Kind Neighbours

on Jun 08, 2016 @ 06:04 pm

They're doing construction at the bottom of my street and the main street. As a result, we have to take our garbage containers to the front; I didn't know and when I went out to put garbage in I noticed the bins were gone. Then I noticed they were out front. I left them. Someone had brought them to the front for me and then the next morning they were brought back. A good neighbour for sure. I already have a nice neighbour that insists on cutting my grass and will take no money. I made hima dozen gooey cinnamon buns. When I find out who the other culprit?? is I'll make him/her some buns also.

I have some really great neighbours on either side of me! They're both really thoughtful families who always lend a hand when I need it. On the other hand, there are some not so nice neighbours a little farther down the street. I guess they can't all be good! I'm thankful for the nice ones and ignore the mean ones :)

Can you imagine if all your neighbours would catch on about the cinnamon buns and all do good deeds for you? You'll be in business in no time LOL! Kidding aside, they were really kind to help you out! We also have great neighbours and like to pay it forward to them as well.

P.S. I wouldn't mind a good cinnamon bun recipe, if you'd like to share! :)

Icing-2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp. milk, icing sugar (or cream cheese for a better icing) Now, mix water, yeast,i tbsp sugar and leave for 5 min. In one bowl mix1/2 cup sugar, butter,eggs,. Add to yeast, stir in warm milk, add flour a little at a time.Knead till it's not sticky Let rise till double about an hour. punch down.Separate into two mounds. roll out the first one to a rectangle. Spread with brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and roll up. Then cut and place in a greased tin. Do the same to the other.Slice and bake at 350 for about 20 min. I like to add raisins and nuts to it sometimes. Ice them when they are warm.***Eat and smile***

That is a great "it takes a village " story. Having great neighbours is so important to us, and I try to do nice things for people in our building. The other day, when I ended up with a flat, I had 4 neighbours out there providing assistance in different ways. And thanks dollysgramma for that awesome recipe, I will try it on my next weekend off!

Glad you both like the recipe. i do have different recipes for cinnamon rolls. I love baking. I hope you both enjoy.

How sweet :) on Jun 09, 2016 @ 02:25 am

@DG You sound like a great neighbor yourself!
I have pretty decent neighbors too, thankfully. I live in the city but my street consists of mostly single family homes. It's an older neighborhood and much further down my street is a rather unsavory part of town - a lot of homelessness and shelters, etc. There are two H.A. members that live across the street from me so even though it's not the best neighborhood, it's relatively safe. They don't bring or allow drama to their neighborhood - they like to fly under the radar.

It's pretty late here in B.C. but all I could think about is those fresh baked cinnamon rolls! Drools :)

If I was your neighbour I'd find stuff to do to help you out. Can't beat a good cinnamon bun!
