Welcome to The EX Café Sat 03.04.2017
Good morning! Happy Saturday and welcome to the weekend!
Who's ready for coffee?
And I can smell that morning coffee from here. Must be a special brew. Nice one, Barista!
Holy moly indeed!! I was just reading posts over at the daily pledge, Spring into March 2017 with a Daily Commitment! , and I caught yours from yesterday re: Alexander Bell... "just look what he started"... good one, Pati!
Here you go, Pati... I have you all set to go to the sundeck and read blogs and watch the sun rise.
susan_m, you know my heart. Fresh from the oven, that smells like a slice of sunrise on a plate.
Thanks. I'm gonna find JustSharon (Hi, Sharon!) and grab that corner table on the sundeck with the great view.
Is that Garg-Oil To Spread On Your Pastry?
Good morning Susan!
Somebody needs to wake up the natives....I'll donate this ancient gong to bring em in through the doors...
I was reading some of our old cafe conversations and when I saw that you recently started drinking coffee black because you simply "had" to have your coffee,,,I thought of this pin for you.....
So here you are......
Pops, you had me at good morning.
Pops, I really do love my coffee. How could I not? And, if I were to be perfectly honest:
Since I have had enough coffee to do the personing thing, I rustled up a cowboy breakfast for you to go with your coffee:
OMG that breakfast looks so inviting....that is so country.... I miss Kentucky most when I see food pics like that....the best eating of my life was during the five years that I lived in Kentucky....geeze louise, those freshly picked green beans mixed with garlic, potatoes and bacon...."Shut the Door" I've went straight to heaven, and I ain't coming back....
The fun was something to remmember too.....
Gotta love country folk living....
Pops, you're talking to a southern girl... we call that cooking good enough to make you talk back to your momma.
I visited my wife's family in Kentucky after we got marred (sp?) and stayed with her grandmother. She made fried chicken and at least 10 other dishes for breakfast every morning, then, she would serve what was left throughout the day and add something else to it.
Exactly! Her kin must be related to my kin.
Good morning Susan and POPS. I'm up very early and am so ready for that cup of coffee., or I should say a vanilla latté would taste great. How are the two of you this morning, sounds cheerful around here.
Good morning to yo too Patti!!
Good morning, JustSharon! Here's a special cup for you and a big Saturday morning hug to go with it!
Any good blogs out there we might have missed?
What's up JustSharon!? The weekend is here, but the weather is just not cooperating, so I'm guessing today has a bunch of domestics to be performed by days end....I have all day to do it, so I'm not going to get in too big of a rush to go back and fight with those "califorinia king linens" ugh....;-( I wish their was a potion that I could drink that turn me from a ninja barista to a ninja housekeeper for a day....
So whenever I need inspirational ideas, I always go to my "Minion Mentor of Life," and here are a few of his takes on this whole misconception of housework, and it got me to thinking??????
Or leave it to a hoarder to make you feel good about yourself....
Perfectly fantastic. I used to love to do housework and then on a daily basis, but as I've gotten older, I'm not to quick to jump in. Our daughter (32) moved back home a year ago and now it just seems like everyone is under foot. So now I'v delegated the work out to Jake and Shannon while I'm yet recuperating and besides, my knees don't work. I've got lots of excuses. I just drink my coffee and dole out the orders, ha ha
I like the way you think!!!
I thought I'd swing by the ex cafe to see who's hanging out this morning and to wish each of you here a stressfree, hasslefree, smokefree day, I'm on my final coffee of the day but I might pop back in later on for a green tea and a cinnamon roll......
Sounds great, Marilyn!! Wishing you a blessed smoke free day as well.
Good Morning All. Already had coffee.
I can't decide between croissants, a glazed buttermilk donut, blueberry waffles or a braunsweiger sandwich. :-)
It says 43 and dense fog but I was just outside and took this picture. Does it look foggy to you?
Good Lord, Dale...is this a new kind of diet?
It's icky because of that braunsweiger stuff. Just saying.
That braunsweiger is disgusting but the coffee and toast are a perfect start to my day, thanks, Susan. I am going to work in a DIFFERENT cafe, one where I take the orders, ring people up, and wipe down the tables. Hope it's a busy day.
Go have a great day at the real cafe, Ellen!
You, Dear Dale, are getting braunsweiger because NO ONE has ever asked for it before:
Beautiful photo Dale and not the least bit foggy !!!
Good morning, Susan. I would love a cup of black coffee and some whole grain toast, no butter. I have to work today to I need to keep things light.
Good morning, Ellen!
Here's a few loaves of bread and a small pan of rolls I'd thought I'd bring to the ex cafe to share with you.
Gosh that looks good!
Hee, hee, hee, thanks susan_m , I love the big tongue on the computer screen.
Yeah, sadly, your picture isn't a lick 'n taste any more than it's a scratch 'n sniff.
Dry toast? Really, Ellen??!! Blech!!!!!
How about some French toast with chocolate peanut butter and banana stuffing? If I'm gonna dream, I'm gonna' dream BIG!!!
GM, everybody. I'll share!!!
I would love a latte to go with this....and make it a BIG one. This is gonna' take a lot of liquid to get down!
I LIKE dry toast in the morning. If it's good bread, it tastes really good. If I ate that, I would either fall asleep or have to run to the bathroom every five minutes.
I couldn't eat that, either, elvan, but if I'm gonna' dream, I'm gonna' dream indulgently!!!
(btw - I'm not seeing any protein for you to run on in that breakfast ---- may I suggest you add a scrambled egg to it?)
We've been working on our latte art.... Isn't this pretty?
Ok - in real life, it would be very cool to be able to do this, wouldn't it??
I met some people at 9 AM at a diner but had 2 cups of coffee at home. It's great not running out for a smoke after eating in a restaurant... It's almost 2 PM and I'm still drinking coffee
