I hope you feel better soon, take it easy and get plenty of rest. 🤗 Keep your eye on the hockey semi-finals to take your mind off the fever - DH is rooting for the Rangers and if they lose he's cheering for the Avalanche. How about you?

My usual dark roast black coffee this morning but planning to go to a coffee party this afternoon. The roastery where I buy my beans is celebrating their 5th anniversary with a party outdoors. It's not close to us so the only thing holding me back is the gas prices.
thanks haha the brother in llaw is rangers fan will be bolts in 7 i think or today avs win cup though i think

J and I went to the Farmer's Market this morning and I got a cold brew with oat milk and a lot of sugar.

And a sasparilla, and halvah, and cookies, and meringue, and pizza flavored allergen free crackers for J, and a book from the book mobile for J.

I went a little overboard.

have you figured out an escape plan?
I'm afraid. When I think of all the everyday items that I don't have to bring with me, how would I even survive one day? Washcloth, towel, measuring cups/spoons, coffee mug, dinner plate, silverware, dishcloth, dishtowel, cleaning supplies, vaccuum, mop, bedding...I've been here so many years, it just seems impossible.

sasparilla, and halvah
What are those 2 things?...Yum on the pizza crackers. I like tomato crackers. Did you get the cold brew at the farmer's market?

Drinking--- Half Cup Water, Half Cup Silk Next Milk, 1/3 Cup Hills Bros Hazelnut Cappuccino Powder, 1Tsp Pilon Instant Espresso. Microwaved for 2 minutes 40 seconds. Finally got it piping hot. But I think I would like it better with a little less cappuccino powder and a little bit of sugar added. I'll try that tomorrow.

Lari and I must have similar taste. 👍 I bought hummus at the farmer's market today and the vendor also had halva so I bought some. It's considered a Middle Eastern dessert - so good. It's typically made from ground seeds, nuts and sweetened with honey or sugar. There are different flavors but the one I bought was coffee, of course. :biggrin: (They had vanilla, chocolate and pistachio too.)

Those things will be provided for you. What is not provided you will find, You will be able to get out, around, live your own life... . but, you are aware of this. We have been over this before. You have to believe--nothing is impossible if you have faith.. in yourself, and are certain of what you want. You may have to give up all your 'experimental' coffees, but you would survive.

Thanks to neely neely for explaining. Mine was just plain, sesame and sugar, and that's all they had, so we were clearly not at the same Farmer's Market. Sasparilla is a kind od pop. Normally I don't drink pop, but it was a local company and sales go to the historical society and it was one of the original flavors from 1880.

You could start with paper plates, plastic utensils, and paper towels. It's not the most eco friendly, but it could last you a while. A police escort could help you bring everything that's yours personally, especially if it's packed ahead of time and won't take too long to pack.

And yes, the cold brew was at the market.

Half Cup Water, Half Cup Silk Next Milk, 1/4 Cup Hills Bros Hazelnut Cappuccino Powder, 1Tsp Pilon Instant Espresso, 1Tsp Honeeva Honey Cinnamon Sugar. Microwaved 2 minutes 40 seconds. Finished up that hazelnut cappuccino, I still have the Maxwell House one, which I think I like better. I'll have that later today probably.

Half Cup Water, Half Cup Silk Next Milk, 3TB Maxwell House International Hazelnut Cappuccino Powder, 1Tsp Pilon Instant Espresso, 2 Tsp Honeeva Honey Cinnamon Sugar. Microwaved 2 minutes 40 seconds. Good, but not perfect yet. I'll keep playing around with the amounts.

stopped for a large latte with oat milk & cinnamon
How many ounces do you usually get? I usually get the 12oz size.

Half Cup Water, Half Cup Silk Next Milk, 1/3 Cup Maxwell House Hazelnut Cappuccino. Microwaved for 2 mintues 40 seconds. I will probably have to go back to the glass measuring cup because the mug boiled over all over the microwave. What a mess! There was a shadow over the microwave this morning and I couldn't see into it very well. It boiled over at the end in less than 10 seconds!

Black and hot, 🔥 like the weather today
I wish it was hot here. It's 63 degrees in NY. We really only get July and August for hot weather. Maybe a little bit in September too.

Finished up the Maxwell House Hazelnut Cappuccino in a cup of Flax/Pea Milk. I thought I liked it, but I guess I don't. I'll probably just go back to vanilla. But I do have Amaretto, Pumpkin Spice, and Vanilla Caramel coming in the mail, so I'll give those a try. I don't think I've ever tried Amaretto powder before. The other two I've had before.

This sounds like an odd flavor for your coffee. I wonder if it's any good?
Are you going to try it? If so, please let us know what you think.

The usual dark roast black coffee this morning but I never get tired of it. Just ground a fresh supply of beans that will last a few days. (I usually grind enough for about 3 days so they stay fresh.)
