Time For Coffee

I'm a relatively new coffee drinker. I used to hate it. I didn't even like the smell of it. Now I have a cup every morning and I love the smell of it. *shrugs* My preference is to have it sweet (not overly) and with milk or cream. I can't drink it black. I also don't really care for unflavored coffee. My most favorite is Green Mountain's Pumpkin Spice. No other brand really compares. Even Starbucks. In general, Green Mountain makes really good coffee and I have liked most of what I have tried from them. I buy their pumpkin spice coffee when it goes on clearance (mostly from Target) and stockpile it so I can drink it all year long. I also buy their Cinnamon Sugar Cookie and stockpile that for the year. My newest find is Green Mountain Maple Pecan. This is delicious! I might start stockpiling this one as well :)

Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite coffee (or other fall drink) and when you started drinking coffee! Greg and I were on vacation and went to Starbucks early one morning and we saw a boy on a skateboard with a some kind of blended coffee drink. He was around 12 or so! I don't remember what I was drinking when I was 12, but coffee was not involved. A lot has changed. I only got one comment last week so I don't know if anyone is reading this or not ☕️

Remember Me?

Ok, not really but let's just roll with it. I'm not entirely sure how this is going to go. I didn't have much of a following back when I was active and those few people have almost certainly moved on. If I can manage to get a "following" again, I'll try to keep this going. Help me out and tell everyone you know! Read this awesome blog - it's full of wit, wisdom and fun! Remember, white lies are ok.

December is around the corner (🙀) so I'll work on December Daily. You can see my previous December Daily in the archives. I can't remember what I took pictures of, so I'll go back and look, too. It will be new for all of us.

For today (possibly every Wednesday) is a recipe. Correction - recipes! Correction - Halloween recipes! Are you going to a Halloween party? Just want to have a festive dinner on All Hallows' Eve and ignore all the cries for candy at the door? I got you covered. Ashley (self proclaimed non chef) from BuzzFeed, tested 3 of the most pinned Halloween recipes from Pinterest. They are:

Skull Pizza
Chicken Boo-dle Soup
Deviled Alien Eggs

She gave the thumbs up to all of these. I watched the video and in my opinion, I would say the skull pizza and deviled eggs look better than the soup for a party. But if you are making dinner and it's a cold night, the soup would be perfect. Of all 3, I think the deviled eggs look the easiest to make and the appearance is going to win a lot of "ewww's" which for Halloween, is the desired reaction! I tried to get the video to post directly here but I wasn't able to so the link to the YouTube video is below.

Hopefully these recipes will inspire you to try something fun on Halloween or to take to a party. I know as we get older we can lose some of the spirit that days like Halloween offer us. I've been guilty of it myself and didn't dress up for work a few times. However, all it takes is a walk around the neighborhood or down the seasonal isle in the drugstore and I quickly feel the Halloween inspiration take hold! Try to let that inner child emerge again and have a skull pizza for dinner or chicken boo-dle soup. Smile as you enjoy your boo-utiful creations and talk about when you were a kid and what you did for Halloween. It's sure to be a fun conversation 🎃

What was your favorite costume? What was the candy you looked forward to the most in your treat bag? Leave me a comment and tell me.

I got so excited when I saw this! King Arthur Flour has made digital backgrounds that will work in Zoom, Slack, Teams & GoToMeeting! T...
