monkeying around

So yesterday I saw this recipe online, and promptly started drooling.

I have a lovely friend from home (we'll call her P) who makes a similarly delicious version of monkey bread, and I could only think of her.

Well, that and how amazingly good this odd dish is.

Is it breakfast? Is it dessert? Is it an entire foodgroup?

(Twin tried to tell me that because it has dough in it, it must have wheat, which is a whole grain, and therefore the entire thing must be good for us...isn't she tricky?)

Anyway...back to the story. After trying to wipe the drool off my desk, I promptly emailed the recipe to Twin, telling her something dramatic like, "We MUST make this ASAP."

I made it all of another 4-5 hours, and then halfway through dinner decided that asap meant immediately following dinner. (You would never know that I have incredible self control in other aspects of my life, based on how I talk about eating.)

A quick trip to Target was required, since I don't regularly keep biscuit dough in my house, but apparently Target does not regularly keep buscuit dough either, as they had none. (I decided to improvise and used cresent roll dough instead, which worked out just fine.)

After a very easy prep process and about 40 minutes of baking, the most heavenly of smells filled our house. I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one drooling at that point.

It. was. devine.

And maybe, just maybe, I ate it again for breakfast.
