Mezze & Other Quality Eats - 10/9/2011
It had been far less than 12 hours since our Caseus feast, yet Andrew and I found ourselves at nearby Lulu's coffee shop for breakfast cappuccinos and baked goods. Since I am aspiring to consume as many muffins as my budget and waistline allow, I pounced on the opportunity to sample one from an unproven source. When the barista described the bran muffin as "moister than one would expect," I knew this would be my selection. Indeed, the dryness factor usually deters me from the bran variety, but this particular unit was dense and succulent, and most notably, not as sweet as my usual breakfast treats. Although lacking in rich distinct taste, the muffin's texture coupled with its subtle flavor enabled optimal coffee saturation.
