It's A Coffee Kind of Day

Monday and the living is sluggish!

 I have been indulging in goodies since last week and today I am paying the price. I feel sluggish, water logged and dense.
A nice strong cup of coffee  is helping get me back to my senses!

For me, though, coffee means a cup of  creamer with a bit of coffee in it.  It is the flavor of the creamer that I like.    I don't use the flavored kind with sugar, just plain but it has a creamy nice taste to it that I like.  I really do not like coffee with plain milk or cream.

 I like Dunkin Donuts ground coffee or Eight O'Clock coffee which was a staple at  the A & P when I was a child. 
I still love to shop at the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, though the only one is a few miles away on the island. 

I found this recipe HERE.   It sounds nice for those who like sweet creamer and she invented it herself.. how clever is she?

14 oz can condensed milk (sweetened kind)
 28 oz regular milk ( she fills the condensed milk can twice)
1 or 1 1/2  Tablespoon of vanilla
Mix, stir, refrigerate
makes 24 servings.


  1. Happy autumn, Annie! :)
    For me it's always a coffee kind of day ;) but no milk in mine, just a bit of sugar.
    Zeno would like your kind, tho'.
    Enjoy your evening, hug!

  2. Hi Annie;
    As you know with me it's always a coffee kind of day. I grew up shopping in the A&P with my family in the Bronx and the only coffee we used was Eight-O-Clock coffee. Today with no A&P anywhere in upstate NY, I too now buy Dunkin' Donuts coffee. I buy it straight from the DD shops as you get a whole pound which you can't get in the supermarkets. I do use a little fat free milk and no sugar in my coffee. If it isn't available I drink it black. :) Have a great day ahead my friend. Hugs

  3. Hi Annie, I am a coffee and tea drinker. I usually have 1 1/2 cups in the morning with flavored coffee creamer. I love the almond joy flavor and cinnamon vanilla. I have decaf tea in the evening. I have been enjoying Bengal Spice from Celestial Seasonings. Sometimes I put raisins in my tea, I let them soak up the tea and then I eat the plump raisins with a baby spoon. It is a little indulgence I enjoy on cold nights. :) Hugs

  4. Hi Annie! I'm a coffee drinker as well. I like my coffee with flavored creamer, I'm a sucker for caramel moch. :) All of our A&P supermarkets have been closed down for a few years now. It's where my parents used to shop as well. Hope you have a great Tuesday and are staying warm. It's a bit chilly this morning. Hugs!

  5. Hi Annie,
    Growing up we had an A&P in Culver City I use to go to as a kid. They are all gone in So Cal now. I drink i cup of coffee on Saturday and Sunday at the Hospital they have the best tasting coffee!! I use a lot of non dairy creamer in mine and 2 splendas. I do occasionally go to to Starbucks for a Venti Non Fat Cappuccino :) Hope you are having a great Tuesday. Hugs, Dru

  6. Hi Annie! Coming by to wish you a good Friday and a lovely weekend! Hugs


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
