We are ready to soak up the sun and drink our coffee on the porch,
without freezing our butts off.
May spring come quickly and speedily!
Drink Coffee be Happy!
Words, Coffee, Music, Dance, Laugh, Live
Each of the above has a special place in our lives and different tunes due to our emotions, feelings, environment. Each can play off of each other…enhancing, enriching and making that moment one to remember.
I have laughed over strong espresso with the ones I love.
I have cried over a plan cup of black coffee in the morning on my porch in the morning sun.
I have sang with my to go mug of coffee while dancing to music in the yard picking up leaves.
I have drug myself up the stairs to the kitchen just to get my lively hood from the coffee pot.
I have spoken sweet words of thanks to God over my Coffee as the steam hits my nose.
I clutch my cup with two hands, held it close to my chest and believed I might not stand without it.
I love life, I love laughter, and I love Coffee.
I drink way more than I should, and I do not regret it… 🙂

Molasses will bring a strong and wonderful flavour to your cup of coffee, along with a dash of good Caribbean rum.
Serve hot with whipped cream.
Heat coffee and molasses in a saucepan until molasses is dissolved. Put 1 tbs of rum in each mug, and pour coffee over. Top with whipped cream. Serves 6
You can really taste the rum in this one, great for a crowd. Simmering with spices for a few hours will build up the flavour of cinnamon and cloves.
Heat everything through over low heat and simmer for about 2 hours. Serves 8-10
My Absolute Favorite!
Now I know what your thinking… not all of these have Coffee in them but we have to be open to all drinks, or we wouldn’t be the adventurous people we are. 😀 We love putting a scoop of the Rum batter in our morning coffee. It is fantastic and delicious. It is a great treat on a cold winter morning, or after dinner for a dessert coffee…That reminds me… I think we still have some Batter in the freezer! Woo Hoo! Looks like my lunch coffee will have a little kick to it! 🙂
Happy Monday Everyone!
