If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would be celebrating the return of hot water. I tell you that the workmen took all day but that the thought of a lovely, warm shower before bed sounds like heaven.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would be sipping on Earl Grey tea and enjoying scones made with dried strawberries. I say I got the inspiration from Melissa Clark’s Strawberry Scone Loaf, but just made my true and trusted basic scone recipe from my true and trusted Be-Ro cook book, using buttermilk instead of milk. You say that they taste really good and I say I really like these dried strawberries and wouldn’t they be good in granola. You say yes.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about the weather, about some beautiful sunny days with bright blue skies that lift the spirits.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about the news, about how there was very little to smile about..another school shooting, Ukraine….
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about what we have been reading, watching and listening to. I say there are so many good podcasts and series to follow that sometimes it is hard to decide what to choose – and you agree.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would naturally ask you to stay for dinner. It is nothing fancy, I say, just a tortellini soup with some bread and cheese, and you say that sounds good, just as well I have a bottle of red wine with me. We laugh and settle down for the evening ahead.
Also entered in the weekend coffee break hosted by Natalie the Explorer.
