Monday in the Morning

I enjoy Monday mornings.  In fact, I look forward to it, and start thinking about it from Sunday evening.  Mind you, I'm thinking about what I'm going to have for breakfast from dinnertime on Sunday night.  I imagine myself waking up early, around 6:30AM, getting dressed, and going into the kitchen to make coffee. 

The best coffee comes from my 1950-60ish Corningware percolator.  I think so anyway.  I love that coffee pot.  When I was little I had a play kitchen set complete with Corningware pots and pans, all white pieces, each with a little blue flower design.  My favorite piece was the coffee pot because it had fake coffee in it.  When I tipped the pot, making believe I was pouring the coffee, the liquid disappeared somewhere inside the pot.  Loved it!

Quite a few years ago I found a real coffee pot at a flea market.  Well, I had to grab it.  After that, when ever I would find one I'd buy it.  Now I own a few!  The large pot makes 9 cups, the smaller one makes 6 cups.  Weekdays I use the small pot and the aroma that comes from the perking coffee is heavenly.  I never had the same smells from electric coffee pots or the drip types. 

The best part of my morning is when I make the coffee.  My kitchen has the original, 1953 Chambers gas cook-top.  I set up the 1950's Corningware coffee pot and it happily perks away. 

Happy Monday!
