How To Eat a Boston Bun – in Exceptional Circumstances.
There is some back story here, and it goes like this. My sister V decided to go sugar free on the week days. This is good, this is great. Except if you have no real strategies in place… for when cravings and withdrawals hit. And for someone so organised, she missed that memo this week. Argh, I feel the pain. Anyway, this is a story about how to eat a Boston Bun (aka Sally Lun) in a the best and fastest way.
NOTE. This is a no judgement place. If you have never craved or needed food so badly that you will mainline a whole cake, well, I do feel sorry for you. You lucky hypothetical reader you.
So! Day 2.5 of the no sugar diet; minus good mood and plus headache and shakes, Sister V finds herself in the supermarket looking for coffee (I believe) and coming out with a whole Boston Bun which she proceeds to devour entire. As you do. Or maybe not you, but I certainly have. And this is where it gets awesome, because, here is a pic of how I normally (I mean, the once it has happened *cough*) would eat a whole bun.
Not particularly easy, and also very messy.
Now! Sister V’s genius!! YES! Step by step, in case anyone else ever has the need. This is a duty I feel I have, to share this with the … world? Anyway.
Step one: cut the top off the Boston Bun.
Step Two: butter the bottom half. Yes – it’s cut all raggedy. In a hurry, remember? 😀
Step Three: add jam. Optional, of course. Usually I just add butter- but anything goes. This IS a no judgement zone 😀
Step Four – and most important: put the top back on. UPSIDE DOWN.
Step Five: eat! Eat it like a sandwich. Just get right in there 😀 And now you do not have to fear the coconut and icing in the eyebrows! Dignity is kept! Er… ok, maybe not. But hey. Lack of food for Ron (Later Ron) does count for a fair amount some days 😀
Thank you, Sister V, for this story and the how-to. You absolutely made my day yesterday. Love you!! 😀
Have an awesome, clever, and food remnant free day
