I’m having some weird-o coffee cravings today. For once, I’m not craving coffee for its caffeine; I’m craving it for its tasteEven though I drank a glass of iced coffee with breakfast, I craved coffee for my entire commute to work. When I finally had my second cup, it tasted so good when it hit my lips! :mrgreen:

Today’s lunch was leftovers from last night’s dinner: French bread pizza with prosciutto and mozzarella and sweet potato “chips.” 

For dessert, I enjoyed a caramel-filled chocolate egg, which had been stored in the office refrigerator all morning. The caramel was cool, sweet, and chewy! 😀

With watermelon chunks…

I am blogging from the Cafe Gato Rojo, where there are strong aromas of espresso and freshly brewed coffee, which again made me crave a hot cup. While “working,” I am sipping on a soy cappuccino with cinnamon and cocoa sprinkled on top. It is totally satisfying my craving! 😀

Bonus Question of the Day

Are you a coffee drinker? If so, what’s your favorite way to drink it?



  1. Those sweet potato “chips” look great! Definitely have to try that some time. I’m also an avid coffee drinker – Starbucks Lattes, DD French Vanilla, and Caribou Coffee that I make in my Keurig each morning (best machine ever!!!).

  2. I used to be an every once in a while coffee drinker, but now it’s everyday, usually in the car on the way to work. For me it’s more about the taste than the caffeine and I like to drink it with flavored creamer and stevia.

  3. Oh my gosh, as a coffee lover, that last cup looks PHENOMENAL! Yummy 🙂

    Frozen candy gets the thumbs up as well! Frozen snickers in particular are incredible!

  4. That lunch looks so good! I kicked the coffee habit during lent, but with finals around the corner who knows…

  5. iced with a splash of milk and a splash of sugar free vanilla syrup. I pay $2.91 for it at a local shop, but now that the season is back for some iced goodness I am going to start making it myself again!

    and btw, i HATE hot coffee.

  6. I started drinking coffee when I was 14. I’ve stopped and re-started a bunch of times because I feel like I function better without caffeine. But I’ll still have a cup (or 2) when I need a boost every once in a while 🙂

  7. If you have ever read my blog you will often see me mention my morning coffeeeeeeeeeee and my insane Starbucks addiction. 🙂 Coffee at home is made with brown sugar and skim milk (or sometime soy or almond milk or whatever’s handy). Coffee at a restaurant I enjoy with real cream as a treat. At SB it’s almost always a double tall non-fat vanilla latte but I have been known to change it up once in a while.

  8. Every one of these pictures is major food porn! haha! That caramel egg and cappuccino drink look especially delicious! 🙂 I am more of a earl grey + soy milk and agave nectar type of girl….but when I get coffee I also like it with soy milk & some stevia usually!

  9. I hear ya on the coffee! As the weather gets warmer, my cravings go out of control and I NEED iced lattes! Good thing we bought a super automatic espresso machine last year or I would go broke at Starbucks!
