  1. Too early on a Saturday morning to look at food for me. I’m still choking down my first cup of coffee and trying to decide if I should throw on clothes and go grocery shopping now or in 2-3 hrs.

    Speaking of coffee … I indulged in a Cafe Bombon this week, 2 oz of espresso layered over 2 oz sweetened condensed milk, stirred before drinking. I thought my head was going to blow off between the caffein and sugar rush.
