Remember my article about my nearby favorite Italian bakery? A couple of months ago, if my memory serves me right, I found out that the bakeshop was shut down by the Department of Sanitation due to violations. It has not re-opened since, but today, I found out that the owners finally decided to close the bakeshop for good. The owners have come to know me on a personal level because I became a loyal customer. It’s sad to hear about their decision.
Now, while Thanksgiving is drawing near, I keep reminiscing the taste of their delicious pumpkin pie. I didn’t used to like pumpkin pie at all until I tried theirs, and since then, when the Holidays ushered in I would devour the pie whenever I bought one.
What is my logical next step? Find a replacement bakeshop! But NO, my inner self is telling me: I should learn and get myself into baking. This might just be the perfect time! Okay then, let me start buying my baking equipments. I hope this will not interfere with my effort to shed off some extra pounds.
