And we have been doing a lot of lounging on the couch in the morning. Feels so good to be out of the house at a civilized hour.
The lazy schedule also has given me some time to bake in the morning before it gets warm. We’re gluten free here and LOVING this whipped cream cake. Actually, her flour blend is an awesome substitute in any recipe that requires flour. I highly suggest you check it out. And what could be better with whip cream cake than a few hundred more calories?
Apparently I’m not the only one out there loving ice coffee. Michelle Sews left a comment with a link for cold brewed coffee, which triggered buried memories of making what I call Toddy. Toddy is essentially a coffee concentrate that is cold brewed and lasts in the fridge for 14 days. Once made simply add 4 oz. water to 2 oz. toddy. The result is a low acidic delicious cup of coffee. I’ll admit I enjoy it cold because I like my hot beverages to be steaming hot. Follow the link to make your own.
We actually have a Toddy Maker that we received as a gift, so I dug it out. You need course ground coffee which you soak for 12 hours.
I pour some hot water over some sweet and condensed milk so it ‘melts’ and then pour it, the toddy and some milk over a full cup of ice. Now that you have a load of energy you can go for a run to burn it off.
Happy Weekend, I’m going to go lay on the couch.
