Rick and I had a lovers’ spat, so I stopped making brekkie for him! That’s why no breakfast posts these 2 weeks.
Nah, just kidding, heh! Like a dutiful wife, I still make/buy brekkie daily. Just that some days, breakfast was boring stuff like plain bread + jam. So I’ll just round up some of the more memorable ones.
Bought this D-Plus bun from the neighborhood “mama” shop. Apparently, it has a longer shelf life than other brands of factory-made buns. This one had about 3 weeks to go before its expiry date.
When I opened the package, there was a very strong, yeasty smell! But after I let it “air” for a while, it didn’t smell as much.
Surprisingly, it tastes pretty good! Moist and cottony, this could easily pass off as fresh bread. I’d give it a B+ (why they rate themselves D-Plus? Heh!).
At the shop, there were only about 5 flavors to choose from, but according to their website, there are at least 8. The chocolate one sounds good!
I’m posting this to remind myself NOT to buy donuts from this stall again! DC Donuts is located at the basement of Cathay Orchard Cineleisure. We bought these out of sheer convenience as we were there for dinner and movie.
At S$3.90 for 4 (buy 3 get 1 free), these donuts were a bargain, but they weren’t fresh, and were a poor imitation of JCo Donuts. You have been warned!
Another first, but will probably buy this again. BreadTalk likes word puns, like this Taro-cotta, which is nothing more than mashed taro in a bun. But it works because the taro is smooth and not too sweet, and the bread is soft and fluffy. So yammilicious! Think it costs around S$1.40.
This was today’s (Saturday) brunch. Rick often reminisces about his college days in Manchester where his dorm served a sumptuous English breakfast EVERYDAY.
Yeah, that’s such a so-not subtle hint! I told him, “You can dream on if you think I’m gonna get up at 6am everyday to make you English breakfast!”
Actually, it’s not hard to prepare, but too much of a hassle on weekdays. Besides, it’s rather unhealthy to eat like this everyday, no?
