Originally before I had a blog site, I had thought that if I had a blog site I would use it only to chronicle eating my way through the dessert counter at Simply Biscotti on Preston St. in Ottawa. I thought it would be a cool project in this, my life beyond full-time, flat-out work and it would be completed within a relatively short time frame-say six months or so. I was wrong-headed about it all. Giving myself a deadline, even an artificial one, makes the whole thing into another job-I have had plenty of work that came with deadlines in my lifetime and why would you want to put a time limit on such an enjoyable experience.
Simply Biscotti is doing a great business by the looks of it. Rosa has added more seating by developing the second floor over her shop. Good thing too for there’s quite a bit of new development planned for Little Italy and that bodes well for Rosa and Simply Biscotti.
This past week my friend and I combined a brisk early morning walk with breakfast at Rosa’s. We each enjoyed a latte and a nicely spiced pumpkin muffin. The muffin would be good with cream cheese icing but that’s not really breakfast food, is it?
