15th September - Tim Tam slam

    Newer Older

    One of the best things about stopping breastfeeding is that I no longer feel guilty about dairy treats and am even enjoying cups of tea again (it wasn't the same with soya milk)

    So today I indulged in this rather delicious antipodean treat - a tim tam slam. You bite the opposite corners off the tim tam, then use it as a straw in a hot cup of tea. As soon as you've filled the tim tam with tea, you shove the whole thing into your mouth for an orgasmic warm chocolate ooze. I'd tried it with penguins at home, but it works better with the real thing.

      ooh I remember my brother coming home with a pack of tim tams, just so we could all do this, lol. Great mosaic. I didn't know you'd stopped BFing - congratulations on the last 2 years, and welcome back to the land of milk and chocolate!
