I think for lots of us...the memory of coffee is "strong" -- pun intended! LOL! My Dad is a 2-3 pot a day-er...and the coffee is almost ALWAYS on at "home" no matter the time of day. This may be weird...but when we were kids, we just loved dipping buttered toast in Dad's creamed coffee-- soggy, crunch...mmmm! I don't do that anymore, but sure did love it back then.
I love to get up with Scott (not that I always do especially this summer) and we have quiet time over a fresh perked pot of coffee. (We love our Farberware Percolator...reminds me of cooking coffee on an open fire --camping :) Or if I miss the early session with Scott, the coffees still hot (and a little stronger the way I like it) and I still get up before the kids are up and percolate over my to do list, check email and just soak up the silence. Good stuff.
I see a coffee themed scrapbook page coming tomorrow...
And now coffee is a big business isn't it?!? Its not just Folgers and Maxwell House anymore. LOL! Loved those old Maxwell House commercials, I think --when someone came home on Christmas morning (from college), was getting engaged, etc... Don't I wish I had some stock in Starbucks!?!? $4 bucks for a cup of brew...wow!
Thanks to friend Linda, I've found a new LOVE...this Starbucks VIA® Iced Coffee! (oh no!) I'm thinking this will be a lifesaver and easy to tote on the go this fall. And it is YUMMY! No creamer required...and I love me some french vanilla creamer! I see its cheaper here on Amazon ($4.95 per box) than in the stores so if you have Amazon Prime of course you get free shipping! Deal!!! Can you tell I'm loving Amazon lately. It's just way too easy!
Or I found a coupon here on the Starbucks site if you wanna pick up a box at your local Starbucks store.
Now I think I'm going to steal back this AWESOME cup I gave my Mama for her birthday since she prefers Sonic styrofoam! LOL! And I'll be all set up for portable iced coffee consumption!
