Bliss by Mail
Sometimes you fall in love with something that isn't available in your city. This happens to us on vacation quite a bit and when we try to replicate it at home it just doesn't cut it. So you have to go to the source. Soup is something I have pretty much cut out because the sodium is ridiculous. I just can't afford thousands of milligrams of sodium. But there is once or twice a year I make an exception. I got us a surprise when I saw a favorite bakery had a sale going on and it arrived last week. It's my bliss in a box...
I'm not a bread bowl kind of gal but I must say when it's from Boudin Bakery in San Francisco, I am all over that shizz. If I lived in the city by the bay, I would gain those 200 pounds back pounding down Kara's fleur de sel cupcakes, Paxti's Deep Dish Pizza (which puts every Chicago pizza to shame) and clam chowder mustaches after devouring this deliciousness.
Sodium gets thrown out the door when you have something this heavenly in your midst.
I was able to enjoy it last Sunday before my sense of smell took leave. Sometimes you just have to go for it and enjoy those little treats that you can't get anywhere else except when the FedEx guy begrudgingly hands over what he knows is something good. Wanna bite?
The Mr is enjoying some homemade sourdough croutons I made from the innards and I only ate half of my top. I had a picture of them but totally deleted them by mistake. Idiota. I tore them into big pieces, sprayed them with olive oil and sprinkled them with garlic powder and italian seasoning. The gift that keeps on giving.
What's your favorite food/treat that you splurge to order by mail? If you don't, what food would you order if money were no object?
