Happy Holidays with Freddy’s Holiday Monkey Bread!

Monkey BreadHey, happy holidays to everyone out there. It’s Jason, your friendly neighborhood Station U 911 radio dispatcher. I just came on shift and have been busy with a whole slew of calls.

Somebody just fell off their roof while decorating their house for Christmas. They’re a fairy and ended up breaking a wing in the fall after getting tangled in the string of lights on the way down. Whew, you’d think they’d have kept the wings out and ready in case something like that happened.

Anyway, Freddy, Station U’s famous zombie chef, just sent over a holiday treat for us to enjoy here at the dispatch center. Its a whole monkey bread loaf! He makes them for everyone this time of year and I couldn’t be happier. It’s still warm and the caramel sauce is all gooey. It’s awesome!

He left the recipe, too. Do you want me to share it with you?

Okay, here it is listed below. It’s easy to make and will be a crowd-pleaser for your holiday family and friends whether it’s Christmas, New Year, or whatever you celebrate this time of year.

Whatever you do, make sure you stay safe and remember to thank your local first responders this time of year. Emergencies don’t take a holiday.

Dean and the rest of the paramedics at Station U know that for sure. Here’s the link to a holiday story about last Christmas that you might want to read or listen to. It’s available as an ebook or audiobook. The awesome Roberto Scarlato narrates the story and it makes a fun family listen with Santa, elves, and holiday shenanigans.
