I'm the most boring coffee drinker. I drink it black, and I'm good with just plain old coffee. The Blue Mountain coffee in Jamaica was really good. Too pricy here to buy it. I don't know how anyone can tell whether or not they are drinking decent coffee with all the extras they put in. Besides, no matter where I go they have everything I put in my coffee. I've never been to a Starbucks. There was a coffee place called Gloria Jeans that was in a local mall that had decent black coffee for about $1.

WH got me a Dunkin Donuts shirt that says, "friends don't let friends drink Starbucks." Medium coffee light and sweet if I can afford the calories. At home I have the Dunkin Donut k-cups and I have one cup in the morning...2 teaspoon sugar and 4 teaspoon 2% milk. Damn having to count calories.

Anywhere but Starbucks = black coffee. Period.

If I'm forced to Starbucks, it has to be doctored right the hell up to the point where you can't tell it's Starbucks anymore. I'll have what Jrazz is having.

Subway = veggie with provolone, light on the honey mustard, spinach

NO OLIVES EVER!!!!

In response to GAhurts query about whether I go ahead and eat the pickles that touched my sandwich - a very strong NO to that! I HATE pickles, and if they touch the sandwich the juice flavors the bread so I have to tear it off. If they're just sitting on the plate, I'll scoop them off and give them away. If I were sitting next to Jrazz we'd both be happy - she could have all my pickles!

olives stuffed with anchovies

^^^^^THIS

When I was a little girl, my dad and I would always get so excited when we found a restaurant, bar (family-friendly) or cafe that had these. Last year before he passed, I bought a little jar of these at Trader Joe's for us to share. Best bar snack ever.

I can't fathom some of the coffee orders. I just ask for a small black coffee with some room at the top so I can add cream. I'm kind of boring that way.

Edited to add that I think pickles are the best part of the sandwich. I've been known to steal pickles from everyone else at the table and add them to my burger/tuna/cheese/whatever sandwich. It's very hard to pull apart a grilled cheese sandwich, but it's sooo worth it once you add in all the pickles.

Spanish brands of olives stuffed with anchovies are THE BEST. I am addicted. Have to buy small cans because I eat them all at one sitting.

My Starbucks order is one that's no longer on the menu, then I bastardize it even further!

Grande raspberry mocha
2 extra shots of raspberry
1 shot of vanilla
heavy cream instead of milk
no whip cream


My Subway order is almost always the same:
6in subway club
Honey oat bread
Extra provolone cheese
Light mayo
heavy mustard
with the following veggies:
lettuce
Tomato
Onion
banana peppers
bell pepper
avocado
salt and pepper
Oil and vinegar
Then, not only do they have to make the sandwich to order, I have to have every ingredient spread evenly so that there's the same ratio of ingredients in each bite. (I hate, hate, HATE taking a bite of nothing but bread and vinegar).

Rebreather - I think it's perfectly okay to have a martini and not actually eat the olives. I'm more of a Bombay Sapphire, very dry, slightly dirty, one olive kinda guy. (I do love olives, by the way)

Gotta have my coffee black whenever I have it. Usually I prefer tea.

I always think my order is easy...but they always have a hard time with it.

Yesterday:

Me: One italian sub. Please only put on half the amount of meat you normal do.

Waiter: Ummmmmmm ?

Me: It is too much meat for me and I just take it off and throw it away. Sooo can you just put on half the amount of meat?

Waiter: Pause

Waiter: Ummmm - maybe I can request "light on the meat"?

Am I really asking for something that difficult? I don't see the sense in getting it just to toss it?

Let's not even talk about me trying to get a chicken cheesesteak (ie Philly cheesesteak but with chicken instead of beef).

No coffee here either.

Starbucks:

Either a venti peppermint hot chocolate or a venti no water chai with an extra pump. Pretty easy, right?

Subway:

Turkey-bacon-avocado on honey oat
Provolone
Toasted
Lettuce
Tomato
Jalapeno
Salt and pepper

That's it. It's pretty much all I have there.

I LOVE that we're all bonding over our Subway orders!!

The only thing better than olives is tapenade ... preferably provencal tapenade.

Yes - Oh God YES!!! (NIK, we're still friends but hanging out next time is going to be a little weird)


Me: One italian sub. Please only put on half the amount of meat you normal do.

This is almost EXACTLY what I was alluding to with my "meat order", EvenKeel! I end up picking out half the meat, or two thirds if I get a sandwich from a traditional deli, because of the looks and confusion when I try to order "less meat." It was even worse when I requested "less fatty meat."

For anyone who has not yet dined with me here (those who have have witnessed the circus) I will order meat but I will pick it apart when it comes so that all the fatty parts are gone. Woe is someone sitting next to me when I have ordered corned beef.

No. I really don't think that is ok to have a martini and not eat the olives, lol, but I'm not mich for the dirty. go figure. I am not allowed to drink Sapphire. My spouse put me on sapphire probation years ago. Long story. *ahem*

I confuse the people at Starbucks when I order because I pick a skinny flavor (ie- sugar free syrup) but tell them heavy cream.

I'm not going for low fat, just low carb.

I'm not a regular (MrH is) so they try to argue sometimes. "That's not what you want. Don't you mean skim milk?"

I think the Starbucks menu is kind of designed to sound obnoxious. It's mostly just hot liquid in a Small, Medium or Large cup but it starts pretentious and goes from there .

Grande, Skinny, Caramel Macchiato, No whip.

Although I finally had a Pumpkin Spice Latte the other day and I just ordered it the way it was. And it was lovely .
