Manna from Starbucks

October 26th, 2009

I confess to being a bit of a Starbucks junkie. I don’t drink coffee, but their chai lattes are pretty irresistible and their baked goods are tasty.

Well, ordinarily, the little carb and sugar bombs are “tasty.” On a morning when I was forced to skip breakfast in order to do a fasting cholesterol screen and the earliest appointment time was a solid four hours after I woke up…

…the petite* vanilla bean scones were like manna from heaven.

I ate three of them. And a blueberry muffin.

*They’re tiny. I swear. Like, two bites. Maybe three if you’re feeling delicate and refined. Which I wasn’t.
