LDS General Conference weekend. It's a tradition in itself with the anticipation rivaling a Christmas morning. The best part is I know that my family scattered now around United States makes the same plans for breakfast in PJ's, snuggling on the couch with quilts and blankets, listening to General Conference (thank you to the LDS church for an internet broadcast!).
It's a time we can gather together, family, friends and neighbors are invited, for the feeding of both body and soul. The nutrition of the mind and body are of equal importance at this time . . . so I'm planning my General Conference menus today! The one recipe that is always on the menu are the morning General Conference Cinnamon rolls! If you don't have this recipe - you NEED it now! The recipe is meant to be started the evening before - but I do it the morning of all the time also.
Then comes the nourishment of a spiritual nature, peaceful feelings, confirmations of the spirit, answers to questions pondered, and even the words of reprovement leading to thoughts of self improvement. It's all part of the package deal. I love that this frequently leads to stimulating family conversation, testimonies of our Savior, gratefulness for modern prophets who testify of gospel principles that apply to us each day.
Pajamas, quilts, cinnamon rolls, yummy family gathering . . . yes, I think we all look forward to this family time, and every family time . . . because of our knowledge that we can be a forever family. What could be sweeter? Not even those cinnamon rolls :D
But hmmm . . . pondering the rest of the menu . . . thinking crock pot, maybe pulled pork . . .
Would love to hear what your family favorite recipes are!! ??
Wait! I think I'm hearing a little . . . "from the crossroads of the West" . . . beginning . . .
