Pre-heat Oven

So lately all I've been doing is sleeping and eating, throw in some sore boobs and it's not the kinda party I care for.
If I didn't know any better I'd say there was a bun in my empty oven, but I don't think so although my sister would tell me otherwise.

Anyways, I'm very lazy today.
The only thing I've managed to do was get an appointment for my Gp and see if I can get a referral for a Ob-gyn..
I called both Eating Disordered support groups also, the first had no answer, and the second the same thing.
How discouraging.
I feel like giving up on the idea really, but I'm just crabby today.
I'm having a bad body image day, I feel myself expanding and I hate it.

So in honor of upcoming Mother's Day which I will be spending alone with my kid, I will be making my famous Monkey Bread.
How about that in my oven instead..

So I'm sharing the recipe, and it's not figure friendly so eat at your own risk.

Hey, hey we're the.. Monkey Bread Recipe



3 tubes buttermilk biscuits

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

3/4 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon vanilla


Open the biscuit tubes (trying not to flinch when they pop) and then quarter. Your kids can use butter knives to cut the biscuits into bits or, if you've got young ones, they can tear the pieces into smaller pieces. Go ahead and preheat the oven to 350 F.

Fill a plastic zip-top bag with the plain sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Enlist the kids to shake-a-shake the bits in the cinnamon sugar, remove, and then drop into the bundt pan.

While things are shaking away, melt the butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon together until things are bubbly. You can also sprinkle in any leftover cinnamon sugar from the zip-top bag.

Pour the melted butter mixture over the sugar-cinnamon covered biscuit bits and then pop into the hot oven for 30-minutes.

Remove the bundt pan from the oven and let cool for 10-minutes. Place a large plate over the top of the bundt pan and carefully flip over. Let the big oeey-goooooey Sticky Monkey Bread rest for a few minutes before digging in.
