Iced Coffee Time
We've reached the point of summer when I sometimes can't stand the thought of a hot beverage in the morning. Last Sunday morning I awoke after feeling hot all night, and found a forgotten bottled Frappucino in the back of the fridge. It was almost frozen solid, because that's what happens to things that get pushed to the back of my fridge. I wasn't even 100% sure it was still good. But I ran it under hot water for long enough to de-solidify most of it, and drank the entire bottle in one go. In that moment it was the best thing I had ever tasted. (Happily, I didn't get sick.)
After that, in an attempt to class things up, I decided to brew a pitcher of Pioneer Woman's iced coffee. I'm having my first cup this morning, and it's delicious! (The 1% milk instead of Coffee-Mate is better for me, too.) But how do you keep all the sweetener from settling at the bottom?
In other news, I patchworked a Google map of Manhattan (with neighborhoods and pertinent areas marked) and taped it up in my cube where I'll see it every day. I want to have an excellent sense of location and direction when I'm in NYC. Do you think I'm excited??
