Death by Cinnamon Bun


My oldest calf, Angus, is responsible for making dinner on Wednesday nights.  Wednesday nights are crazy with sports practices and dance classes and I am too busy running calves all over town to deal with dinner.  Angus loves to make breakfast food so on Wednesdays he typically makes breakfast for dinner.  Since I have gone on the low GI diet, he makes me egg beaters and turkey bacon.  He makes the rest of the family home made buttermilk waffles, as well as eggs, bacon and whatever else he feels like.  Somehow resisting the home made waffles has never been an issue but last night Angus decided to add home made cinnamon buns complete with home made icing.

When I got home at about 8:30 last night, I wasn’t even hungry but Angus proudly  showed me this pan of homemade Cinnamon buns and declared, “These are awesome, you have to try one.”  How could I refuse?  I took the smallest littlest corner…I was just going to have a taste.  OMG!! These suckers were unbelievable.  Maybe, it’s because I haven’t had sugar in so long, I don’t know but I couldn’t stop myself….I ate one…the whole damn thing…I even licked my fingers when I was finished…

The good news is I was able to stop myself at one which if I have to be honest is a record for me…The old IB would have eaten 1/2 of the pan….the bad news is I can no longer say I haven’t had sugar for 6 weeks…

Angus is forbidden to make these again.  EVER
