MONKEY BREAD!

Mr. Beers and Mr. Bobo were invited to a pot luck Sunday brunch not too long ago. Some of the guests brought really tasty and beautiful foodie type stuff. Stuff with sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese. Really good stuff.  We enjoyed the great food and the wonderful people in attendance. Mr. Bobo and Mr. Beers contributed a fruit salad and some monkey bread. Mr. Bobo had never made monkey bread, but he had heard about it, and wanted to give it a shot. It was fun to make.
