Coffee

It is a good thing.

I'm sitting by the window in my hotel room, watching the world go by. It's a beautiful morning in lower Manhattan.

I could get used to this.

Your'e coffee is getting cold. Looks like a fine arabica having been pressed. The rest looks delicious too. As opposed to my thin gruel...

ENJOY!

No eggs. No bacon. No grits. And only a possibility of potatoes. And what's that green stuff? I'd drink the coffee and throw the rest out the window for the Manhattan wildlife. Then I'd take a short walk over to the Stage Door Deli and get some real food.

I had eggs and prosciutto ham and hollandaise sauce underneath the greens. I didn't think the greens were going to be a good combination with the eggs benedict, but it was delicious.

And I am saving room for lunch!

Yum. I prefere a fine, bittersweet chocolate, but hey, that's me.

Hope it is a good one.

spd,
I drooled on my keyboard after seeing that sandwich. For laughs and giggles I checked out the menu and the prices are decent. I am totally shocked.

It is a good thing.

No fork? Somebody musta went and diluted it with *milk* or somethin'...

I hope you enjoy your visit as I'm sure the food will be good.

Regarding food and coffee, my budding gourmet's palate of youth was assassinated by USN coffee and chow long ago. On the plus side, almost any coffee and most food now passes the taste buds without nary a whisper of protest. =8^}

Ummmmm -- what's a "taste bud"?

Posted by: BillT at March 21, 2009 02:26 PM

"Taste buds" were imaginary or fictional characters in Budweiser commercials of a few years back.

How long have you been out of the country, anyways?

Bill, speaking of fictional characters, you did know that John Kerry once ran for President and that he also served in Viet Nam?

Bwaaahahahahahahaha...

Aww come on Don.

This time? Since February 08. It's weird, but I've spent more time OCONUS *after* I retired than I did in the 37+ I was in uniform.

Heh. I may have heard about Kerry long before you guys -- I flew out of Sea Float a bunch of times, and the SEALs used to talk about a "dumbsh*t Lootenant" who almost got them killed by shooting up their ambush site instead of the VC they were ambushing.

...a "dumbsh*t Lootenant" ...
He didn't do poor old Uncle Ben much good either.

Course it is said that Uncle Ben had the last laugh, what with return fire via high velocity rice grains, which were said to have hit the north end of the south bound arse.

Ah, yaaaaaaaas -- the ol' "Hand Grenade In The Rice Cache" Trick.

As effective as using birdshot on the Blob...

I'll take the Kona coffee, thanks.

What're ya doin' in Noo Yawk? You should swing by "La Casa de Camo" (my rambling estate) on the way back through, if'n you drove there; we could have a "cuppa joe" or three. If you caught a flight, never mind...

Did someone say "Kona coffee"??


Right from the source, we get that. 'Tis good.

Indeed, someone did...and indeed, it is. Just had a cup of the 10% blend variety, which is better than "nuttin' honey"; I think I'll go have another...

I like my coffee the way I like my women -- strong, dark, and bitter...

In that case, you must love Michelle Obama...

Posted by: camojack at March 25, 2009 03:39 AM

Nah. I don't consider her particularly strong -- just highly opinionated, and loud about it.

I like my coffee *quiet*...
