    Indeed...it was very purpley. I saw it sitting way in the back...and requested it instead of the orangey one. It was soooo good...a few of the other less sparkly sprinkles attached themselves along for the free ride.

        I miss Drake's pies. I hope they return one of these days for a quick fix...

          I know the ingredients in these pies are very bad, but damn--they're like a cross between pies and donuts, and that's hard to hate...

              Now it's Entenmann's as my "bad influence" and Drake's were so much better at being... BAD! BAD! BAD!

              Shoulda had a waffle or somethin'...

                  Fingers crossed they both come back soon. The Drake's coffee cakes too. I really miss them. They are not as "bad" as the pies but very good...

                    My dad used to love all those chocolate snack cakes.  I never was a fan of them, especially the chocolate-paraffin coating.   However, I've had lots of those pies and the snack cakes that had frosting on them--I could eat anything back in those days and never gain an ounce...

                        C'mon Breakfast...

                        Breakfast today started in Phoenix Arizona.

                        CC sees See's...



                        Si Si!



                        El Bravo is a popular Mexican restaurant in Phoenix. El Bravo has a kiosk at Sky Harbor airport....America's friendliest airport.



                        The flagship location supplies this location with Mexican treats...daily.

                        It was early (Breakfast) so there was a limited choice as far as menu items. I went with a carne asada burrito and it was delicious. I also went with it to the plane...and enjoyed Breakfast over the Grand Canyon...



                        The hot sauce was not hot and heavy on the Mexican oregano & black pepper...



                        It was an excellent Breakfast. The tortilla was as large as a queen-sized comforter...so no lunch today.

                          With Phoenix at like 119, See's must be serving hot chocolate!
                           
                          The burrito sounded good, and I bet your neighbors on the plane smelling it on the plane were wanting it!  But yeah--that tortilla looks way wrong for the amount of filling.

                            It was a small plane....



                            I was in-charge of the emergency exit door. So I snacked on the filling and reserved the tortilla in the event a parachute might be needed.

                                Hahaha!  So that's why they didn't make you walk the plank for bringing that on board.

                                    Sunday means donuts!



                                    A maple-glazed cinnamon bun almost as big as the cake box...



                                    Cinnamon crunch donut...



                                    Glazed Old-fashioned (west coast version) I'd be in big trouble if these were found in NJ or NYC...


                                    Plain but nothing plain about it...



                                    Vanilla with sprinkles...



                                    Chocolate with sprinkles...



                                    A good day of donuts!

                                      That maple glazed item is a thing of beauty--me want.  Was it as good as it looks??
                                       
                                      They don't have "old fashioneds" back east, and if not, I wonder why?

                                        Here it is basking in the sun...



                                        Oh yes...every bit as good. You want...you get. It opens at 5am and if it survived a long hot run through the desert...it will be perfect on a train with ac!

                                        We see donuts called Old Fashioneds but most of the time it's a general term used for a cake donut...buttermilk or sour cream donut without the very distinctive features as the west coast version.

                                        The closest donut variety with similar features might be a plain or jelly (cruller) stick. Why? You are much better at figuring these things out...for sure. I'll wait for your answer!

                                          Yes--there's some kind of reaction that's making those split like that, and I do wonder if it's buttermilk/sour cream, and probably the leavening is a different ratio, too.  Think about the difference between a layer cake and a quick bread:  the tops on quick breads often split, but layer cakes don't.  I'll poke around and see what I can learn.  In the meantime, I hear those maple things calling my name...

                                            If you ask me...it's just big time donut MAGIC!

                                            As superb as the cinnamon things were fresh...they do take on a new sinful dimension chilled...the next day.

                                            I'm gonna load up the box. I'll listen to them during the entire ride!

                                                  That donut knows what we did last summer!

                                                  I love west coast donuts! I believe!

                                                  What's Big Train coffee powder?

                                                  It sounds powerful!

                                                      BEAUTIFUL!


                                                      If memory serves you posted a bacon waffle a few months ago. Was this the same place?

                                                        Good memory!!  Yes, it's the same place.  However, there's another place I like for bacon waffles, and that's Stacks.  I order them extra crispy.

                                                          Another BEAUTIFUL waffle!

                                                          I was raised with the Eggo!

                                                            I had a cup of coffee with vanilla, no sugar added Big Train Blended Coffee powder.  My breakfast of choice.

                                                            I need another.

                                                            Stan's!!!  That's another place on my list.
                                                             
                                                            I looked up the Big Train coffee powder.  Looks like there are some tasty blends.
