Comfort Food

I have had a miserable cold for the last two days and so today even though I didn't need them and I have been trying to get back on my diet again, I decided to make home made sweet rolls.
My friend Margie, who we spent the weekend with in Louisiana last weekend made these yummy rolls for us for breakfast while we were there.  They were so good I had to have the recipe for them.
Today I broke down and decided that only thing that would make me feel better was if I made these for us to eat-lol!
So I got the ingredients when we went to the store and came home and made them (did I mention you make the dough in your bread machine?!) while I got lunch ready I threw the dough in the bread machine for the dough to mix and rise then when we were done with lunch the dough was ready for me to punch down and roll out and cut up into the rolls-then more rising, baking and frosting and yeah they are done and ready to eat.
I must say that my cold is still just as bad as it was before the sweet rolls, but my belly is happy and they sure tasted yummy.  It is a great recipe for company too cause it made this 13X9 pan (which makes about 12) and then another smaller pan of 8.
Thanks for the great recipe Margie.  We loved them. Now I need to go finishing getting ready to go meet the teacher for the boys tonight-I have blown my nose so many times today that I have blown all my make up off.

Grace I wish I could mail some to you cause there are too many here to eat without either making us sick or 20 pounds heavier than we need to be. lol
We did have a good meet the teacher for the boys. I am homeschooling Alyssa this year and so I am excited and a little bit nervous about that but we are ready to get started. I may pull the boys out next year or wait until 5th grade like we did Alyssa we are not sure yet, just praying about it so we will wait and see where God leads us with that.

Kate-I would send some to you if I could-it was a perfect comfort food-didn't make my cold better but it sure made my tummy feel good. lol
You're so welcome-I enjoy coming over to your blog to read your posts.
Blessings to you too.
