Now that the glow of mature age studenting has all but faded, it really does not take very much for me to bail on attending class. I'm having flashbacks of 19 year old me, urging others to bail on Research Methods and Statistics in order to split a bowl of fries with me at Monash Uni Caulfield's one eatery. Times were tough. Pickings were slim.
So, when it came down to eating treats with friends vs Nutrition class (ironic, no?), well, you know me well enough to know the choices I made that day were inevitable, beyond my control.
The treat eatery of choice was Sugardough bakery, on Lygon Street. A place I have wondered about ever since I heard the name. Sugardough. Doesn't it evoke all kinds of wonderful? Fairy floss flavoured bread and the like? That's what I'm getting. Anyway!
I knew what I wanted before I even set my gaze upon the wide array. But I still had a good look at what was on offer. Basically, Sugardough is heaven. From sweets to savouries, donuts to pies, breakfasts and lunches. The pumpkin pie is vegan, and I also spotted some kind of pistachio iced cake, as well as some raspberry apple number (INVOLVING SILVER SPARKLES!) but I had my mind set on the Sunshine Muffin, a muffin that I had heard much of and longed for frequently. That and a soy chai latte meant I had absolutely no regrets about skipping school for snacking.
My chai was also a winner. Well spiced.
Sugardough also carry standard breads, baguettes and loaves that all look amazingly crusty and chewy.....aaaaannnd since I'm moving to Brunswick in, oh, exactly twenty days, I'll be able to let you know a whole lot more about those products in connection with my upper digestive tract real soon.
