This past weekend I went to my father-in-law’s 90th birthday party! We went down to the family cottage and I brought my cinnamon buns. I wish I could call them mine but the original recipe can be found here. I did come up with my own method of making them more diabetic-friendly as well as creating the dough in the breadmaker and letting it rise overnight. I baked them that morning and when I showed up, they were still warm!
I thought this photograph captured the food quite nicely at a Maritime birthday party by the ocean. Giant pots of mussels and loads of fresh fruit ready for the taking.
For me, food is one of the nicest ways to show you care about somebody. These cinnamon buns are my father-in-law’s favourite and his wife came up to me at the end of the party and whispered to me, “He ate THREE of them!”
That is success for this foodie.
What is your favourite celebration food to make? How do you bring love to the party?
