Ok, so it’s pretty common around here to NOT see me post on food and things like that.
I leave that up to my fabulous sister and her yummy looking food blog –
Once a Mom Always a Cook
However, since we have moved to Wisconsin I have been cooking quite a bit more. Out to eat isn’t as convenient and well, I have found some pleasure in it lately. I actually enjoy it – odd since the main reason I don’t enjoy cooking is because I pretty much loathe cleaning up afterwards, and I DO NOT HAVE A DISHWASHER! I know, I know.. how do I survive? Want to hear to craziest thing? I actually prefer not having a dishwasher. Yup, about a million women just rolled over in their graves.
I think it actually takes me less time to wash a few dishes after each meal and put them away when they are dry than to rinse, load, and unload the dishwasher.
Maybe I have officially lost it? : )
Ok, back on topic.
Have you ever woken up in the morning, completed a task and thought
Wow… I am a living Genius!
It doesn’t happen often, ok… maybe this was the first time — maybe it was because I just really wanted my coffee.
I woke up this morning… like usual the kids already full of energy and I’m just looking to get my morning coffee so I can see straight.
Then this happens….
-aka- The end of the world… at least my morning world!
I HATE coffee grinds but I did not want to dump it out and start all over.
So I’m looking through my kitchen trying to find a way to strain it… uhhh.. DUH!
Use a coffee filter.
So you just put the coffee filter over the top of your cup and fold over the edges
Then pour it in the coffee filter and let it strain into your cup… no more grinds.
Genius… I know! ; )
Now that I am done, there is a good chance most of you are laughing hysterically at me for this completely ridiculous post, what can I say… I NEED my coffee and it made me happy!
What little things make you happy?!
