I must admit to having had quite a lovely week so far. And now what is that you say? Eastertime?CHOCOLATE? ......Here's the thing.........I LOVE chocolate, it's quite possible I have a problem actually. So I will be eating vast amounts of the stuff, and no apologising about it either. Lifes to short don't you think, to not allow yourself some naughties every now and then?
I also made some hot cross buns today too. My first shot at these...ever. Though I usually like my baking to be quite quick because I either. 1. forget about things in the oven etc and 2. get bored. With these ( recipe on bbc good food website ) I literally breadcrumbed up the flour and butter then whacked everything into my bread maker to proove.......no cursing the flipping room temperature ( or people opening and closing doors )....no cursing the dogs for jumping up and eating the dough ( they do this alot, any food, even cake cases, nothings safe........little tinkers actaully they usually get called something else, not fit for here ) easypeasy..........
....Or you could just go down to the supermarket and grab 2 for
£2....ahhhhh but then, you wouldnt have wonky crosses, or perfectly warm buns drizzled with golden syrup ( putting on my best Marks and Spencers advert voice) sliced and spread with butter...oooooh I say!!!!
Will the Easter bunny be hopping about your garden, leaving chocolate eggs for lucky finders keepers.........
Will you, like me, have chocolate smeared around your chops now until you see sense, or at least until will power kicks in? ( WHAT is that by the way....will power, I'm not sure I've even heard of it before...)
Here the Q's will be spending Easter Sunday gobbling chocolate, drinking tea, depending on weather playing board games/dog walking/bike riding, eating yorkshire puds...........and feeling full.
Wishing you all a wonderful day...Happy Easter.....enjoy, be happy, eat chocolate........over and out.
