8.31 Guilty Pleasures - Croissant Time

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the thirty-first day of each month is "Guilty Pleasures."
****************************
Two or three times a week I work at our office in Madison. Probably about half of the time I go there, I succumb to the temptation of a nearby bakery, order myself a croissant, get a Diet Coke from the market next door, and spend five minutes in blissful food ecstasy with my gluten and sugar substitute. 

I know each and every time that this bread is going to put me over my calorie limit for the day, that I should be substituting that Diet Coke for water, and that I am never going to look like the person I want to look like in the mirror if I keep going into that storefront.
But you know what? Life isn't worth living if you don't have an occasional bite of food that is so delicious it makes you forget everything else for a moment or two.

Update on The Expensive Meal: This recipe was a fail. Dr. BB took one bite of the beef and refused to eat anymore. I ate the hunk in front of me, but for all that marinating and slow cooking, it was simultaneously dry and tasteless.  I may never get him to try another sauerbraten recipe, damn it all.

  1. I remember the last time you were here, and we stood in front of the North Market, eating as much bread as we could get. You just kept muttering "glutennnnn" like that dude in Lord of the Rings.
