It's been a busy week, so this is going to be a rather short post. This week's recipe choice for Tuesdays with Dorie was picked by Confessions of a Tangerine Tart. It uses whoppers and malted milk mix (like Olvaltine) along with a bunch of chocolate and all sorts of good stuff.
I never tried Ovaltine before - I've never had it growing up. With some of the extra, I decided to mix some up to give it a try...it reminded me of sweet potatoes for some reason. Now I love sweet potatoes, they're great to eat...but drinking and having that same flavor? Doesn't work. I'm a little confused by the whole thing.
So Tuesdays with Dorie - cookies last week, cookies this week, and cookies again next week (which I've already made) PLUS someone brought a giant tin of butter shortbread cookies into work. I never thought it could happen, but I'm a bit cookied out. I think my sweet tooth seppuku'd for the shame of getting tired of sweets.
