You've seen toffee apples but how about toffee pears? Make the most of this season's most abundant fruit by coating them in crisp toffee and flowers!
Although I am admittedly very clumsy Mr NQN constantly warns me about one thing that I am never in danger of doing.
"Don't fall off the bed," he will say if I am lying on the bed reading or talking to him. Our bed is quite high but it's not of Princess and the Pea proportions.
"I've never fallen off a bed, even when I was little and I slept on the top bunk" I tell him.
And no matter how many times I insist, he will start warn me about falling off the bed. I give him a look and say patiently, "I know where the edge of the bed is and I won't fall off honey, do not worry."
That doesn't mean that I am above giving warnings when they aren't necessary. There is one thing that I do warn him about constantly - when I am making toffee. "Watch out!!" I say as if I am transporting plutonium from the pot to the sink. He always looks at me oddly. He rarely ventures into the kitchen anyway so it really is a moot point.
I bought some pears the other day and I wondered what it would be like to toffee them. They were crisp hard and not quite sweet enough so I dipped them in toffee and affixed some edible flowers to them. The flowers are really for decoration and aren't strictly necessary but I figure most of the things that I eat aren't strictly necessary anyway!
So tell me Dear Reader, do you often eat things because of want over need? And do you ever give warnings that aren't strictly necessary? And have you ever fallen off a bed?
