When I was a kid over the summer I would spend a week at my cousins house. They had a house full of kids, 8 to be exact, pretty much back to back from toddler to teenager.

It wasn’t a huge house either, they were packed in there. One thing they did have that I remember was a big deep freezer in the basement. My aunt would bring up a few packs of frozen sweet rolls and hang them outside on the clothesline to be heated by the sun.

They didn’t have a microwave back then, and it was too hot to turn on an oven.

Well I had never seen such a thing, food hanging on a clothesline, in the plastic wrap and the glaze getting all gooey and running down the plastic. It doesn’t sound very appetizing, but for some reason back then, those things were the best.

This recipe brings back memories of carefree summer days back when kids played outside and ran around in the sprinkler and used our imagination to make believe whatever your little heart desired.

So have some coffee and some sweet rolls and reminisce with a good friend while sharing some happy memories.

Hopefully have a few laughs and make sure the kids get some play time outside to use their imaginations and make some happy memories!
