I know it’s not Foodie Friday, but it is WAKE-UP WEDNESDAY, so I thought I’d share my new daily ritual with you step by step. Here’s how I make my THIN RICH & BOOZIE iced cappuccino.
Espresso ~ 3 Splenda packets ~ skim milk ~ 2 french vanilla coffeemate pods ~ tall glass ~ Ice
- Make a double espresso shot
- Add 2 Splenda and 1 coffeemate
- Poor over glass of ice (I prefer ice pellets)
- Top off glass with cold skim milk
Foam: The secret to my foam is one Splenda and a coffeemate added to my skim milk
- Add 1 Splenda, 1 Coffeemate, & Skim milk to separate cup
- Froth milk blend
- Spoon on a dollop of foam and add a straw
I hate New York City traffic, I’m sure as all you New Yorkers out there do as well. Bridge and Tunnel traffic is especially dreadful during rush hour. Being that I have the Vespa, I generally fly past all the traffic and cut the line close to the entrance. Yesterday was no exception, I attempted to go my normal way via the West Side Highway to Canal Street entrance, however the traffic cop directed me to go up to Spring Street to Verick where I decided to do a little move I like to call crosswalk merge… where I use the crosswalk to turn into the blocked traffic… Unfortunately for me yesterday there happen to be a police officer in his car on the other side. When I had almost gotten away with my normal TR&B move, the police officer yelled at me to stop. Where I could have pretended my helmet deterred my hearing him… I actually turned and looked. Let’s just say a few minutes later I was zooming away with a little yellow piece of paper.
More birthday celebrations. On Monday night I met a few of my closest friends for a fairly impromptu birthday dinner at HILL COUNTRY BBQ. It was an affair to celebrate one of my all time favorite events… MY BIRTH. On Sunday I celebrated 32 years of being fabulous. I have to admit I love my birthday, but I don’t love the fact that I’m aging. As you either know, or will eventually find out… things change when you get older, it’s much easier to put on weight and harder to take it off. A good thing about age, is that time teaches you things. You know more; like that you should not take out a second mortgage to buy that fabulous Prada bag… You realize that you buy it when you can afford it, ask for it as a gift, or just go without. I’ve found that even my drinking habits change. I still drink plenty, but now I can afford to buy myself a drink, unlike my 20’s when my friends and I could hardly afford Chinese take out for dinner. We would show up to the club with a $5 cover and open bar before midnight… we would gorge ourselves on vodka (the cheap kind) cranberries before the open bar closed and then dance the night away.
I’ve never been one to shy away from throwing myself a birthday party. Here’s a walk down Memory lane on some pics of past birthday parties.
