Year 3 Christmas Brunch (and the Best Cinnamon Rolls!!)

The semester is coming to a close! Quickly! A little too quickly for me. I leave in less than three weeks and won't be back in Halifax until next September. Which also means maybe not seeing my housemates, aka Haligonian sisters, for a while (insert sad and crying face emojis). One of our best friends is also leaving next semester, only she won't be coming back - her travels (well, education) are taking her to Australia! To finish the semester off, we of course had a grand meal.

We didn't really have a brunch last year because it was just too busy for us all (and we would all be together again in three weeks), but we did send the year off with an Easter dinner. I wrote about it before and I have to reiterate: it was delicious. There was major food coma in the house after. This time, as two of us would not be returning, we HAD to do something. Enter: brunch. 

Another food coma-inducing meal, I assure you. I made cinnamon buns from Sally's Baking Addiction. Oh dear lord, are they ever good. I wanted to do an overnight recipe because I knew I would not be able to commit too much time in one period - I'm either all in or all out so if I didn't homemake something good, I would not be satisfied - although, it still took longer than I thought, ha. We had eggs Benedict, waffles, fruit salad, a plethora of waffles, roasted potatoes, mimosas (I, however, abstained due to schoolwork), and enough bacon to feed three of our house. 

I want to improve my cinnamon roll making skills (and time) so I'm going to try to make them once or twice when I'm home. Perhaps try to find a vegan recipe as well? I don't know, I'm inspired! 

I am really starting to get excited for Christmas - I just have to survive through the next week first... Please wish me luck!
