My adult years have been characterized by a love of good food. Ok, yeah, it’s been a lifelong love affair. Me and good eats, we go way back.
Though I am as cheap as a summer day is long, there are some things that I choose not to scrimp on. Good coffee is one of them. And so is the cream that goes in.
I’d rather go without my morning cup of Joe than have it without the proper amounts of cream and sugar. 2 Tablespoons and 3 teaspoons, respectively.
Didn’t I already mention that I was a glutton?
Having a cup of coffee the way I like it, the French call it cafe creme, in my special Peets Coffee cup is just a fantastic way for me to start the day. Just a little, creamy, sweet pleasure first thing. And now that we’re in driving distance from Peets, well, I’m becoming a little more dependent on that particular brand as well.
No, it’s not a big deal. I’ll live without it. And I do on many mornings. But, it’s one of the finer things in life that I truly appreciate. A good cafe creme is evidence that God loves me.
