I love the weekends at our house. Early fall through mid-winter my family is all about football and watching our favorite team. Saturday is reserved for college football whereas Sunday is the big show, watching our favorite NFL team take on the enemy head to head. With a busy afternoon of football, I try to take the mornings easy after a busy week of work and school. Lazy mornings call for easy, and sometimes fun, unexpected breakfasts!

My middle child loves cinnamon rolls and so do I. She loves helping me put them on the pan, baking and then frosting. Oh, and eating of course! Not to mention the oven heats up the house and the smell of cinnamon rolls through our house. Cinnamon rolls are a breakfast weakness for me. I could easily eat a whole tray at a time.

What are some of your favorite game day treats?
