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! ______________________________________________

    Mouthwatering – I can smell the bakery! Pity I am wheat intolerant – although I sometimes weigh up the risk and give in to temptation now and then. 😉
