Chocolate + Booze + the weekend.
This is my kinda paaarr-taaayy!!
Cheers to the weekend sweethearts …
After a long week of hustling through the rat race … all a girl wants to do is get reacquainted with some chocolate – a splash ( or two ) of alcohol doesn’t hurt and carbs make it all better.
Technically, I need this bread in my life. I don’t even know if I can call it a bread to be honest, it’s quite cake-like. But, I’m of course thinking ahead … if I call it bread, and due to the fact that I added oats … it’s TOTALLY breakfast food …. or something like that. Can I convince you it’s healthy ? pushing it? – sorry.
I originally made this bread for St. Patty’s day … and then I had to make it twice since. Can I let you in on a little secret ? – Papa LTSL is like a chocolate Hoover Vacuum … he sniffs it out, and consumes it in the blink of an eye. Truth is, I love that man – - I suggest I keep him around for a while.
My dad and I we have a pretty good thing going, I bake … experiment to my hearts desire and he eats. Even the unsuccessful recipes, he’ll at least try. I remember when I was a lot younger, I burnt scrambled eggs ( yes it’s possible … stop laughing) and he ate every bit of it. I’m sure it was the most disgusting thing ever … but he did. If that doesn’t qualify for him to be my superhero … I don’t know what will.
So, shall we get a slice on what all the jazz is about? – Let’s bake!!
