latte and espresso

One of my many favourite snacks will always be chocolate covered espresso beans and a latte. There is something so tantalizing about chocolate and coffee, coffee and chocolate, especially on a miserable rainy day such as today. Of course there is always room for improvement in a latte and so today’s latte was delicious.

2 T fresh coffee grounds
1/8 t cinnamon
1/8 t nutmeg
375 mL water
1/2 C steamed milk with foam

Coffee grounds and spices should be added to coffee filter to brew together. Add milk to your preference.

I will say though that I did not eat all those espresso beans myself. There was a houseful of siblings to help me.

A massacre of horrible sorts

Tourning a potatoe is a more complicated procedure than most. To tourn involves carving a vegtable into a seven equal sided football shapped mass. Such a procedure demands a whole heck of a lot of practice and so the butchering of 10 pounds in potatoes. I can’t say we accomplished a whole lot, nothing emerged from the dead or living shaped as a football. Though I must say I never realized how inexpensive potatoes really are. I should also say that potatoes do not burn well al forno.
