As I write I am sat in That chair by That hospital bed awaiting the instruction to put on That gown…….
I am in to have a three gnashers removed…..and I am bricking it. All I can think of is throbbing, raw empty sockets and cheeks like a woodchuck. I’ve never seen a woodchuck but I just feel they must have massive fat cheeks. Some years ago I heard someone talk about a terrible condition called dry tooth, I bet I get that too, never mind the toothless old crone look. FFS this aging thing just keeps giving. Not only do I have brows like my Nan but now I have the gum line to match. What if my cheeks cave in? What if I now can’t help but make a smacking sound when I eat?………. At least there’s always, always, Haagen-Dazs.
On the plus side I have just fallen deeply in love with my surgeon. Good looking, suave and kind I was a gonna in about thirty seconds flat. Standing there terribly loose breasted in a dressing gown with jam on, I actually got lost in his amazingly deep and lovely eyes. My husband has the bedside manner of an old school Catholic Nun so all it took was a concerned knitting together of the fabulously well groomed eyebrows and I was already slack jawed without even a whiff of anaesthesia. “Be gentle with me”, I sighed…………..Goodness it seems like there’s life in the old bitch yet ………somewhere…. but definitely not in the next couple of days….. and he definitely wasn’t gentle with me 😬😬😬😬
This is a recipe to cheer even the downest of days. It is always a universal winner and with serious good reason. Soft delicious sponge smothered in a toffee sauce that is to die for. Can be eaten straight out of the oven or made ahead and warmed through in the microwave to suit you sir. Serve it with custard, cream or ice-cream. I try to offer all three. I feel people should not be denied their preference where sticky toffee is concerned. Nothing should stand in the way of optimum pleasure. This is a great Sunday Lunch or Dinner Party dessert as well as perfect for swollen gums.
