Memories. Since it is the weekend and time for languid, lazy breakfasts, I was remembering the cheese and coffee pairings I did awhile back.
And how the chevre and black coffee was a brilliant match. So I thought I would repost the reminder. Buy some chevre and make a really good cup of coffee (or hell, buy that too) then sit back and watch someone else slave over the waffles and bacon. And make sure they promise to do their own breakfast dishes.
And if you’ve promised someone breakfast in bed just add fresh fruit to the menu and you will be the best ever bed chum in as much time as it takes you to grind coffee beans and wash strawberries.
Have a good one!
PS–I just remembered this Ginger Melon salad (see bottom of post) that would step up the chevre/coffee thing and would totally earn you foot massage (at least in this house).

Sigh. So cozy.
Red Rocket on the Danforth is open. There is excitement about the foam on the lattes and the crema on the espresso.
Chairs were still being tucked under tables and the kitchen is not running yet but it was a warm welcome–on both ends.
And if you love coffee you must read Chris Nuttall-Smith’s “How to Make the Best Coffee of Your Life” piece from yesterday’s Globe. Even if you dislike coffee, it’s a great read and offers much fodder for scowling and taunting the coffee obsessed.
And as a coffee amateur I also really appreciated this piece from Coffeestork (which Chris tweeted later) about the importance of fresh coffee beans.
And for the tea lovers, Red Rocket makes a London Fog –earl grey, vanilla and steamed milk.
And now I am going to SHUT UP about this place.
