The weekend, (very) briefly

Long busy weekends always seem to mean fewer pictures, somehow. And they all involve food. I guess we know where my priorities lie.

Breakfast at Tavern. I had a very strong latte and one perfect salted caramel macaron. D had huckleberry bread pudding.

I can go to the bakery and pick out an enormous slab of the most garish cake they make and then bring it home and eat the entire thing by myself, in bed. And call it lunch.

  1. A small child I knew once said the best thing about being a grown-up is that you can have juice right before bed. He clearly didn't know about this particular delight.

  12. Growing up, we were always allowed a slice of birthday cake for breakfast on the day following our birthday. It was always a huge treat! It's a tradition I've continued into adulthood :)

    The huckleberry bread pudding (what's left of it) looks absolutely divine! I've never even heard of such a treat, but it sounds delicious!

  32. That is one of the best things about being a grown-up. I have been eating Nutella sandwiches several times a week recently, sometimes even twice a day. The only shame is that as an adult I am fully aware of the consequences of indulging :(
