One – Two – Three – Coffee!
One – two – three. That's how my kids remember how to make me a cup of coffee.
One teaspoon of instant coffee.
Two teaspoons of sugar. Real sugar!
Three heaping teaspoons of coffee creamer.
Every once in a while throw in a dash of cinnamon .
Ever watch the movie “Giant” (1956) starring Rock Hudson ( Jordan 'Bick' Benedict Jr. ), Elizabeth Taylor ( Leslie Benedict , Jordan's young bride from the East – the “country” on the other side of the United States miles away from Texas, which is its own “country” :) ), and James Dean ( Jett Rink )? True timeless classic. Somebody is always asking questions about favorite movies and it's always a tough question for me to answer. But this is definitely one of them. One of the scenes any viewer must remember vividly is when Jett served Mrs. Leslie a cup of tea . She was ever so grateful to receive it because all the folks in Texas drink gallons and gallons of coffee . At the time I lived in South Florida and had never been to Texas. But now that I live in Texas, I can state unequivocally that wasn't just a line for the movie script! Texans love their coffee!!
So now for the big question of the day.
- Marshmallows or whip cream??
Which one do you like on your cup of hot chocolate?
You can't be in both camps. It is forbidden. You must choose!
Happy Thursday to the FOPP !!
