I've never really been much of a pastry person; I'm more of a salt than sweets kind of girl.
(If you've read my blog regularly or know me in "real life" then you know -- I'm all about peanut butter, cheese and Doritos.)
And yet, I've discovered a new love.
Let me be the first to say that I have discovered an appreciation for scones!
The day before yesterday, before heading home - I had a headache and I hadn't eaten all day so I figured I'd stop at this little Irish bakery a few doors down from the new store. I saw they had scones and so I asked what kind; they had somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 different types! I wasn't sure what to try, but I went with a pineapple coconut one and let me tell you, it was amazing.
I know picking up a scone eating habit could be a problem -- unless of course I run them off (which, I am running a 5k this weekend - can't wait!) but there are worse problems to have. I think I'll try to keep my indulgences to once a week.
(Except for this week. I'm meeting my sister tomorrow a.m. for a quick cup of coffee and I may just have to try a different variety of scone while we're there. Maybe the orange and chocolate chip one...?)
