…the Italian bakery on the way. Our new Brooklyn neighborhoodCarroll Gardensis known for its Italian-American food, and its peppered with old-school Italian restaurants, butchers, gelato shops and arguably the best pizza in New York City.
But we come for the mini muffins.
The boys always devour them in record time.
For adults, by the way, if youre feeling hedonistic, is peppery lard bread, packed with cubes of salami and cheese. Apparently, the bread comes from the Southern Italian baking tradition of using absolutely everything. If you were lucky enough to have pork with your meal, you would save the leftover fat and pork scraps, and mix them into your next bread dough, writes Serious Eats.
For our fall adventures, the boys have been wearing Old Navy basics, like cotton sweaters and puffer vests.
We even got skinny jeans for Anton. (!!!) Theyre cute, comfy and sturdy.
Then were ready to start the day! What are your morning rituals? Do you make a warm breakfast? Listen to NPR? Get up at the last possible second? I highly recommend adding lard bread to whatever youre currently doing:)
