Even though I have been craving salt... every now and again I crave something sweet. For the most part I take care of those cravings myself because I LOVE all things in DOUGH form. I think I have mastered making cookie dough in record time. (Around 5 minutes). However, from time to time I like to rely on "baked goods" not made by myself to satisfy my cravings because sometimes it is nice to just sit on your heiny and not have to move off the couch to curb a craving...
In enters obliging husband. My husband came out of his hovel.. I mean office... tonight at about 9:58 p .m.at which time I uttered something about wanting my favorite GO TO baked good... SVENHARDS. Ever heard of em? Here....
Not just ANY Svenhards will do.. .They MUST BE BUTTER HORNS! I am not a huge fan of any kind of FRUITY filling. Just give it to me plain... with butter on it. In my personal (but incredibly knowledgeable) opinion this is by FAR one of the best baked goods that you can buy and eat and love. Oh, throw a little butter on it, (My husband once said it is like putting butter on a Krispy Kreme) throw it in the microwave for 25 seconds and you have ONE AMAZING BAKED GOOD ITEM WARM OUT OF THE OVEN. I mean, Microwave. Thanks to my mom for starting the warmed butter horn with BUTTER tradition. I will most certainly carry it forward.
Back to the Husband. Being the GREAT husband that he is... he offered to go get me some. No, he didn't offer... he just grabbed his keys off the counter and left. At 10:42... I began to wonder where he might be? I mean, the store isn't THAT far away. I called him on his cell to find that he had visited 7 stores... 7 STORES! To find my beloved Svenhards to no avail. He gave his all... he did his best... I told him to come home. (He still brought me a baked good so I didn't have to go without) NOW THAT IS LOVE I TELL YOU. Thank you honey, you are the best. I guess I better start stocking them as food storage because there seems to be a shortage around these parts.
I don't even feel a bit bad about it because:
A. He wanted to and
B. This is the last chance I have to get ANY pregnancy related TLC that I can get!
So, I am going to soak it ALL IN (and pack it all on)!
