Give Them Something To Eat.

Today Christine Mussar-Rehkopf asked us to consider the mother who loving packed a lunch of loaves and fish for her son, and how Christ received her gift of love through her son and fed the multitude that followed him.

All of our acts of love grow ever larger through God’s unconditional love for all humanity. 

When we smile at a stranger, cook a casserole for a family in need, hug a child that is crying we are putting into the world love just as that mother did so many years ago.

And like her we will never know the miracles that God has worked from our offerings.

30 minute Cinnamon Buns

We have a microwave, convection oven in our new travel trailer and it has expanded our menu options 100 fold.  As many of you know we have been tenting for the past number of years and while we enjoy tent camping we did not enjoy those late night, early morning walks to the bathrooms, so in search of a small trailer we went and the Rpod 171 is where landed. 

In Grandpa’s travels he happened upon a couple our age with an Rpod, they told him about a great Rpod group on Facebook and this is where we came upon the Cinnamon Bun challenge.  It is really simple make cinnamon buns in your trailer and post a picture and today’s recipe was our contribution.

Everything ready to go
For years we have made cheater cinnamon buns using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and for camping we changed up our recipe to include vanilla Greek yogurt for the glaze, thus there is no need to carry vanilla with you.
Butter and brown sugar ready to melt
We pre-measured all of our dry ingredients placed them in bags and the bags inside the dish we would make the cinnamon buns in wrapped in plastic wrap to keep it all together.  In the refrigerator we kept the crescent rolls, butter and yogurt.

Crescent rolls ready for brown sugar and cinnamon
Here is a tip from our tent camping roll everything out on two long pieces of plastic wrap, roll up the buns and the final clean up is easy – we timed it at 30 minutes from the moment we started to sitting with hot cinnamon buns to eat.

  3. Unroll the crescent rolls onto a lightly floured surface and pat all open seams closed
  4. spread 1/2 brown sugar and cinnamon on the surface of the dough
  5. roll the dough into a tight log from the short end
  6. cut the log into 6 to 8 cinnamon rolls 
  7. Place in the glass pie plate
