Avenue Bread

I have a bad obsession with Avenue Bread here in Bellingham. It's bad because they have the most amazing baked goods, treats, sandwiches, bread, and coffee and they are just a few blocks down the street. Eating a copious amount of baked goods is never a good idea for the mid-section, but nearly irrisitable because they're so close.

You try resisting the urge of a good homemade cinnamon roll, or eggenue ( think egg mcmuffin on a homemade english muffin in plain, rosemary and eight grain with different options like the italian topped with ham, roasted red peppers, red onion, basil, and slathered in pesto) and a large cup of coffee or tea all on a Saturday morning when you wake up happy and hungry. All this less than 30 seconds away. You see? It's hard to resist.

Sunday afternoon we headed down and picked up some goodies and came home and nestled into our little nest, it was grey and pouring outside so sandwiches and baked goods with green tea and Amelie was the perfect way to widdle away a gloomy Sunday afternoon.

I know just what you mean. In fact, I'm eating a delicious sandwich on their fresh deli rye bread as I write this. So yummmmmmy!
