Unre-“lent”-ing month of giving up

Re-“lent”-less Pressure

You do remember the season of Lent don’t you? It started a few weeks ago! Ash Wednesday, remember?

You have probably forgotten all about it now. It’s probably gone the way of your New Year’s Resolutions.

If you look at our café display in the morning it is loaded with scones and pies and chocolate treats and homemade brown bread.

By the afternoon our customers have stripped it bare. Either by sitting down in the café with a coffee and a plate of goodies or filling red takeaway bags.

Temptation

We would like to apologise for putting temptation in front of you on a daily basis . . . But it’s our job!

So, if you are still staying off stuff for Lent, congratulations, well done, good job. Keep at it.

We won’t increase the pressure by posting pictures of warm apple and rhubarb pies gently steaming with a side of freshly whipped cream.

We will just write a few more sentences detailing the sinful delicacies available in Halo Café. Like the ROCKY ROADS, RICE KRISPIE MARS SQUARES AND CARAMEL SQUARES. Sorry for shouting and all . . .

I should also mention that we have now added pancakes to our menu. They are available with maple syrup. With crispy smokey bacon. With fruit compote and for the child in all of us . . . Nutella!

Pancakes were such a hit on Pancake Tuesday is seems a shame to keep them for just one day of the year.

You have been telling us for the last seven years to get them on the menu and we have now made space to accommodate your desires.

Delighted that you have managed to read our monthly post and hope that your giving up for Lent is holding firm.

Mind you! Paddy’s Day is on the way which means that most of you who have laid off the booze will be taking a one day break from your giving up!
