Random Bread and Kaya Surprises

If all goes according to plan, I will be running 21 miles tomorrow.

And if you're anything like me, the first thing that comes to mind on the eve(s) of a (very) long run is....

This Nature's Own Whole Grain bread has a surprisingly good flavor and texture.  I don't know about you, but when it comes to the types of breads that come from most grocery stores, they leave much to be desired both in taste and texture.  This one wasn't too grainy and was soft. 

To be honest, I don't eat bread too often anymore, and I don't usually go for normal supermarket shelf ones.  However, for a bread of this genre, it's surprisingly good.

Speaking of surprises, "The Ukrainian" decided to celebrate our recent month-i-versary with this single rose that some lady was selling at a recent event we attended.  I always think those things are rip-offs, but admittedly, it was nice and such a plump flower!

Anyway... back to bread.  Recently, we had a can of this stuff, and any time this is smeared on my bread, I can't help but eat it all.  This is a can of coconut jam (kaya).  There are many manufacturers of this stuff, but Yeo's is the best.

I'd describe this stuff as smooth and sweet.  You should really hit up an Asian supermarket and seek this can.  It may not look like much, but the stuff inside will surprise you.

When I was little, I ate it on top of pillow (sort of like Hawaiian) bread.  Pure heaven.  Goes well with peanut butter.  These days, it tends to go more on sliced bread, but it's still soooooo good.

I will end this random entry with a recent surprise that was not as pleasant (that's an Endurance Bag).  And I only say this because I hate finding fur all over my stuff.
