At this time I’m visiting my friend Erin and her family in Seattle. Still being on east coast time I went out for an early morning walk. Last night Erin told me that if I woke up early and went for a walk, and if I then happen to pass Macrina bakery (6 blocks from her house) then maybe I could pick up something for our breakfast.

So this morning I gave up trying to sleep at 5.30am west coast time and put on my sneakers and went out for a morning walk. I started with a visit to Starbucks (yes I’m in Seattle) and there I took an oatmeal. I also picked up a cup of tea to sip on for the rest of my walk as the Macrina Bakery didn’t open until 7am.

At 7am I stood outside their door and the girl made a joke about that usually they don’t have people hanging on their door at 7am on Sundays. But here I was! And didn’t they have all kind of goodies and all smelled so nice. I usually don’t have a sweet tooth but today I went all crazy in this lovely bakery. And I must say that even the box looked great!

I picked up 6 different goodies:
Roly Poly – their variant of cinnamon bun
Morning rolls – their variant of a swirl of croissant with vanilla sugar
Brioche with Nutella
Swirl with orange and hazelnut icing
Whole grain muffin with raspberries
Muffin with blueberries and strawberries

We split them into pieces so we all could enjoy a nibble of the goodness.

Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well!
Enjoy!
