Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Frappé Friday

It's autumn! What speaks autumn better than pumpkin & spice? The aroma from pumpkin pies baking in the oven ignite holiday spirits well before the holidays begin. Even without the pie, the addition of pumpkin spice adds zest to varying foods bringing about visions of upcoming celebrations. For today, which is a Friday in 2016, attention will not be on a food but actually a beverage. Not just any beverage but a coffee. Not just any coffee, not even one that is freshly brewed still piping hot. This coffee is a frappé. That makes today Frappé Friday! Some people pronounce it as "frap" while others say "frah-pay". Either way you say it, agreement stands on the satisfying taste of this not hot but chilled coffee treat with its flavor being pumpkin and spice only if that is what you prefer. Endless possibilities!

October 7 is...

If you are not already familiar with the frappé, a quizzical thought might enter your mind as to exactly "what is a frappé?" It has already been stated it is a coffee, chilled not hot. But it is the 'icing on the cake' so to speak that sets it off. The frappé is a chilled heavily foam-covered coffee drink! If you have it served with a straw, be sure to sip the flavorful brew through the foam without the straw. Best when you are left with a foam mustache!
A few things about the frappé...
1. Its origin dates back to the 1950s in Greece.
2. The word frappé originates from the French word "frapper" meaning to chill.

5. The frappé has become a hallmark of post-war outdoor Greek coffee culture.
