying to eat a bit better. I am using this checklist to make sure I get a range of healthy food every day.
- If you are a fan of notebooks like me and are looking for Moleskine notebooks, I found some at Target and was shocked that they were only $4.99 (the usual price is $18 to $20). So I picked up a few for gifts for people and saved a bunch of money in the process!
