A quick but timely post specially for us east-enders: Celena’s Bakery has opened on Danforth near Woodbine. I can write about this in a garden blog with good conscience for two reasons:
One: See what’s on top? Rosemary! A fresh sprig tops Celena’s surprising and delicious Rosemary Raisin Bread. We have been back for seconds. The Roasted Garlic Sourdough (See? Garlic!) was also a hit at our table.
Two: Did you know that weeding alone burns 6 calories per minute? That might not sound like much, but you haven’t seen my weeds. (Ha ha!) Now think: digging, weight-lifting buckets of mulch and bags of manure, hauling all those plants home from the nursery. You’ll need a lot of energy to do good things in the garden.
Celena and Richard Cambridge launched their business a month ago, and celebrate the bakery’s Grand Opening this weekend, March 13 & 14, 2010. Buy a coffee or hot chocolate on Saturday and Sunday, and get a free cookie. Take it from me, Celena’s cookies are a delicious way to fuel up for three hours of weeding (your mileage may vary).
And this is a completely unsolicited endorsement.
