My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard…
Actually, it’s my sister-in-law Sandi’s milkshake, not mine. She told me the other day that her 7-year-old son pointed to her chest and said, “Are you ever going to use those things again?”
His little brother Eli hasn’t nursed in a good 3 years. This kids got a long memory and a minimalist attitude apparently. Throw out that useless bosom, already, Mom. Geez.
Or maybe he’s just confused about this whole breast concept. Years ago, he came up to his dad and said, “I found the things that hold the things that feed Eli,” and held up his mom’s bra.
Very astute, I must say.
On Halloween we had a doughnut party. We made the Pioneer Woman’s doughnuts and set up a glaze bar where people could top their own. We had chocolate, nutella, vanilla, and apple cider. The apple cider glaze stole the show, if you ask me. It was just reduced apple cider whisked with powdered sugar. It was out of control good, I wanted to drink the stuff.
Then a few weeks later Eric saw some spiced cider in the fridge and said he wanted to make a shake with it. (My husband is addicted to milkshakes. Like really. He probably makes them 3 times a week.) So I told him to reduce the apple cider first…and this shake was born.
It is pretty incredible. The flavor is so concentrated that you get all the apple-cidery goodness without watering down your shake. The salted caramel just puts it over the top. I’ve tried it with and without the caramel, and I like it both ways, so if you’re not feeling the caramel or don’t have any, leave it out no prob.
Oh, and I don’t care that it’s record-breaking cold in your town right now. Man up. It’s never too cold for shakes.
P.S. I just added Pin it buttons to all my photos, so now you can easily pin whichever photo you want. Woohoo!
