My Diet’s Expiration

Biscuits, scones, cornbread
Rye, white, wheat, pumpernickel
Butter, clotted cream

English muffins split
Bagels, French, Italian
Matters not to me

Such a temptation
Tantalizing and fragrant
Willpower escapes

Achilles’ tendon
My diet’s expiration …
Life’s too fleeting!

Ahhh … yum …

More, please!
Just in case, it may not be obvious, I LOVE LOVE LOVE bread … in any shape and size … particularly “hot, just out the oven”. My weaknesses are biscuits and scones! Give me either, with a pottered mug of dark roasted French drip coffee, or fragrant hot tea — I am in heaven!

    There is nothing so delicious as a toasted piece of bread smothered in butter and topped with jam! I love your ode to bread.

    though I havent tasted most of the things you mentioned it all sounds yummy 🙂


    • Becca Givens says:

      Well, I don’t know whether to tell you that is a blessing or not! All because, the entire group is yummy!! Then again, if I didn’t know what any of them tasted like, I wouldn’t have the dilema of staying away from them! 🙂 Thank you for your visit. 🙂


  4. I just gained five pounds reading this,lol! Good stuff!


  5. Le-Leigh says:

    Well, let’s see… Bergeron’s hot french bread, crispy in the brown paper with butter and cane syrup. There is not a heaven without it!! I just gained 5#.

  7. Mike Patrick says:

    I love bread right out of the oven with real butter melting on top. I feel no need to diet. I’ve accepted my fate and am eagerly digging my grave with that butter knife.


  8. Pat Cegan says:

    Ah, delightful. Your visit to Panera was inspirational. I loved that place, too. Bread is not fattening because I use making it as a meditation. lol Wait until you come here, we will make glorious breads together! love you! pat

    Here, here! I am in concord with you here. Bread…such is thy weakness!


  10. Achilles’ tendon….well I can’t blame you 🙂
    Great write Becca, loved it very much!


  11. A hungry poem. Your last stanza speaks volumes.


  12. earlybird says:

    Yum! I agree! I really like ‘willpower escapes’ – ie just when you thought you had it under control. Good.

    There’s (at least) one disadvantage about living in France: you can’t get clotted cream. (aggghhh!)


    • Becca Givens says:

      “willpower escapes” … right out the window!! 🙂 …

      ahhh, clotted cream – I don’t have to have it … in fact, I don’t get it often here in Texas … but it is a pleasure when it is available.
