Guess what? I didn’t go to Starbucks this morning. I know. Crazy, right? I feel like I’m cheating. Especially since I put it in my re-useable Starbucks cup…
So where did I get this magic iced coffee, if not at Starbucks? I’ve talked many a time about how much I worship the Pioneer Woman. On Sunday night the Hubbster and I made a batch of her Perfect Iced Coffee. If you are too lazy to make a pot of coffee every morning and want to save money, this is basically gold. I tweaked the PW’s recipe a bit. Hers makes 8 quarts, I only make 6 quarts. Trust me. It’s enough. Here’s what you’ll need:
These 6 quarts will last the Hubbster and I at least a week. I like to intersperse this into my Starbucks routine during the warmer months to save some money. I say the warmer months, because I don’t really like hot coffee. I just like iced coffee. I’m weird.
Speaking of the warmer months, the pool in our apartment complex was filled yesterday. Upon seeing it all pretty and full of water, I turned into an excited 5-year-old–and one step short of a rabid dog. If they open it up early (i.e. before Memorial Day Weekend) I think I will pee myself with joy. They also got new grills, so you are all invited over for a pool party. I’ll grab some hot dogs and fill a watermelon with vodka immediately. See you all this weekend!
