Do-Nut Eat My Doughnut!

5 Mar

Check out these fellas!

 

Whenever I visit Camden, this marvelous doughnut stall located at one of the various market entrances, always catches my eye, and up until recently I’ve managed to successfully resist their sweet siren calls to me… This time, however, I gave in. When picking a doughnut (which are absolutely huge by the way, and consist of many exciting, innovative flavours and fillings) I thought:

‘To hell with it. I’m buying a doughnut for God’s sakes- what’s the use in trying to scrimp? No, I’ve got to pick something really dirty.’

So, evidently, that’s what I did. Let me introduce you, ladies and gentleman, to my ‘Triple Killer Chocolate Doughnut with Chocolate Filling’!

 

 

Ah, I think I just died… In fact, that’s practically what did happen when I ate the doughnut, as I was convinced I could eat the whole thing in one sitting (again, please take note that these doughy treats are just a tad larger in size than your usual, everyday doughnut; and moreover, this was three times more sweet than my poor, unsuspecting stomach could take, thank you very much!).

In all fairness, I suppose I was warned by the title… The ‘Killer’ part, obviously.

In addition, a friend of mine decided to test the waters on the Camden Churros situation. These churros, in contrast to the traditional Spanish churros which are served longer, thinner and with a pot of hot, melted chocolate for dipping, are served instead with a rich chocolate filling piped through the middle.

I’m so tempted to use the word ‘groovy’ at this point, but I understand that that would be incredibly weird, perhaps a little nerdy, and uncomfortable for all of us.

Anyway, my friend’s verdict sounded a little like this: ‘I could probably live on this monster alone for two days and still not be near finishing it- good stuff!‘ Waters safely tested!

Finally, I’ve just activated my Pinterest account! I had heard horror stories of waiting lists and the impossibility of receiving an invite once requested; however, in my case it thankfully seemed to be an easy enough process, and now I’m a member! Having said that, I don’t entirely know how to use it yet, and I haven’t started ‘pinning’ (Haha, that sounds funny… *Cough* Ok, I’m obviously too immature to be writing blogs on WordPress) anything yet, but when I do you’ll know about it!

Happy blogging y’all!

Remember Me?

15 Aug

Hello there!

 I know it’s been a while since my last post… like 2 weeks approximately? Well I’m sorry, I’ve been marooned in the countryside for the past fortnight with great literally no internet connection. YAY! So to make up for the recent blog silence, I am currently preparing my 1st ever ‘5 Things’ post which has sort of become my baby due to all the work I’m putting in to it. Therefore I will hopefully be able to birth it soon- wait, ‘birth’ sounds weird. Is it weird? I mean, people use the word ‘pregnant’ as a metaphor all the time in poems and shit, like “The clouds were pregnant with rain…” Eurgh, yes it really does sound weird. The clean country air’s polluted my brain, so, apologies.

Anyway, in the mean time I’ve spoilt myself again with the latest tasty treat I stumbled across this week. I went to lunch at Belgique (can’t say much about the savoury food but the desserts and cakes are lovely and look amazing!) and had this-

                                                   

I don’t remember the exact name of it, but I can tell you that it’s a fruity macaroon thing… Yeah, I’m really selling it with that description! It was very nice, however the only thing I would say is that the macaroon was less almondy and more nothing-y, sorry! But regardless, the texture of the macaroon was lovely, and the fresh fruit and tangy outer-layer of the macaroon were gorgeous!

Ok that’s all for today, and I’ll be blogging more frequently now that I’ve returned from my travels (makes it sound exciting- it wasn’t). I promise to not go missing without warning again… or I’ll at least wait awhile before I do.

Happy Blogging!
