This post is about my morning cup of coffee. A little while back I got a
Senseo coffee maker, which I totally love! They use coffee pods, I guess if that makes me a pod person then I'm okay with that. Anyway, shortly after I got the Senseo I was reading on a coffee website about milk frothers so I got myself one and let me tell you I am so spoiled with my homemade nonfat lattes at home that I will never get outside coffee again if I have a choice. I have saved a lot of money, money that the big coffee place with star in the title will not be getting. HAHAHAHA!!!!
So I make these lattes, which I call lattes because they have a lot of milk in them, but I'm pretty sure that a latte is not made like this, but I was so excited after I made and tasted the first one that I exclaimed to no one in my empty kitchen that "I am a barrista!!", which is a total delusion on my part I know. (Wow that was one sentence, I don't call my self the Queen of the run-on sentence for nothing, why put a period when a comma will do just fine!)
ANYWAY--Here is what I do. I put exactly 1/2 cup of milk into the microwave for exactly 44 seconds. Then I pour it in the milk frother and plunge it exactly 9 times. I pour the frothed milk into a large mug and run the Senseo coffee into it on the 8 oz. setting. Then I put flavored creamer into it, the current flavor is Coconut. It's SO good!
You may be wondering what this windy meaningless post is leading to. Here it is: The Senseo coffee comes out in two places so you can make two cups at once is you want. But I dont so when the coffee comes out into the white milk it leaves two brown spots which look like eyes to me. So then when I pour in the creamer I put it where the mouth should be, so every morning my latte smiles at me:
Sometimes my coffee resembles Eric Cartman from South Park, on those days I shout "Respect Mah Authoriteh" before I take the first sip.
Okay, now you know what a goofball I really am. To most of you that is no secret. Fun IS where you find it, fortunately for me I never have to look very far or very hard.
