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 is too fleeting!

Ahhh … yum …

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

    Oh, YES,YES,YES–to all of the above baked wonders and talk of hot beverages! Remember that Pillsbury ad? “There’s nothin’ that says lovin’ like somethin’ from the oven!” You got it, girl!
