God forgive me, but on hearing about the passing of Kofi Annan all I could think of was my favorite breakfast:
Covfefe and Kouign Amman
Black Covfefe and Kouign Amman. Thats how my brain works before covfefe.
In case youre not familiar with this hard to pronounce (kween-a-mon) pastry its a Belgian cake comprised of nothing more than buttery pastry layered with sugar that caramelizes to a lacquer coating in the oven. Often described as a cross between a croissant and brioche,
Id say its more like a puffy version of a palmier.
Eat the first KA at your own peril as they are addictive dont say I didnt warn you. I had my first at Les Madeleines in Salt Lake. Next thing I knew, I was making weekly trips down the mountain from Park City to satiate my craving. Then Whole Foods came to town, and if I got up early enough I could snag a fix right down the street. Alas, they are much harder to come by now that Im back in Motown; I even ventured to a local Whole Foods not a place I gladly shop - looking for them only to discover they dont make them in these parts. So I went through withdrawal cold turkey. It was not pretty but at least I lost a few pounds.
But in researching this post look what I discovered: theyre available at Trader Joes oh Noes! Now the whole ugly cycle is likely to begin again. Although on closer inspection I see the post on TJs KAs is from 2014. Odds are better than even that they no longer carry them because every. single. item. Ive ever discovered and come to love from Trader Joes has subsequently been discontinued. Pray thats the case with their do-it-yourself KAs as well, otherwise Ill be a junkie again as fast as you can say black coffee and a Kouign Amann please.
So have a good day, I have to run as my local Trader Joes opens at 8:00 am. Thanks a lot, Kofi Annan.

Another NON-AMERICAN died. So what.
Writing an eulogy for an airhead? Much adieu
Some COVFEFE is served with cream, sometimes with cream AND sugar. And then, there are those who prefer it just black.
RIP as best you can.
Trying to think of something mournful to say about this... but nothing yet. If something comes to mind, Ill throw it out there.
Kofi Annan was quite cozy with yasser arafat, nelson mandela, bammy and the castros.
He will not be missed.
I like his brother, Q.
Admired this man, for a UN Secretary General he wasn’t busy pushing communism or the destruction of Israel.
The UN went downhill fast after he left.
