French Roast and Bagel

I bought a garlic bagel on the way to work this morning. I was dripping sweat all over the store. I leave my helmet on in these situations where I am in and out of the store really quickly. That way they know why I'm sweating and they're reminded that some people chose to get around on a bicycle instead of a 4-door F-350 with smoked windows and a duck head cover on the trailer hitch. I bet they just wanted me out of there.

I toasted the bagel at work and made a pot of French roast. The garlic alters the taste of the French roast into a very strong flavor that I love. In the past, I've always thought the two foods went together well, but this morning I realized a new flavor is created by combining them both. I'm sure this flavor isn't for everyone. My sister, for example, might suggest that I just eat dog turds instead, because they are probably a strong flavor too. I'm not sure that's what she'd say, but it sounds like her. She has a great sense of humor and can stab a nice one in ya and still make you laugh about it.

Anyway, this flavor combination is one of life's little pleasures.

Just not with ya on the French Roast and garlic thing. Intriguing though.

I think French Roast goes perfectly with cinnamon chip scones, or anything cinnamon for that matter.

French Roast is elixir of the gods.

No, no, no! French roast needs something sweet, not savory! You must have desensitized taste buds. As for me, I'm a delicate flower. Ha ha ha!

Hi! Just tracking you back from your comment on my blog awhile ago... I was the "next one" who blogged about tofu. :) Hope you enjoyed it by the way. I see you are really into biking, I think that is a pretty noble thing to do.

I have to agree with your sis and other two commenters, nada on the garlic and french roast.
