...got me this morning. Let's call this breakfast shall we?!
An apple doughnut. My favourite. I can't the remember the last time I had one of these and this was perfect, slightly crispy on the outside, soft apple on the inside, and sweet icing on top!
After dropping Izzy at school, Toby and I went to Lidl to pick up a few things (veg, soy sauce & dates - I managed to resist even looking at any aisles that weren't on the list!) and Toby discovered how to slide out of his pushchair by flattening himself and slipping under the tray!! I wouldn't mind him walking if he actually walked in a straight line, but he spends the whole time trying to wriggle out of my hand to run after random dogs and/or babies!
So a bribery from the bakery it was...
I was happy that we made it all the way home with him sitting down in his pushchair, and Toby was happy that, as usual, he had got his own way (well, kind of, I think cake beats walking in Toby-land!)
The last time I had to resort to a bakery bribe was actually last Monday (although I didn't buy anything for myself that time) - I guess Toby must suffer from "Monday morning" syndrome like the rest of us!!
Oh, and the reason for needing to buy dates? I'm back on the fudge baby train! I've actually been eating them again for a while, but I had a couple of tubs in the freezer to work my way through before needing to make any new ones. It was time to replenish my supplies last night though...
I actually found myself standing in the kitchen at about 7pm on Sunday night, talking out loud to myself, slowly, through clenched teeth - "my.husband.has.hidden.my.food.processor" - haha, not something I thought I'd ever need to say! Liam feels justified in his hiding though - apparently he put it away in a cupboard about 2 weeks ago and I've only just noticed...but I've informed him that now I'm back into fudge babies it needs to remain out on the counter for easy access!! ;-)
Have you tried fudge babies/raw dough balls before? What is your favourite flavour? The above are chocolate chip cookie dough, but I think my favourite that I've made so far were chocolate macaroon babies - they don't seem to be on Katie's flavour list any more but they were just dates, coconut butter and cocoa powder, delicious and so fudgy once frozen! I love having these little bite-sized treats in the freezer. I can pretend that way that it slows the eating process down slightly (out of sight, kind of out of mind!) and it makes the babies even richer than at room temperature :-)
