It's in the 60's here today and it's March 1st. I'm not complaining or anything because I love warm weather. It's just...different. I thought March was supposed to come in like a lion. I guess the lamb decided to take the lion's place.
And now we come to the coffee drink saga. Today was a coffee kind of day. Some days are like that. We get out our recipe book with the recipe for copycat Starbucks Fraps. We mix the ingredients in the blender all the while getting more and more excited for our drinks. We put it in glasses and add whipped cream and mini chocolate chips to garnish the tantalizing Java Chip Frappuccinos. We take pictures of it and then go to dig into our lovely looking drinks. Ew...one sip and we couldn't even drink the rest. It was so sour. The milk? No. We, er Bekah (the only one who is brave enough to smell milk), smells the milk and it's fine. What could it be? We think we narrowed it down to the pectin (the secret ingredient). We had to throw it all out. But what were we going to go about coffee? I decided to whip up some iced coffee but instead of what I usually do (just add ice cubes) I put the coffee (Peets, we can't waste any of our Peets! J), some cream, chocolate syrup, and the ice into the blender. We came up with some good coffee that didn't taste sour. Thank goodness!
