TGIF Bunn

Ever have one of the those weeks that you were looking forward to.  The kind of week where you thought you were really gonna kick some ass/arse, only you never did?

That's how my week went.

I'm behind on just about everything this week.  And I have to say, I'm really happy it's the weekend.  Even better, Tim gets THREE days off in a row.  His only request is calzones and a trip to the Barnes cafe.  Simple enough.  Might even throw in almond pizzelles, just because he loves them.

Meanwhile, here was last night's dessert.  I had extra dough so I tossed together a single (but nice sized), cinnamon bunn.  For the top I mixed local maple syrup, icing sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla, to taste.

It was so flippin' good.

  9. God that looks awesome. You know, anytime you are passing through TN, just stop by, I will get the kitchen set up for you and you can stay as long as you like. It will only cost you some time cooking for me.

    Tim is a lucky guy.

    1. This is a good way to travel, just making people food as payment for staying a night.

      Hope your exercise was good yesterday. I got to walk the dogs again. Woohoo. Slowly but steady.

  14. I bet it flipping was. That look marvelous. I concur with Susan Gourley/Kelley's comment. Oh, now that you've stirred up my sweet tooth (not that it needed much stirring - LOL!) I am off to my local bakery. Have a cheerful weekend. Cheers!! P. S. Are you a pastry chef? If not, you might have missed your sweet calling.
