For those of you who know me (even in a virtual sense), you’ll definitely know my Guilty Pleasure is ‘Chocolate’. I was knicknamed ‘Chocoholic’ as a child and I have no plans to be cured … Ever!
You see, from time to time HonieDaddy has the hard task of attending meetings that are sometimes not so difficult to feel comfortable in like The Rheged Centre, or San Carlo in Manchester or yesterday’s comfort zone:
Looks painful, doesn’t it? No! I know. I have to say it beats my: lounge slumming; shopping in Sainsbury’s; lunch in the car (as it was yesterday); School Run and stopping myself from
killing harming the kids who are driving me bonkers, while trying to make the dinner.
I was rewarded for my slummy, rushy, stressy day when HonieDaddy had finished work.
On his return from a hard day’s graft yeterday – HonieDaddy had brought home a box of goodies – Oh yes, they are very goody indeed!
- Apple and cinnamon cake with ginger icing
- Chocolate lollipops for the kids
- A box of chocolate fondant cup cakes
- A lush little bag of real chocolate for making ‘hot chocolate’
I am at a loss as to how I shall produce pictures of the cake – we ate it! But it was divine and the ginger icing had moist ginger crystals in. I have no idea what happened to the lollipops either – they disappeared before I could take a photo of them.
