Tasty Tuesday!

"No one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee's frothy goodness."
-Sheik Abd-al-Kadir

Hello! As I am sitting here the sun is streaming through my window saying, "WAKE UP!" However, I cannot seem to do that today. Several night of poor sleep will do that to you! The recipe I have to share today is the perfect pick-me-up for days such as today. It is non-alcoholic, but has coffee AND chocolate! I don't think it gets much better than that! (but that is just my opinion!) Enjoy!

“Coffee should be black as Hell, strong as death, and sweet as love”
-Turkish Proverb

Silly Joke of the Day:

What did the necktie say to the hat?
..You go on ahead. I'll hang around for a while.

Have a great day and remember: Go Ahead & Indulge!
