BREAKFAST NO MORE - Alas, one of our favorite weekend breakfasts is going away. Breakfast Sandwiches from Starbucks. The new CEO has decided that the smell of cooking breakfast sandwiches interferes with the trademark Starbucks coffee smell and they will no longer serve them. Actually I think he said something about it interfering with the "romance" of the Starbucks smell. Sigh. I really liked their turkey bacon sandwiches. Starbucks is also closing 100 stores in an effort to streamline their business. Wow, you mean having a Starbucks on every corner of a four way stop is overkill? Who knew? For more info go here.
SPEAKING OF COFFEE - Just as you can pair a good wine with food, you can pair Starbucks coffee with food. Back in the fall of 2007, Starbucks sold a book at their stores called "Discovery of a Continent". Their accompanying website has some recipes you can cook here and talks about pairing coffee with food here.
JAVA JUNKIE - Think you might be a little too involved with your daily cup of coffee? Go here to take a test and see if you qualify to be a Java Junkie. No fair using the hints to get the answers. I knew 8 out of 10. Completely missed the question on just how much caffeine is in decaf coffee!
