Breakfast in silence

half_chocolate_half_maple_bar_with_buttercream_filling

Half chocolate half maple bar with buttercream filling from Tulip Pastry Shop in St. John’s neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.

I’ve had 2 of these in the past three days. But I walk 3 blocks to the bakery to get them. I think that evens it out. Plus, I have to walk 3 blocks back to my house. So after a few more donuts, I’ll probably be super buff and fit and practically a bodybuilder. I think that’s how it works. Shut up.

In my defense, this isn’t all I had for breakfast… I also got a slice of brandied pear & dark chocolate pie with candied ginger streusel from Random Order Coffeehouse & Bakery. It has… fruit… and… ginger, which as everyone knows, is much ballyhooed for its countless health benefits. Shut up.

This looks delicious! I am adding these to my list of ‘must bakes’.

Haha, damn you. I have to venture out and find things for this blog. Then you just walk into your kitchen and make it yourself.

Go that man. That’s exactly how it works. Furthermore, I think the rules say if you were to jog to the bakery, you could justify an extra donut or two :-)

Hurray for countless healthy benefits! XD
But there is something to be said about eating after walking long distances.

@Dan: Haha, true. But I’d like to avoid the image of me running to a bakery, tongue hanging out, like I’m trying to get the last maple bar before they’re all gone.

@Yvonne: I walk a lot more frequently in Portland, but for much shorter distances than I’d walk in the bay area. I don’t know if it evens out. But I’ll assume it does.
