Thanksgiving is over, the dishes are done, the left-overs are in the fridge, and the scales put away for a week or two... ;0) We had a great time, although I didn't even take one picture, very strange for me! But we had a wonderful time at my daughters home this year. Her husband makes the best turkey, and she makes the best stuffing, that's all I need... that and rolls.
I made the rolls this year and seriously, who does not love a fresh roll right out of the oven? There is just something about warm bread that warms my soul.
I used the, Lion House roll recipe, it's so good, and super easy to make...not so easy to roll like they do, but you can make it into any roll that you want, they make wonderful crescent rolls. I made two batches for Thanksgiving, because you have to leave a bag with the hostess, and it's really important to have a turkey sandwich on a roll before you go to bed...or maybe the next day...right? :0)
The Lion House is in, Salt Lake City, Utah, and is famous for these mouth watering rolls, they are so delicious. I'm not sure if they're delicious because of the way they're rolled, or if after all the fun of flipping and rolling them, they just taste better, who knows, but I love them.
The Lion House was built in 1856 by Brigham Young. The home gets it's name from the stone statue of the lion over the front door. This gorgeous home was once home to Brigham Young and his large family, so it's very old with lots of history.
This is one of the rooms in the Lion House. It's the same room that my daughter and her husband had their wedding dinner in, it's just beautiful with it's pointed windows, with their original wavy glass. This photo was taken at my Aunt and Uncle's 50 wedding anniversary dinner.
Back to the rolls. These rolls just look so pretty, especially right out of the oven. I should have put butter over the top of them after they came out of the oven, but really, they don't need it, as they have butter slathered on them before you roll them up. Although it would have made them shiny and lovely.
I copied this recipe from, Jodi, at 5 Boys Baker, because hers was already typed out, and it has a video of how to roll these wonderful rolls included in the directions!
Have a wonderful week!
Hugs and Love,
