When I was pregnant with my first child coffee became one of those things on my list of “do not….”. I didn’t know I was pregnant at the time, but Thanksgiving morning of 2003 the smell of coffee caused an unpleasant “irk” in me – “How strange!” I thought. After having Sammy I tried to pick up the habit, but since I was nursing and he was my first, I tried to limit my consumption of caffeine (and at the time thought decaf wasn’t very good…).
Just recently I passed on my 13 year old coffee maker to my mom since hers was on the fritz. (Little does she know she’s getting a new one for Christmas!) Now I’m not a big spender on coffee makers. It doesn’t have to look fancy. However, I do like a timer and automatic shut-off.
To continue this post, this morning I find myself, well, actually, my children up much earlier than I anticipated considering they went to bed later. So I’m taking some time to chill alone with a cup of my semi-favorite coffee and working on my blogs. The reason is my semi-favorite is because I’ve combined my favorite, Bakers Treats by First Colony, Cinnamon Roll coffee, with Folger’s Breakfast Blend. I’ve done this in order to conserve my CR coffee until I can make it back to Albertson’s for a one item purchase. I hope I can find that silly card all the grocery stores like you to have, except of course, Walmart and Super 1.
This coffee is a delightful treat and I usually have it in my favorite Snowman coffee cup. I recently cleaned out my coffee mugs and have no idea what I will put it in once the holidays and flakey winter season in East Texas is gone. Try it! You might like it!
