Random Tuesday Thoughts: Chocolate
August 17, 2010 § 4 Comments
Okay, so today I was planning on making a chocolate pudding sundae.
Well, I say I. I really mean Daughter.
While I was happily watching television in the living room, Daughter was looking through all the cookery blogs (don’t ask how she accessed all those – she’s a whiz-kid, enough said.
“Mum! Mum! Mum!” She called every two minutes, calling out a new recipe while I reluctantly paused the television. Each recipe required an electric mixer, which I don’t have (call me old-fashioned…).
“OH WOW! MUM!” came the final cry, and squeals of excitement as she scrolled through the recipe, the word ‘electric’ or ‘mixer’ nowhere in sight.
“CHOCOLATE PUDDING SUNDAES!”
Now, admittedly, they do look yummy. Daughter showed me all the photos of them, and I felt drool escaping my lips slightly.
“Can we have it for dessert tomorrow, Mum?” Daughter persisted, and before I could even open my mouth she was running round the room, shouting “Oh my god, I’m so excited! WOW! Look at these!”
My head was in my hands as she paraded round the room, thrusting the laptop screen at everyone’s face.
I have random thoughts every day (sometimes every minute of every day), and today’s was probably this:
I want to make these just so that I can pour them all over her head. After all – it serves 4.
Of course, I am joking. I’d never waste all that chocolate 😉
