Hello, how are you? It’s great to see you at this week’s Weekend Coffee Share!
If we were having coffee today, I would probably meet you at the local café, simply because I need some fresh air and I need to get out of the house for a while.
I’d greet you with a hug and then I’d order a “Pharisäer” (engl.: Pharisee), a hot coffee with rum and whipped cream that’s a national drink from the Nordfriesland region of Germany (where I spent many a childhood holiday). The name does not derive from the Bible, though. It was the name of the homestead (Pharisäerhof) where it originated.
If you’re not into coffee, I would recommend a Tote Tante (engl.: Dead Aunt), basically the same, just with hot chocolate instead of coffee.
It’s the sort of day today that warrants warming up a bit more – the windy is bitingly cold, and the weather changed from snow, slush and freezing back to snow. Needless to say, it’s cold and nasty out.
