Iced Godiva Coffee

Seasonal Godiva Coffee? Ummmm….. yes please!

I received two packages of the Seasonal Godiva Coffee as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program yesterday and couldn’t wait to dig in. Actually, Derek couldn’t wait to dig in. When he saw the package he looked up at me and asked “mine?” Yes, honey – all yours. :)

He made a pot of the Carmel Pecan Bark flavor this morning before heading to work.

He drank it hot and I poured it on ice with soy milk for a midmorning treat.

I loved the way the aroma of the fresh coffee filled the entire apartment. I’m not a regular coffee drinker and Derek always has his coffee at work, so we rarely make it in the house. This morning was a nice, welcomed treat.

The flavor was very rich and dark on it’s own, but the vanilla soy milk took the edge off and sweetened it up a bit while complementing the carmel flavoring. This was my first time turning a flavored coffee into an iced coffee and – strange – but I almost think I’d prefer plain iced coffee. And is it just me or is iced coffee made at home not as good as the stuff at little coffee shops? Or maybe i just need to find the right brand?

Derek wasn’t a huge fan of the coffee, but I think that has more to do with the fact that we were out of regular milk and he had to use the soy milk in his. I agree with him – there is a difference with soy milk and regular milk in coffee. I just happen to prefer soy milk and he does not.

The pumpkin spice flavor is being put away until Thanksgiving. It looks like Thanksgiving, it smells like Thanksgiving, and I think it will be the perfect Thanksgiving morning treat come turkey day. :)

Last night’s left over Mexican Chili made the perfect lunch today.

I layered cornbread, spinach, and cheese then poured the chili on top. It was like a hot open faced chili sandwich of sorts.

I was also quite tasty. :)

Any big weekend plans?

I just have two words for this weekend GO NOLES ;)

The Final Brick

September 16, 2011

This morning I pushed through my final brick before Augusta. 20 miles on the bike. 6 miles on foot. Throw in a swim and I would have been THIS close to an olympic distance triathlon. I wanted to get at least one brick in with a decent run before d-day. I had my bike at more ยป
