just a little more love
Things I neglected to do on May 9th:
- acknowledge my 3rd blog-aversary
- make a proper dessert for Matty's birthday
- take a proper photo of said dessert once I finally got around to making it
We went out to an amazing dinner at WP24 Saturday night...
Fun! Delicious! Amazing view!
But I still did promise him a nice breakfast Saturday morning, and dessert whenever we got around to it this weekend. I made him go through my bookmarks, and he ended up finding it in my Breakfast folder: S'mores Bread Pudding.
Now even if I'm not so much of a hedonist that I'd call that breakfast, but I thought the Hot Chocolate Bread contained within would be a delicious alternative to toast - perhaps treated with mascarpone/Nutella/berries a la this. Unfortunately, the bread, while a snap to whip up, was terrifyingly dry and tasteless.
But, but! Throw in some eggs, cream and bake it all in a water bath for another hour, and what emerges is rich, decadent, and definitely birthday-worthy. I didn't realize I was out of graham crackers, and would have enjoyed the texture and flavor contrast, but everything else was so damn ridiculous, I nearly forgot that it was missing an ingredient. Hopefully if this week slows down, and I'm able to have dinner at home, I'll take a better photo, possibly even taking out the blowtorch to toast the marshmallows for added fun!
