dealing with grandpa


A couple of years ago
I was visiting my grandpa and I noticed an old Kitchen Aid in the corner of the room. It was covered with tupperware and had a healthy layer of dust.

I had a thought: How sad! That thing looks like it hasn't been used it years!

And I had another thought: I would use it everyday if it were mine.

And another: I should ask him about it.

"Grandpa, does anyone ever use that mixer?"

"Oh no! It was your grandmother's and hasn't been used since she passed away."


That was over 10 years ago.

This is where I gather my courage...

"Can I have it?"

He thought. I waited.

"If you make me some cinnamon rolls."


I packed it up, cleaned it up, and went back to my mom's house to make up some goodness for my sweet grandpa.

So today, to kick off fall (with a little better attitude) I'm going to make those same rolls (they never fail):


Sorry, but I'm too lazy to type it this morning - I have been out reconstructing a chicken fence, but I can taste those rolls already.

I may just have to try these- I am really missing chocolate these days and could use a non- chocolaty autumn treat!
