The heat around here is oppressive. I envy folx who live in more moderate climates. I grew up in the Northwest, and I'm much more comfortable in the rain and the cool.
People around here tell me it helps you cool off to drink something hot. Ha. I don't know what alternative reality they're living in.
In the meantime, I'm having an afternoon espresso, summer cooler style. No, not with coffee ice cubes. That'll come soon though.
Today I just did the easiest thing.
A teaspoon of almond syrup and a large scoop of vanilla ice cream in a cup.
Add coffee. Et voila! Instant summer coffee cooler. Not too fancy but it's all I have time for right now.
The only thing that would make this better would be a larger cup and more ice cream!!
Heh. I guess I'll just have to go back for seconds.
