Cinnamon love

One of my favourite things in life is cinnamon. I love it on anything. The more cinnamon, the better.

When we travel, we always go try out any cinnamon buns at new places. Of course, this is largely due to me. My dear husband doesn’t have as much of a sweet tooth as I seem to have.

We were in Malaysia when we saw first saw Cinnabon – absolutely delicious – and my heart almost stopped beating just from the delicious smells.

So when I heard that Cinnabon opened in Sandton, I immediately asked Dion to get me a bun. The first time he went he got lost there so brought me a cinnamon croissant as a consolation prize. Which did not console me!

Anyway, a week or two later, he came home with this…

Eat your heart out! It is every bit as good as it looks - cinnful!

They are R15 each! More than double what we should pay. But I said to him, “let’s pretend we’re overseas and paying in US$. Then the R15 suddenly looked cheap ;)

P.S. This was before I joined the May Day Weight Loss Challenge!
