Unplanned Blogging Hiatus

I wanted to take this time to say THANK YOU to everyone who has stopped by to read my blog posts or chose to follow From the Market to the Plate.  Due to challenges that my family are currently going through, I’m having to step away from blogging for now.  When things improve, I will be back.


UPDATE (4/10/14): The plan is to return to blogging here on May 5th.  I hope you will come back to check out my Meatless Monday post for that day.

The Coffee Hop

Michael Di Gesu thought it would be fun to have a blog hop where we could share what we like about coffee. 

I think I should first mention that I don't drink coffee everyday.  I'm more of a couple of times a week coffee drinker.

What do I like about coffee?  I like the aroma of a freshly brewed cup of coffee.  It's like a wake up jolt to my senses when I'm feeling overly tired.  I know that once I drink that coffee, that kick of caffeine is going to help wake me up.  

For me, there is a downside to drinking too much coffee.  If I drink more than one cup of coffee, the caffeine gets me a bit wired and jittery.  I also seem to become way more talkative than usual.  

And now I'd like to leave you with a few quotes from some famous coffee drinkers:

"I never laugh until I've had my coffee."
~ Clark Gable

"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons."
~T.S. Eliot

"The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce."
~ Oliver Wendall Holmes Sr.

"Sleep is a symptom of caffeine deprivation."
~ Author Unknown
