A few weeks ago I shared a parenting tool: Make Liam laugh. Sometimes, on the verge of a meltdown I tell him I'm going to feed him a poop sandwich and he immediately cracks a smile and calms down so I can talk to him. A few weeks later and he's saying "poop san-wech" ALL. DAY. LONG. He says it to strangers, he shouts it in the car and he asks for it at every meal. Always with a big, hearty laugh. I mostly ignore the craziness and occasionally ask him to stop. The obsession has gotten out of hand...so, I decided to make him a poop sandwich. If you can't beat 'em join 'em, right?
A loaf of pound cake
Whipped Cream and Chocolate shavings for garnish
I used Bobby Flay's recipe for the chocolate mouse, found here on Foodnetwork.com. The pound cake was from a local bakery (make sure you get vanilla or butter cake, not lemon). Whip some extra cream and make your own chocolate shavings for the top and enjoy with a cup of coffee.
I was concerned that Liam wouldn't get the joke and my efforts would go unappreciated but he laughed the whole time. Plus, it was so yummy.
Mmmmm. Poop sandwiches!
