I walked into Jeffrey’s Grocery and was greeted by cookies.
But 8:30 a.m. was too early for cookies. And what Bennie and I really came for was the chocolate coffee cake—totally appropriate for breakfast.
Curses! They had no chocolate coffee cake.
We could have opted for a berry muffin, pockmarked as they were with beautiful, plump berries.
But we got the carrot muffin instead.
And we were rewarded for it.
Deep in the heart of the carrot muffin, it was still warm from the oven.
And sugary sweet delicious.
