What would Kermit the Frog think about The Coffeepot Cookbook? This is an important question. YOU may not think about it, but this is the type of question that keeps me up at night. Fortunately, I won’t have to spend time thinking about this particular puzzler any longer.
I got an email this morning from a gentleman named Seth, who, coincidentally is in Italy, and…well, I’ll let him speak for himself:
My name is Seth. I have been living on the road for 10 years, touring with [from Walt: a live performance of popular children’s show which shall remain namelss]. I am in hotels 47-50 weeks a year. Most of the time, I travel domestically in the USA, but more recently I have been spending about 6 months a year internationally. I have been fixing meals in my room for quite a long time. Currently in Italy I bought a electric Kettle/ coffee pot and some metal lined (because I couldn’t find glass) Thermos(es). A vegetarian on my current tour handed me your book. Good read, very nice.
My schedule can have me work from sun up to sun down or three days off; I never know what shopping opportunities will or wont be available. I constantly look for what we call crate foods/ suitcase foods for days when there are no food sources available. Your book has given me some new things to try.
FYI when I am making pasta I take the dry ingredients and put them in the thermos ad boiling water and close it up for the time it takes to cook, freeing the Kettle up. We also use the American coffee maker to make soups (not run through but heated and water added to). Also the clothes Iron can make good sandwiches and if you are careful, cookies.
I don’t know how it fits into your diet but wakame seaweed rocks and in dryed form stores well, great for a bad shopping day meal vegetable.
Last but not least in your book you have a section on extra essentials, Zinc, Oil of oregano, tea tree oil, chlorophyll, and vitamin C. In what forms do you have them and how do you implement them into your food?
If I get any good pictures I send them your way.

Thanks, Seth! Sooooo…..it seems a copy of my Coffeepot Cookbook has found its way to Italy, and at this very moment, may be keeping Kermit, Grover, or maybe even Miss Piggy alive and healthy for an appreciative crowd of kids in Italy! Isn’t that heart warming? >sniff<
Um, Seth? Would it be inappropriate for me to ask you, to um, maybe slip a mention of the cookbook into your dialog while you’re on stage? Like, I’m thinkin’ that when the Cookie Monster asks you for cookies, you can, you know, hand him an iron and some cookie dough, and tell him, “Things are going to be a little different around here, from now on, Cookie…thanks to The Jamaican In China’s Coffeepot Cookbook! Here’s your iron!”
Just a thought. Let me know!
No actual endorsement of the Coffeepot Cookbook by any celebrity is intended. Appreciated, but not intended.
