BREAKFAST AT HOME AND THE POD ALLIANCE

DAY 47, 48, 49,  JUNE 17, 18, 19,  2018

My husband, Jim and I like to go out for breakfast on Sundays.  This particular Sunday, being Father’s Day, could mean a very long wait.  We are not waiters.   At Jim’s suggestion, we stayed home and made pancakes.  I found fresh blueberries in the refrigerator and got to work making a batch from scratch.  I made the batter, Jim did the cooking.  On the side, leftover steak, sliced thin; fresh and oh so sweet watermelon; warmed, maple syrup; and voila’, breakfast at home.  Is your mouth watering yet?  It wasn’t long before I needed a nap from all the sugar.

I am one lucky gal to have a man who loves to cook for me.  I hear it all the time from friends who aren’t as pampered.  When Jim travels I either eat out with friends or stay at home with a bowl of popcorn.  True story.  Or, and I don’t mean to brag, well maybe a little, he prepares a few meals for me for the days he will be away.  I KNOW, RIGHT!

On Monday, we became Pod People – Keurig Coffee dispenser owners.  I fought it hard for many reasons; the cost of the pods seems unreasonable, the wastefulness of the pods, and the way I drink coffee – I like to add half a cup of coffee at a time and drink it burning hot.  I learned while staying at a friend’s home during a visit to Maine, that I don’t have to use the pods, I can use my own coffee (comes with a filter for that) and I can brew as little as half a cup at a time.  Being the decisive person that I am, here we are, three years later with a Keurig.  I LOVE IT!

The days still come with work and responsibilities but I am up early to water my plants and tend my vegetable garden.  I go to bed early to read for an hour or two before falling asleep.  I just finished When Breath Becomes Air about the writer, Paul Kalanithi, a neurosurgeon and his battle with cancer.  I found it an interesting perspective on critical illness.
