My husband says I have corrupted him. He is a former tea drinker who still enjoys a cup of Earl Grey, but first thing in the morning these days, thanks to my influence, only a good cup of coffee will do. Recently we discovered Starbuck’s Blond, the Veranda blend, which is a milder roast and not as acidic as their regular roast. We are early risers, ( 5 am). We enjoy breakfast, that nice cup of Veranda and the morning papers before he hurries off to his office six miles from home and I head upstairs to mine–15 steps from the kitchen.Usually, a second cup of coffee, laced with milk and a tiny drop of half and half, comes with me and Jake, our five year old golden retriever.
Because I appreciate a good cup of coffee, and hope you will too, today’s prize in my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway is a gift card from Starbuck’s. If you aren’t a coffee drinker, enter anyway. Starbuck’s serves teas (my favorite in the summer is their shaken iced tea lemonade with lots of ice),they have pastries, and waters, and juice, and CD’s. Lots of ways to spend your gift card. Or, you can pass it along to someone at Christmas this year. Enter here: www.facebook.com/dorothylovebooks Good luck!
