Not being able to face another day of weak instant coffee (even if it is VIA it’s just not real coffee to me) I trekked on over to the mall for a cup of bold to start the day yesterday.
Sitting through my weekly teleconference without coffee would have been torture! (See below for how you can help me avoid this happening again.)
Breakfast was quickly prepared while my headset was on mute. :)
Last week I bought some chicken to boil for Chibi’s upset tummy. Turns out it didn’t matter what she ate so I had leftover chicken to use up. I grilled it up the other night and turned it into chicken salad for lunch yesterday.
Nom nom nom. All stirred up with green onions, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, olive oil mayo, Dijon, and dill. Rolled up with lettuce and light Laughing Cow.
Afternoon snackeroo was cooooookies…which apparently went straight into my piehole before getting photographed.
The evening was dedicated to catching up on a few more episodes of The Walking Dead now that my friend Ray is back from his vacation. Always the great dinner guest he arrived with crusty rolls and flowers. :)
And took on my role as food paparazzi while I cooked.
“Fancy” hot dogs for dinner. Those yummy, fresh Sooke pork sausages from The EdGe…grilled up and served on the crusty rolls with old white cheddar and condiments of choice.
I like ketchup, mustard and a smidge of mayo.
Salad and baked fries (potato & yam) on the side.
We made it through episodes 4 & 5 before calling it a night. Only one episode left!! Hopefully there’s a Season Two peeking around the corner soon.
After he left I was feeling snacky and grabbed an Altaulfo mango from the fruit bowl. I don’t even generally care much for mangos, but after learning about this Philippino variety I am a little bit addicted. So deeelish!
And now…a very important question for my coffee loving friends…
As you know my coffee maker bit the dust the other day. As you also know this is a TRAGEDY around here. It owed me nothing so instead of trying to repair the old gal I’m shopping for a new caffeine maker.
Via Airmiles (ie: FREE coffee maker!) my choices are as follows:
- Krups Thermal Precision Coffee Maker – 1300 points
- Cuisinart Coffee Maker with Hot Water System – 1100 points
- Cuisinart Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew – 1900 points
- Delonghi Exclusivo Coffee Maker – 1050 points
- KitchenAid Architect Thermal Coffee Maker – 1450 points
Do any of you have one of these?
OR… I can just cough up some of my hard earned money and buy something at the store (and use those Airmiles for something else…food processor? espresso machine?).
OR… Tiffaney has a very nice coffee maker she has generously offered to lend me because she never uses it (how is that possible?!) but with the amount of coffee I make I just think I should have my own.
What the heck should I do? Opinions please! :)
