Mail makes me smile!
I got a package in the mail today that I was not expecting! It was from Julia and was suppose to be just a check for a necklace and a pair of earrings!!!! It was much bigger than what a check would come in!!! Upon opening it I was surprised to find that besides sending a check she also sent a bunch of fabulous things to make me smile!!!!
Some adorable Michael Miller retro fabric and some AWESOME cook booklets! I have to say I am very excited about the 'FUN with Coffee' one! I tried to make a coffee cake a number of months ago. Not a cake to eat with coffee but a cake made out of coffee. I made a chocolate cake as the base and added lots of packets of cappuccino coffee mix to that. I thought it would turn out like a chocolate coffee flavor...No, just the chocolate came through. I honestly don't like coffee in it's typical hot form (but i like it in ice coffee and ice cream) but am intrigued with the idea of using it for cooking. Of course, a smart gal would have looked up a recipe online...But I didn't, I was trying to come up with something myself. I don't mind getting some help from vintage sources though.
on the last page of the 'FUN with Coffee" booklet it says:
...And there's still MORE fun with coffee...
* A fine reward for a good boy or girl is Coffee Junior- a big glass of milk turned into a prize by addition of a few tablespoons of hot coffee. Remember when you enjoyed Coffee Junior on Sunday mornings long ago?
I don't recall ever having this...Does anyone else??
Thank you so much Julia! I know you are out of the country right now so that will give me some time to get your package together!
