30 DAYS OF CREATIVITY … DAY 24: THE WAKEUP COFFEE
Sunday morning is the only day of the week when I actually start my day with a cup of coffee. The rest of the week I start my day with a bowl of cold cereal with 2% milk. And the cold cereal will be either corn flakes, Rice Krispies, Grape-Nuts, Kix, Cheerios, non-denomination Puffed Rice or Shredded Wheat. But on Sunday, because I’ll be reading the Sunday Post, I just have coffee and perhaps a cookie to keep me going until I decide what to fix for Brunch. This morning I had a Gouda’s Gilde ORIGINELE STROOPWAFELS that have been made in Amsterdam since 1864. My niece picked them up for me at the Airport Schiphol where she was making a connection on a class trip from Switzerland back to the school in Lagos, Nigeria. The Stroopwafels is about a 1/4″ thick waffle filed with caramel. You let it set on top of your cup of hot coffee to melt the inner caramel. It’s like a waffle with the syrup built into it.
My coffee mug is my old standby Sherlock Holmes mug. It is filled with a Kona Blend Coffee in my Keurig Coffee maker.
I don’t know why I read the Sunday Post-Dispatch? As you can see, there’s not any news on the front page of the paper. It was once a great daily newspaper … actually the first newspaper founded by legendary publisher Joseph Pulitzer. Today, it’s about a step down from the level of a local weekly advertiser. This is what’s left of the newspaper that scooped the world with the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.
Also this week I had a dish of ripe Bing cherries with my coffee and cookie.
And in case you’re wondering, the all-star city to our west is Kansas City, MO.
