National Coffee Day!

Who knew? 

It's National Coffee Day. How have YOU spent this magical day? 

Krispy Kreme is giving away a free Cup of Coffee today with no purchase necessary! It's actually very strategic of them. 

Any sane person would drive up to get a FREE cup of coffee, see the HOT donut sign and buy one twelve hot, gooey donuts. Cheers to Krispy Kreme and their strategic marketing.

In lieu of National Coffee Day (and every day the weather has reached over 75 degrees this summer), I made a cup of iced coffee. Which is also free. If you make it yourself. With your own ingredients.

Iced Coffee
1 6oz cup of coffee, chilled
1/3 cup skim milk
2 TBSP of your favorite creamer
5 ice cubes

Mix all ingredients, insert straw (not shown), to keep your teeth from getting stained as you drink. Trust me, this is a real thing.

I bought this nifty glass carafe from Home Goods for $3.99 and it holds 8 cups of coffee. Each week I brew 8 cups, throw it in the fridge, and its a cinch to make iced coffee every morning.

And right now I'm "lurv-ing" Coffee Mate's Brown Sugar Maple Latte flavored creamer. Mmmm, its like maple syrup in your coffee. Me and Will Ferrell in the movie Elf would get along nicely. Because of his love for maple syrup. And his love for singing. And Christmas.

Happy National Coffee Day!
