Breakfast. The most important meal of the day.
Joe brought me a present from his beautiful wife and my sweet sister-in-law (aka: Robin – sister of my heart) when we met in Springfield a few weeks ago. She made me some perfectly earthy cinnamon and all the spices of autumn-seasoned pumpkin butter, beautifully presented in a prismed jar. She also sent some of her delicately tangy and ambrosial apple-pear jam.
Breakfast. The most scrumptious meal of the day.
I brought them home and showed them off under the pretense of sharing, but I hide them in the refrigerator, moving them frequently, so that on early, dark mornings I can toast some thick slices of multi-grain bread and have one of each: apple-pear jam and pumpkin butter (with real butter, of course…does that go without saying?). And my black coffee. My very dark, very strong black coffee.
In my soul, I am Julie London and this is how I sing about black coffee (and anything I am really into). Yeah. That’s right, I am this passionate about black coffee.
A good start to my morning…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: Call Robin because I am almost out of my delicate, almost-floral bread spreads.

Sounds wonderful! I think I shall have some black coffee(with cream and a teaspoon of sugar.) Not quite ready for black yet.
You are so funny, Jeanie. That was my first pumpkin butter ever and I thought it was “not so good.” I sent it with Joe and told him to tell you all that if you didn’t like it, just throw it away. Glad to know you enjoyed it.
L O V E it, Robin! Sooooo delicious!!
Yes to breakfast! And yes to Robin’s homemade sweets!!!
