Heaven with a hole in the middle


What’s better than a cinnamon crunch bagel from Panera Bread? That’s right, nothing. It’s a good thing we don’t actually have a Panera here in town because my family would never see me again. My children would be standing outside the door, all forlorn and Dickensian-looking, clutching scarves over their heads as the wind whipped mercilessly around them, chorusing, “Mother, won’t you please come home?” (complete with British accent). And I’d snap out of my smoked-turkey-sandwich-and-filled-coffee-cake haze long enough to tell them I loved them, but run along because mummy’s life is here now.
Hmmm…now that I think of it, the title of this entry is probably going to bring in some p0rn search traffic. So, hi there! And buzz off! I’m talking about baked goods, you perverts.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Oh god and I would be sitting next to you eating a Tucscan Chicken sandwich with soup in a BREAD BOWL. That is they only way all soup on the whole earth should come.

  2. Totally, Manda. I’m all about the bread bowl. Though I was a titch disappointed the other day when I went in and found out the Prima Chicken sandwich, which I loved, was only on the menu for the month of March. Oh, who am I kidding….a “titch”? I almost broke down crying right there in the restaurant! Now I’m having pesto withdrawals and I don’t know if they’ll ever have it on the menu again. Wah.

  3. Sometimes they will make the sandwich special for you, especially if you can call ahead and order. Can’t hurt to ask.
    mmm, bread bowl. One of my friends at work gave me a Panera gift card to thank me for giving her my old maternity clothes. I immediately ordered the broccoli cheddar soup for lunch.
