Ah, C. An open circle. A hug in the making. Representing so many influences in my life. Should I talk about my CAT, trying to trip me if I take too long a step? Or maybe CHOCOLATE, that nirvana of food (I do have a great low carb Chicken Mole) Nah, KITT CRESCENDO handled chocolate masterfully. I would discuss cancer but I can not do so and pretend to be polite. Too many friends, too many losses.
Which leaves…coffee. MMMMM, COFFEE. As I explained when I visited ALLY SHIELDS earlier in the year “Ah coffee, the nectar of life. I drink it hot. I drink it cold. In an emergency I would not be surprised if I drank from a pot three days old. I draw the line at old enough to have floating organisms and I just can’t agree with certain brands being the best part of waking up, or good to the last drop. I have a Keurig, a French press, and a drip coffee maker. Oh, and several cones with filters. Just in case I’m isolated by a flood or blizzard.”
I generally wake up in the dark and stagger to the kitchen to let the first group of Salukis out. On the way, I click on my
Keurig. The first cup is hot water. The second cup is water with apple cider vinegar (insert face mashed together while I shudder a bit) or sometimes lemon juice.
Then I drop my first pod into the one cup coffee miracle. I use this ORGANIC coffee in biodegradable pods. So I don’t worry so much about all that plastic stuff (I could use c**p here, in keeping with the letter of the day!) ending up in land fills. All mine end up in eventual garden plots along with the rest of my kitchen detritus. Amazon delivers eighty pods monthly. It’s almost enough. Hmm now I see I can get 120 pods delivered, for less than $2.00 additional. Interesting, I’ll have to look at that later.
My first cup is black. Ahhh, bliss. Some of the brain cells start to fire in earnest. Eventually in between goofing with the ‘lukis and checking e-mail I move on to BPC…Bullet Proof Coffee, a low carb treat of coffee, quality butter, coconut cream. Yeah, high fat, but low carb and a great way to ease into the rest of the day.
In a pinch I’ll drink drive through coffee, or maybe hit Starbucks. Not for the blends, but for a cup of what’s on tap, then I add nutmeg or cinnamon and a touch of cream.
Yep, keeps me going.
What are your choices in favorite beverages of the day…starts with C or not?
