Make no mistake, it's a bread.
One that inherits it's ever so light hint of sweetness from chocolate morsels and earthy molasses but everything about this shouts B.R.E.A.D.
wonderful. decadent. breakfast. after-school. whenever. bread.
Like I said, sneaky.
As it stands, I am back to Sunday baking. With the kids back to school, the need for healthful after-school snacks with that cold glass of milk, five days a week means that Mum (I speak of moi) is forced to shake off the shackles of procrastination and get a line-up together of yummy healthful baked goods.
Mind you, it's not just for the kids benefiting from this endeavor considering Mr. Hubby & I both sneak in a slice or two before the whole lot is polished off. But it has been a startling revelation that left to my own devices, I would probably drift into a wayward slump of fried eggs and toast, meal after meal as long as I'm left alone buried in my books.
So thank goodness, I have growing boys (and one other fully grown variety) in the house that need feeding & watering to keep me on my toes or there's a very good chance that this blog might have never seen the light of day!
Which of course begs the next question - whatever will we do when they're off to college?
To which my devious mind who is currently far more interested in Jack Reacher of the Lee Child novels, whispers back, "cross that bridge when you come to it".
Amen to that.
