I haven't been outside, visiting, touring and fulfilling my zesty duties for a really long time, spending most of my precious hours finishing and polishing off my dissertation. So bear with me for a moment. But I've finished it, I really have! Woop woop hooray hooray! I am officially no longer a student and while it hasn't quite sunk in yet, I believe I've been hit with occasional waves of freaking out...or how do you say, unemployment anxiety?
Well, I guess I've also been suffering from a mental breakdown these past couple days, what with all the cabin fever and the staring at a computer screen like a lobotomized monkey all day long, for weeks and weeks at a time.
So I thought I'd let a bit loose and just tell you about this one teeny tiny zesty gem that I've been hiding from you ever since I discovered it. You see, I have a weakness for cinnamon. You name it, cinnamon toast crunch cereal, cinnamon buns form cinnabun (yeah so? I just said weakness...this is me confessing, ok?), cinnamon butter, cinnamon alone, cinnamon apples, Big Red cinnamon chewing gum. I could go on. But I won't. And for anyone else who has a weakness for cinnamon, you will understand why I have kept this secret from you, when you bite into this magical cinnamon sensation from Gail's Bakery on Portobello Road. I swear to you, this is the best cinnamon roll I've ever bit into. It has crunch, it has moist (gross, hate that word), it has spice, it has sweeetness and it has everything of the magic a cinnamon roll: it has about a gizzillion calories. Well, this isn't Starbucks, so no need to spoil your coffee/sweet break with a calorie count. So head over there on your next Portobello trip and enjoy a bunch more delicious treats at Gail's and grab a cappucino with it so you can dunk it in French-style. Ohlala!Gail's Bakery, Portobello Road
