Honey Buns!

The Great BZWZ has taken over the traditional Christmas Eve Honey Bun detail. The dough gets made then rises all night. Then Plot wakes up Belly and the two of them punch the dough down early in the morning and let it rise again. Then it gets rolled out, sprinkled with cinammon and sugar and rolled up into rolls. Honey gets poured into the bottom of a baking dish and the rolls go on top of the honey. Now they are honey buns. Into the oven they go.

The rule is nobody gets to open any presents until the honey buns are hot and ready to eat.

OK, so there was one exception made. Belly got, may Jesus forgive us, a Barbie Car. She absolutely positively could not wait to open that box. So she got to go early.

Last night's Christmas Eve dinner was pretty danged spectacular. PD made teriyaki salmon which we bbq'd on a cedar plank that Grandma Joy and Paul gave us last year, and we brushed the salmon with chimichurri. BZ made guacamole and 5H made Faranaz's mango salad. Barb made her mom's corn pudding. Of course there were Beaujolais beets and tabboule with bulgar and lentils and also marinated olives and let's not forget Ducknik's sour cream lemon and apple pies.

Sadly, the only photo of the pies is this one, which shows what happens to an apple pie when Isabella squirrels into it for breakfast.

Time is passing today. More tomorrow. Merry Christmas everybody from Great Plotnik World Headquarters!

I'll take a tray of honey buns to go next year at Thanksgiving.

Wait - what part of this explained that crown? Apple pie for breakfast is a great idea.

It's been a VERY long time since I've tasted those honey buns!
What a great collection of pictures!
Merry Christmas to all!
