A monkey we met in Costa Rica!
Let me start off by asking this question: Who HASN'T had Monkey Bread?
It seems almost sinful to not have experienced this Southern pull-apart bread in your childhood but, alas, Matt had never had it. Growing up in Houston, I'm not sure how h never had it but, crazier things have happened (see also the fact that Houston has set record breaking temperatures for like a gazillion days in a row, Kim K's engagement ring, etc). It's still a shame that he went nearly 26 years without knowing about this ridiculously good "breakfast" (pshhh, yeah right, it's like dessert) item! Well, not to worry, I remedied that a couple weeks ago when I woke up early on a Sunday morning and had monkey bread on my mind. I ran to the grocery store, grabbed what I needed and headed home to make it.
I was so excited that I called Matt (and woke him up) and asked him to preheat the oven for me before I got back!
This post, much like the last, and regrettably so, will not contain the recipe.
I will, however post ASAP, seeing as some of you may not have had monkey bread either. But don't tell me if you haven't. I don't want to hear it! :)
Recipe coming soon. And hey! I used Splenda and reduced-fat biscuits, so...it's almost like it doesn't have calories. ALMOST.
