I am very excited and surprised to report that I have completed one of my four simple goals. This weekend, I visited Amaranth Bakery and Cafe, one of the local bakeries I've been wanting to try. A friend of mine used to bake bread for their bakery, and I had heard lots of good things about Amaranth's atmosphere and food. Paul and I rode our bikes a quick five minutes there and picked out lunch (Paul) and dessert (me). I loved the decorations and design, loved the owner (who asked me if I was from Homeland Security), and loved the food and casual atmosphere. Amaranth exceeded my expectations, and I can't wait to go back. It doesn't hurt that it gives me a great excuse to ride my bike!
Do you have a favorite local bakery?
