A brilliant idea . . .if I do say so!!

First of all, I'm not sure if these "rolls" are carried all over the country or just in the south. These are Sister Schubert's blueberry rolls and Sister Schubert is actually from Alabama! She made rolls for an event at her church and then started making more and more rolls and now she is famous!!

We just finished a study of the seven deadly sins in our Sunday School class and we have a guest speaker next Sunday so I needed a "stand alone" kind of lesson for today. Years ago, we played Bible trivia one Sunday and it was quite funny. I decided it was time to do that again. So I decided I had better feed folks, too! We stopped at the Pig in Bluff Park last night on the way home from dinner and purchased three pans of Sister Schubert's rolls - one pan of blueberry and two pans of "pigs" (little sausages inside a roll). I got up this morning and popped them into the oven while I was getting ready for church. We leave home around 8:00 a.m. and church starts at 8:45 and then Sunday School is at 10:00. Everytime we have taken food, I find it so hard to keep the food warm. I've used my pyrex carriers with the heated pads but I needed some way to transport three pans.

I had a brilliant idea.  The moment that I removed each pan of rolls from the oven, I quickly wrapped the pan securely with foil.  Then I slid the first pan down into the bottom of my crockpot.  Perfect fit!!  I wrapped the other two pans tightly in foil and slipped them on top.  I put the blueberry ones on top since they have icing and I didn't want the weight of two pans of "pigs" on top smushing the icing to the foil.

Look at that - three pans of rolls - perfect fit!!
I popped the top on the crockpot and Mark carried it to the car.  When we got to the church, we plugged the crockpot in and turned it on low.  After church, I removed the first pan and it burned my fingers!!!  Perfect!!  They were as hot as if they had just been removed from the oven.  I actually chuckled to myself thinking of how many times I've carried Sister Schubert's rolls and tried to keep them warm . . . and it was as simple as one, two, three!!

  1. That is a great idea. I've never used my crock pot to keep something warm, but my sister does it all the time. I was completely impressed the first time she shared that little gem with me. She's much more domestic than me, though!
