Today’s post is almost an extension of yesterday’s Thinking Out Loud because I have a ton of randomness to discuss with you on this Good Friday with Passover to begin at sundown.
Should we talk cookie dough or coffee first? Hmm.
It almost makes sense to start with coffee since I am currently drinking a cup but how can anyone choose coffee over cookie dough when faced with both in the same question?
If I am in the mood to eat cookie dough then I am going to eat cookie dough and I don’t want to be limited to a dinky little cup traditionally used for pudding that’s packed in a child’s lunch box.
I get the concept of course, really I do, but this two-bite little cup of dough would not be enjoyable for someone like me, especially since I would first be getting into my cookie dough groove after finishing the two spoonful serving.
For me this cookie dough cup is like taking just a sliver of cake, as my grandmother would say.
Why bother with JUST A SLIVER?
So I am no scientist or anything but I am convinced that flavored coffee does not stay hot as long as a regular cup of coffee.
I am telling you — every time I brew a flavor, such as the Caramel Vanilla Cream I am drinking now, it gets colder much quicker than a regular cup of coffee and yes, I have tried using the same mug because I do think some mugs keep beverages warmer longer.
I should really conduct some sort of coffee experiment with my son over this little spring break with the questions, hypothesis, variables (look how much I recall from science!) and have him test and graph the findings.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to have finally spotted Love Grown Foods at the Fresh Market near my house!
I don’t shop at Fresh Market often, as gorgeous as it is, because their pricing plus majority of product selection just doesn’t match my needs but they have the Hot Oats which my son loves so I will have to become a regular.
I bought coconut this week to make my own macaroons for Passover.
BUT I couldn’t resist my favorite chocolate covered chocolate chip macaroons from the Shop Rite Passover candy counter so I bought a pound.
I guess I can make my own anyway but gosh the macaroons from Shop Rite are just so good that I don’t know that I will bother.
Try freezing your chocolate covered macaroons. Trust me, I know these things.
I also bought this Edy’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie frozen yogurt the other day at my son’s request and after giving him a bowl, I went through and picked out just about every chunk of brownie available in the container.
I would say I am sorry but I am not since it’s something I have always liked to do and it’s my house so I can do what I want.
Ha, I love being the adult because I can say things like this is my house and I bought the food therefore I can and will take any chunks of brownie that I please!
Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday weekend with lots of chocolate and macaroons 🙂Lots of good food talking this Friday! #Passover #macaroons #cookiedough #coffee @lovegrownfoods Click To Tweet
Favorite coffee flavor? Does it get cold fast or am I nuts?
Are you the type to pick the toppings out of the ice creams or do you go for the ice cream part instead?
Are you baking for the holiday weekend? What are you making?
