When we got there my travelling friend was home already thanks to an offsite ending early. This was nice because we were able to catch up a little and my son got to play with the dogs. As we conversed, someone became ravenous. Not me, it was the 20 month old. My friend asked and I okayed the offering of a fig newton.
You would have thought he had not eaten for weeks.
The good thing about this is I am always trying to figure out what things I can keep on me at all times that he can have in case he gets hungry. I assume most parents become a mini mart for their toddler so this is not foreign territory to most.
Now, a neighbor had dropped off some fresh figs the other day and I was giddy. My husband is not much of a fan, but he, like his progeny, loves fig newtons too. This sent me on a quest to find a baking recipe requiring fresh figs. I found one and yes, it rocks.
I added cinnamon and ground up pecans and for instead of sugar I used honey. My son, my husband and my neighbors who gave us the figs loved this recipe and I think you will too.
I have sent the men to Trader Joe's while I have an early lunch and catch up on stuff that needs to get done. Have a beautiful day!
