When you look in your fridge and realise that you have 4 tins of croissant dough which expire tomorrow, there is only ONE solution. You haul out Pioneer Woman's recipe for Apple Dumplings. And make them. As you watch the enormous amount of butter melting, you also realise that there is no possible way that the cooked dumplings will be staying in your house, because in the unlikely event you manage to eat all 12 of them, you will immediately have a heart attack.
Well, I did consider that. So the instant they came out of the oven, I popped them into bowls and toottled around the village dropping them off at friends, with a warning that they were not exactly slimming. I kept two for myself. One for tonight and one for tomorrow. They are delicious. If you haven't tried them yet, I suggest you run right over, print out the recipe and get cooking, people. Perfect for a chilly autumn evening. With ice cream. Or cream. Or both, but we will not go there right now.
I would have taken a photo, but you see, I would have weakened and probably kept 6 which would have been a disaster. I am sure you all understand.
Did I mention that the Flat Princess arrived last week for a visit? She is currently reclining on my couch, waiting for a break in the weather so I can show her the sights around here. Maybe tomorrow. And then she will be eager to move on to her next destination. She could do with something warm to wear at the moment. Photos tomorrow, and then you can all fight about where she heads off to next!
How ironic that I should talk about the FLAT Princess at the same time I am urging you all to bake something which will result in waistlines expanding instantly. Hmph.
Right. I need to go and fire up the recession heaters so I can snuggle under the fleece and watch TV while I read. I am a star at multi-tasking.
That is all. For now.
