This morning the worse thing in the world happened! My coffee pot would not brew. Of course I went into instant panic. You know what they say, "The elephants I can handle the gnats drive me crazy." Lucky for me about this time Larry, my brother, e-mailed to say his was coming down and bringing this new coffee he wanted me to try. I explained the situation with the coffee maker. As brothers most of the time do, he had a solution. He was bringing an old coffee maker he uses in his office. Whew, I didn't have to get dressed and go to Wal-Mart at 6:30 a.m. The people at Wal-Mart have no idea how grateful they should be.
He brought these wonderful Brazilian Espresso coffee beans, that a friend had sent him. It is imported and distributed by Joy Brazil Coffee, Inc.
Now when someone has just saved your life, it is only good manners to do something to thank them, right. Remember I haven't had coffee yet so it can't be anything too complicated. I open the "icebox" and there is that big wonderful bowl of Icebox Spoon Rolls dough that I made yesterday. I throw enough dough into a muffin pan to make 4 of these babies. Brush them with a little melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. I am saved. When they have finished baking and the fabulous new coffee has brewed I serve the rolls with butter and Sweet Potato Butter (that's a post for later).
You would have thought I had made him a 5 cheese omelet, home fries and sausage gravy and biscuits the way he was moaning over those rolls and coffee.
Just goes to show you, it's the little things that drive you crazy and the little things that make us happy.
