We've been talking a lot about mistakes and bad decisions at our house lately.
With two 13 year olds, a 15 year old and a 9 year old, we have our hands full with those "talks" daily. But really, as long as you take responsibility and tell the truth in our house, then you won't get into real "trouble."
People make mistakes. You learn from them and you move on.
But sometimes you make a mistake, but the end result is better than what you had originally had planned.
Which is a great life lesson, courtesy of some bread dough.
The other day I made two batches of bread dough. One wheat bread to be made into hot rolls for dinner, and one white dough that was to be made into cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
One of the kids wanted to help, so I sat reading and told them to go ahead and roll it out, add the butter, craisins, sugar and cinnamon. That they did.
To both batches
and their mistake has been feeding us all week with three full pans of Craisin-Pecan Cinnamon Rolls.
