One of Ben’s first phrases was “Mommy’s coffee,” said with clarity and a hint of reverence. Ben has yogurt or waffles, Far has oatmeal and juice, and Mommy has, well, coffee.
Recently, a wise woman from the blogosphere mentioned an Italian drink that combined coffee and bubbles, with not a small amount of burnt sugar, called Bibicaffe. I couldn’t resist trying it. The smell is heavenly – caramel and espresso. The taste doesn’t quite meet the smell, but holy cow! Candy for breakfast! I may need to keep a stash on hand for those special Erasmus B. Draggin mornings.
