There’s nothing like a mug of foamy coffee with a side of goldfish! (I think he’s hoping that being on my blog will bring him fame and fortune. Not likely!)
I’m actually not much of a coffee drinker – I prefer tea. In fact I never really drank it until a holiday in Rome in the spring. Now I’m developing a taste for it!
I still don’t care for instant coffee and I definitely don’t care for coffee shop prices! Until the kitchen fairy brings me a coffee maker, I’m going to enjoy my version of the latte.
Serves 1. Preparation time 5 minutes. Approx 120 calories.
Three-quarters of a cup of milk
One teaspoon of instant coffee granules
One teaspoon of brown sugar
One teaspoon of vanilla extract
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Boil some water and pour just enough into a mug with the instant coffee to dissolve the coffee – less than a quarter of a cup.
Put the milk in a saucepan and bring to the boil while whisking. Reduce heat and whisk in the coffee, sugar and vanilla.
Take off the heat, pour into a mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Do you like my mug? Points to anyone who recognises the quote!
Are you a coffee drinker? Do you visit coffee shops or make it at home?
Something to Chew Over – everyday food, just a little bit special!
