I would have loved to have written you each a private message, but alas-I wouldn’t have been able to send so many and been able to write this week’s columns!

Turning 51 does have it’s blessings.  Give me a while and I’m sure I’ll think of more than the obvious of having such a wonderful world of fabulous women friends here on fab40 and a terrific family to boot!

This week I wasn’t particularly on the top of my game, but I did decide on a subject-COFFEE.

Coffee has always been my beverage of choice.  My mom got me hooked.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned my allergy to dairy products-so milk was out of the question.  There were no such products as soy, almond or rice milks to substitute in my developing years.  

Mom is also a coffee fiend, so at the time-giving me a hot drink of coffee in the mornings made sense.  And there was no pediatrician to refute the subject or make more healthful choices available.  

She made Sanka.  Can you imagine????

The reason I’m bringing up Coffee-well, I couldn’t drink any for a good portion this week.  Seems my stomach in conjunction with 3 darvocets in 24 hours and a truck load of pain, simply do not agree with each other.  I spent an entire day doing something that would just be too much information to share with you all.  

My diet-diet caffeine free cola and chicken noodle soup.  Oh and tummy tamer tea.

But I figured with Thanksgiving dinner coming up-talking about coffee with desssert would probably be a good topic.  

So tune in Wednesday-we‘re talking “how to put together a coffee bar“-perfect with all that pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies!
