CUP O JOE - Do we really need a Drink Coffee Day? I mean, isn't that something that a lot of us drink (multiples) of on a regular basis anyway? I should think that National Coffee Day should be all about cooking or baking with coffee or at least eating something coffee flavored. To bad there wasn't coffee flavored bacon.
BUT THEN AGAIN Maybe it's not coffee flavored bacon, but how about bacon flavored coffee? Go here for more information.
SERVE US UP SOME Hockey....many years ago, when the Sharks were playing a team that had the players Paul Coffey and Pat Falloon, I put up a sign that was something like "Now serving, Chicken Patty with Red Eye Gravy"....and no one got the Red Eye gravy part. Red Eye is slang for coffee in this concoction. Never had Red Eye Gravy myself (I think it's mostly a southern thing) but one of these days I hope to try some. But every time I run across a recipe or reference for Red Eye Gravy I always remember the sign that no one understood...where were all my foodies back then!??
