Sunday Morning Coffee Haiku

Haiku - Inspired by Blogger friend Zoebyrd at 

Oh coppertop pot
Brew your magic elixir
Fill my goblet now

The coffeepot belonged to my Mother-In-law; this was how coffee was made in the olden days.

Fill water to the top line of the coffeepot, (that will make 8 to 10 cups of coffee). Spoon in 8 to 10 tablespoons of coffee.  I filled it to the top line that is indicated on the basket, place the basket onto the stem which is actually the percolator, cover the basket with the basket cover, called the coffee spreader, cover the coffee pot (my pot has a copper top) J

Place on stove bring heat to medium high to high and wait for water to boil, once the water boils the percolator starts to do its job – allow to percolate for 7 ½ minutes  -  take off heat and let it rest and settle for a minute.  
Pour in cup add sweetener of choice, and any dairy product – for me I like almond milk, or add nothing and enjoy it as it is made.

We all Crunch, even Teddy does too….

Favorite crunchy food to eat - I love crunchy food - if you want, you can also read about it here.

This is going to be a quick post... 

I heard somewhere that when we are stressed or anxious we tend to snack on crunchy snacks.

When we are sad or depressed we tend to snack on soft gooey snacks.

My little guy is neither anxious nor sad

See how sweet he is.....

Show him some these

He becomes so demanding he will stare you down

Give him one…all you here is CRUNCH, CRUNCH…so loud I think he enjoys to crunch too!
