It’s spring break around campus. Students are scarce and faculty are not to be seen. Staff, however, are all required to come in and so here I am. It’s been a long weekend and little sleep has taken place and even less will be taking place since I have yet to finish my paintings for the wedding that’s in 3 days. So when I see the Daily Meal’s Pinterest board titled “Coffee Time is the Best Time” I’m so on it.
I don’t like drinking coffee on a workday. I rarely need to be productive enough to keep up with the caffeine. But some days the smell of coffee is all I need to feel a little better. When I was a student, my adviser used to make a fresh pot of thick black brew and the smell was fantastic. I miss that there is no one around with coffee during spring break but I suppose I could make some effort and make my own. I’ve got the emergency equipment in my desk behind my file folders.
Coffee as a pure elixir is great. I love it on the weekends. But it’s also a fantastic ingredient. From the Pinterest board I made my way to a slideshow of “7 Delicious Things To Make with leftover Coffee”. Here are two recipes I think not only look good but need to be made. I also really need to get on buying that ice cream maker because that STILL hasn’t happened yet.
