It's blueberry season around here, so I'm just eating blueberries with everything.

Also did a pretty good little (summer) chili on Sunday. Nothing fancy, just ground beef/pork mix (pure ground beef in Germany is too lean for stew/burgers), bell peppers, zucchini. I put in beef broth, a half-pint of beer (usually stout, but I only had Kölsch so used that) and some cocoa poweder for colour. For spices it's just 2-3 chipotles in adobo, some cumin and hatch chili powder.

McDonald’s and most other coffee taste like dirt compared to a Starbucks which taste like dark chocolate to me.

Starbucks is considered on par with McDonald's here in Melbourne AU, but we have a large Italian community so have full access to real coffee :lol:

Espresso is good. I thought Melbourne had a pretty good sized Greek community as well.

I figured. I would also prefer hot chocolate over coffee as well, sometimes a cappuccino is okay in this type of situation, too.
