Half Cup Water, Half Cup 2% Milk, and I just dumped the rest of the Hills Bros Classic Cappuccino powder in there to use it up. There was probably like half a cup. Ha! Microwaved 3 minutes, added powder last 40 seconds. Back to vanilla tomorrow. Yay!

Dark roast black coffee this morning and DH picked up an Iced Americano for me this afternoon. (While visiting our daughter abroad I had a flat white every day. I learned they only make one size as opposed to 3 sizes here in the states.)

Where is abroad, the UK? What size cup did they have? I like 12oz.

Cup of water, 1/3 Cup Hills Bros French Vanilla Cappuccino Powder, 1Tsp Pilon Instant Espresso. Microwaved it for 3 minutes, added powders last 1 minute. It wasn't very hot for 3 minutes. This new microwave is so weird. It doesn't get your food or drink hot enough, but it boils/explodes all over. Makes no sense. Panasonic is the brand. The old microwave only took 2 minutes to heat stuff up.

You have to look to see how many watts your microwave is. You may have had a stronger one, with the old microwave.

Lower wattages, mean that it will take longer to heat/cook things.

Most microwaves have power adjustments for lowering, as in defrosting.. and timers as in popcorn.

They make a flat white in a 5-6 oz. cup.
That's too small! That wouldn't satisfy me, I need my 12oz. I'd have to order 2 of them. What is a ristretto?

Drinking-- Cup of 2% Milk with 1/4 Cup Hills Bros French Vanilla Cappuccino Powder. Microwaved 3 minutes, added powder halfway through. I hope my other cappuccino I ordered gets here soon, this is almost gone! 😲

2nd cup of the day was cup of Great Value Lactose Free Whole Milk with 1/3 Cup Hills Bros French Vanilla Cappuccino Powder. I think it tastes better with half milk, half water, so I'll try that tomorrow.
