OK. So its not what you thought. But I couldn't help myself!
My affair is with coffee. I used to drink coffee several times a day. I loved it. I looked forward to waking up to have it…I couldn’t wait to have lunch so I could have my dessert with it….and sometimes when I was tired when the kids got home from school , I would have another cup to keep me going.
|Green tea with milk & honey...mmmmm|
Sadly when I didn’t have it I would end up with the most excruciating migraine. Loved the taste, but hated the hold it had on me. So last year I gave up coffee. I became a tea ONLY girl. My green tea has some caffeine but nothing compared to my beloved coffee. After a few very tired weeks & lots of Ibuprofen, I made it. I wouldn’t even allow myself decaf. I didn’t see the point if it didn’t have caffeine. Now that’s all changed…..
In all the years of enjoying coffee people told me I should invest in a Keurig brewer. I was just too cheap to pay that much for a machine to just make coffee. But this xmas my husband really wanted one (of course..now that I don‘t drink it). As a surprise, I bought him one.
|See my sad tea pot crying in the corner?|
I’m in love again. I have no idea how that machine can make it taste that good? I now have bought myself French decaf and look forward to it everyday! I know it’s his gift, but its insanely good . I’m sorry green tea….I love you…but I’m still going to have my coffee ( decaf anyway ) .
Here’s a yummy dessert recipe using coffee ……..
