I am constantly in a food rut, I get so sick of figuring out what to eat. I wish I had a personal chef so bad! But, since I don’t, I end up eating out more than I probably should.One place I love to eat at but sometimes forget about is Village Baker. First off they have the best bread ever, it’s called Squaw Bread, If you haven’t tried it, you have to! They will make any of their sandwiches with your choice of bread, I always pick the squaw bread! it is sooo yummy!! I also end up buying a few loaves for home because it’s that good! The only problem with it is they cut their bread so thick! it’s like eating a whole loaf of bread with your sandwich! I guess it’s not the worst problem to have! lol
They also have a big selection of yummy looking treats, I try to not buy treats because I know I can make a pretty mean treat at home, and I really don’t NEED any more treats, but every once in a while you just have to splurge. So I was at lunch with a girlfriend of mine and we decided to split a dessert. I had my eye on a piece of black magic cake, which I usually am not really a fan of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting but I have had this before and it was to die for, but she wanted the white cake with Raspberry frosting. First off I don’t like to mix fruit with my desserts, I don’t know why, but fruit filled cakes, cobblers, fruity ice cream and things like that are just gross to me. So I wasn’t super excited about her choice but I thought, I don’t really need a treat so let’s get what she wants.
I took a bite fully expecting it to be my only bite and Holy crap, This innocent looking piece of cake, was probably the best thing I have eaten in a long time! I seriously was tempted to buy another piece on the spot and eat it too! I can’t believe how good it was, like people, I haven’t stopped thinking about it since! It has since made me wonder how many other yummy treats I have been missing out on because of my close minded no fruit in my dessert policy?? I mean on one hand it is probably a good thing because I don’t really need any more treats in my life, but It did make me think I need to expand my horizons a bit when it comes to my food choices, maybe I could get out of my food rut if I would try more new things!? Now if only I could fall in love with something that is actually good for me! 😛
