mmm-yoso!!!, the food blog you have in front of you, has writings of a rotation of subjects which ultimately center on some sort of delicacy or general appetite satisfaction. Today, while Kirk and Ed(from Yuma) sit back and contemplate their latest form of nourishment, Cathy will write.
Hello again. Ever since the Paris Baguette franchise showed up in San Diego, I've been fascinated at the variety of baked goods offered in the small venue whenever The Mister and I stop in the local HMart.
Well, you know I had to...but of course, I wanted to appear in control of my purchase, so picked up a tray and paper liner and set out to buy a few items from this in store bakery...
There IT was- the LAST Kronut on the tray. Nobody was around, there was no fighting for it: it was MINE!!!
My total purchase: Sausage bread ($1.80), Blackout bread($1.80), Ham and cheese croissant ($2.20) and Kronut ($3)...see? Three items with a protein and only one sweet...I appear to be disciplined in my bakery habits...
The Mister and I drove across the street, to the Starbucks. I waited in line for a coffee (brewed, bold, tall: discipline) while The Mister lined up the purchase so I could take a photo.
The ham and cheese croissant is a regular purchase of mine, everywhere. I may do an entire post of ham and cheese croissants one day. The crust here is sweet glazed, the crust/bread is wonderful: crispy and flaky, the ham is flavorful but sparse, as is the cheese.
I like the sausage bread here, because the sausage itself has good flavor, it's topped with quite a bit of cheese and the red and green pepper rings add that touch of flavor (and fiber )that rounds it all out...the bread is good too.
If you haven't figured it out, the "Black Out Bread" is colored with squid ink . The sausage/hot dog is split and the center filled with mustard. The ends sticking out of the bread are split again, so they curl when it bakes and looks kind of like a squid.
I can count the number of times I've paid $3 for a donut on one hand. I have a post coming up about those other goodies; bakeries are a current obsession. This Kronut is worth it....so very worth it.
