Well here we are again. Just the one week off, but a week of quite enough bacon baguettes thank you very much. Discipline is all very well when you’re at home but when you’re away, awake early, hungry and you know the village deli offers a fine bacon baguette with sauce WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO?
