paddington bear's favorite marmalade buns

oh, look. it's thanksgiving week.

if you despise this time of year as much as i do, you might appreciate the fact that i'm being nice and, unlike other bloggers who are on abbreviated schedules this week, giving you some stunt posts to read over the holidays. maybe read them when you get the urge to strangle that one uncle? you know the one. oh, and your brother's new wife. god.

maybe these posts will help? erm, maybe not. 'cause i'm using turkish delight and treasure hunts: delightful treats and games from classic children's booksas my source.

i'll be honest with you. this book does have some nice ideas but, jesus christ, is it twee. i felt as if i should wear a romper, listen to feist and post bad op art on a tumblr as a prerequisite to reading. if you can deal with this...issue...then, by all means, proceed.  there are good recipes to be had.

recipes like paddington bear's* favorite marmalade buns! these are the ingredients you will need.

not required but fun, food dye.

slightly off topic, i have decided to start referring to cooling baked goods as being "chill".

ha. no i haven't. that would be incredibly stupid and not nearly precious enough.

anyway, great recipe! particularly if you use a good quality marmalade. (the kind i used is from the uk. ooooh, fancy. it's also shredless but that's because he's in wales. *ba doom ching*. (ugh.))

if you happen to have any buns left over, they fit quite nicely into a little bear from peru's suitcase right alongside his leftover bacon.

tomorrow on kidlit stunt blogging:  i'll tackle something from heidi. yes, heidi.

*links will take you to amazon. i am an amazon affiliate. should you purchase either turkish delight and treasure hunts or a bear called paddington through these links, i will receive monetary compensation.
