I enjoy coffee (and tea!). I especially enjoy flavored lattes (my favorites are caramel, and Starbucks' maple macchiato, which is sadly only available during the winter holiday season). However, I usually do not indulge in fancy coffee as it is more expensive and less healthy. When I do partake, it tends to be a special treat. Today, I had a plain latte with skim milk at a local coffee shop. The occasion? The first official NaNoWriMo 2007 write-in, of course! And I have to say, this was the prettiest latte I have seen in quite some time. It wasn't all that tasty (I've never tried the non-flavored variety and was curious), but it sure looked nice and packed a strong caffeine-laden punch that I continued to feel long afterward. I'm still not sure if that's a good thing.

  1. Coffee is truly one of my delights. I'm sure that I drink much more than I should. We live in a rural part of the state and the closest Starbucks is an hour away, and considering my affection for coffee, that is probably a good thing. My Starbucks favorite is the caramel macchiato. I haven't tried the maple. You asked about what kind of muffins I made Sunday morning - banana chocolate chip. When the boy were still living at home, I baked a batch every Friday morning. Emily just appreciates them once a month or so. I substitute withe mint chocolate chips in the season they are available and everyone loves them.Have a great day, Beth.
