Once upon a time, there was a sweet, young mother who enjoyed stopping at McDonald's daily for a cold, tall cup of Iced Coffee (sugar-free vanilla, please and thank you). After many months of this, the young mother got a glimpse of her bumpy tummy in the mirror and proclaimed:
"Death to you, blasted McDonald's Iced Coffee!! You have turned my jiggly, bread-doughlike tummy into a LUMPY jiggly, bread-doughlike tummy! Be off with you!"
And she swore off McDonald's Iced Coffee, forever.
Turns out, "forever" lasted about a year. Who knew that "forever" was only a year long?! And on that sweltering hot, lacking sleep the night before, day; no more or less than 365 days (or more like "approximately") after that "forever" proclamation, that Iced Coffee never tasted so good on
my her lips.
After several days of trips to the McDonald's Drive-Thru, the sweet, young mother decided that she could NOT revert to her old habits...that, while her tummy was still jiggly and bread-doughlike, the lumpiness had definitely become less noticeable, and who wants THAT look back?
Not me...I mean, not she.
Then, an angel from Heaven appeared in the form of "The Pioneer Woman" with a recipe for a homemade iced coffee (and trust me, brewing a pot of coffee and letting it sit overnight does NOT make a good iced coffee...), and all was right with the world again.
The sweet, young mother can have her iced coffee and drink it too...(especially when mixed with Fat Free French Vanilla creamer)...and they lived happily ever after.
Yum! I drink fat free french vanilla too every morning! Fat free hazlenut is also yum.ReplyDelete
That Pioneer Woman, you gotta give it to her, congrats on making your OWN iced coffee!ReplyDelete
Mmmmm...Saw this on her blog the other day and have been wanting to try it. Ironically enough, I can't seem to find the energy to make it to the kitchen to brew some. Funny how that works out, isn't it?ReplyDelete
this is why I love my Keurig. any flavour, any time, hot or cold...and I can even make hot chocolate for the kids === an extra few minutes of quiet for mom. I tell you, this coffee machine is worth its' weight in gold!ReplyDelete
Love that! I am a coffee every morning kinda gal...the bad part of that is my coffee contains half and half. Yes, creamy and delicious half and half. I use Splenda trying to trick myself into trading off but I don't think it's working it. I also have a bread dough tummy.....you know it's bad when those "high school skinny" commercials actually start to make sense. :/ReplyDelete
I bet my husband would love this. I will have to try it for him.ReplyDelete
I must confess I have NEVER had frozen coffee!!! I never know what I should try! I must be one in a million out there. lolReplyDelete
And how much $$ are you saving by not going through the drive thru every day?!? That's my reason to stay away from it....although after reading this, I am totally craving one. So thanks a lot;)ReplyDelete
Oh, are you serious? I'm so cheap, and would love to be able to make this at home...yum!ReplyDelete
Iced coffee is my new vice! Why do all things good have to be so bad?!?!ReplyDelete
Glad you found a new trick that you like just as much! I use coffeemate too; hazelnut though :)
