naughty and nice

Today, the girls and I were in the mood for some cinnamon rolls.  When I come to think about it, I don't think I have ever made cinnamon rolls from scratch before.  I have always LOVED those ones that come in the rolls in the States.  I can always count on my mom to make them when we visit.  But, remember, we live in Mexico...they don't have all that fancy pre-packed food like in the States.  In most ways, that is a good thing. Unless you are craving something like that.

Since we were going to have something so naughty (remember, I am losing weight, folks!  Cinnamon rolls really aren't the sort of thing I should be eating.), I figured we would try to balance it out a little with a healthy, fun snack.  Fruit kabobs! 

I bought lots of yummy fruit at Costco the other day.  I wish I had bought more.  It is almost all gone.

For the cinnamon rolls, I used this recipe that I found through Pinterest.  I picked the non-yeast version to cut down on the time.  They turned out really well.  And, you can't beat the icing!  If we are doing this, we are doing it all the way!  Icing and all!

The girls were in heaven!

Since early February, I have lost 37 lbs!  I'm on a roll.  And, I only ate half of a cinnamon roll, so I don't think I did too much damage!  And, it was worth it!
