it's got fruit in it, so it's good for me

I have just made a very exciting discovery: Waitrose sells Cartmel sticky toffee pudding! This tiny shop in the Lake District has been featured on Rick Stein's "Food Heros" and BBC's "Great British Menu" recently, and I made a mental note to check them out the next time we're up there. As if by magic, they have come to me. Surely it's a sign, and as such, I felt it best not to ignore it and purchased some yesterday.

I need a moment to compose myself, as I'm having sticky toffee flashbacks.

It was, very simply put, the best sticky toffee pudding I've ever had. If I wasn't already married, I would have run off with it and made little sticky toffee babies with it. For those of you who aren't aware of this dessert, it's a wonderfully moist sponge cake base (made with dates and more sugar than most humans should consume in a lifetime) doused in a toffee sauce. If you live near a Waitrose and you like sticky toffee pudding, give it a go.

Yeah, yeah...I'll get back to the running this week.
