I'm so ready for Conference this weekend. Having the opportunity to hear the Prophet, Apostles and other divinely-called Church leaders speak is such a great blessing. I can't wait to learn, be edified and strengthen my faith in Jesus Christ.
And I'm not going to lie. There are the rolls.
Several years ago - maybe all the way back to the Days of Provo? - I got a hold of my favorite roll recipe. The one my seminary teacher used to make for us when we were good. It happened to be right around Conference time when I started working with it, getting my technique right and what have you. And thus a tradition was born. No conference weekend can begin without what are now known as Conference Rolls. My kids have a Pavlovian association between hearing President Monson's voice and tasting a gooey caramel roll melting in their mouths.
Maybe this makes The Word sweeter to their taste?
So that's what I'll be doing tonight - getting out my Kitchen Aid and going to town with some dough.
What are your Conference Weekend traditions?
My kiddos all hopped up on Conference Rolls last October...
