Coffee Cookery and The Coffee Shop

14 01 2010

Been thinking a lot about coffee today. My friend had given me “The Coffee Cookbook,” but I haven’t made any recipes from it yet. I was going to post the link to the book, but it doesn’t seem to be available online. If you’re curious, you could probably ask about it at a Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop or go to Coffee Kids: Grounds for Hope organization and find something else to get your coffee fix (the books’ proceeds support Coffee Kids). I want to try the chocolate lava muffins recipe very soon. Maybe for Valentine’s Day?

I also discovered a fun blog called The Coffee Shop. I’m looking forward to hearing about her coffee adventures. Her blog has a giveaway for a starbucks card through Saturday, so be sure to visit soon.

Harnessing Toddler Energy

6 01 2009

My new theory on solving the world’s energy crisis is to use up some of my toddlers’ supply.  The other day I was trying to film them singing Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law and all you could see were streaks of red and white running in front of the Christmas tree.

This morning at 5:45 AM, when I could barely walk in a straight line from exhaustion, my one year old is squealing with delight and bouncing up and down in his crib.  I sat with a cup of coffee for an hour and a half while he ran from toy to toy wearing himself out.  I went back to bed then, and got a few more winks in, but as I was hitting the good part of my dream my other bundle of energy wakes up and yells to me “It’s awake time!  See the light, see outside!  Let’s go down, come on mom!”

This is the reason I am addicted to coffee.  I think I may need to invest in an expresso machine.

You are what you drink?

I found a fun quiz online that tells you what kind of coffee drink suits your personality.  According to the results I am Expresso- bold, exciting and like to do my own thing.  Well, I don’t know about that.  Exciting?  My life seems to be only about wiping noses, butts and floors these days.  So, what kind of coffee drink are you?
