Pineapple Cinnamon Sticky Buns

pineapple cinnamon sticky buns

It was Windows System Administration class at 9.30am, and my mind keeps asking about what-to-cook-today. I wish it does happen the other way round too. Why is it that I always think about food when coding, but never think about code while cooking?

I've been craving for pineapples lately. But, pineapples.. with cake? Nah. Don't want any cake at the moment. Pudding? Nah. I'm not looking for anything creamy. Bread? Hmm, nice option. Oh, and some cinnamon. Sticky cinnamon buns. With pineapple? Can't wait to get home!
