Mc-who? Star-what?

Who wants this?

Or this?

When you can have this!
Right at home!

OK - so my picture isn't as great - but I promise it tastes AWESOME!
We seem to have lost our camera so every picture
I take now is done with my phone.
I can't afford a nifty Nikon like some of you people :)
Give me a break on the pics.

Since I live in Po-dunk Arkansas - and there is not a McDonald's or Starbucks close to me - I decided I wanted to make myself my own homemade coffee drink this morning.

Here is what I did - prepare to have your mind blown.

If you are like me, when you drink coffee it has to be souped up with 10 million spoons of sugar and it probably has more half-n-half than coffee in it.

This morning - I woke up dreading the day - I've been doing that a lot lately. I think it has something to do with hormones, humidity and lack of holiness. Shaun, that alliteration is for you!

I decided that if I was going to get ANYTHING done - I needed coffee. I made a pot - but it's so stinking hot - I didn't want hot coffee. I started lamenting over the fact that there is not a Starbucks down the street from me.

I made my coffee, sugar, half-n-half concoction and decided I'd just try some crushed ice in it - and what did I get?! An awesome cup of milky java that will knock your socks off. Seriously - it tastes just like something you get at Starbucks. Better than the McCafe and if I had whipped cream, it would be just as awesome as Starbucks - minus the bucks spent.

So go make a pot of coffee - add some milky sugar and ice - and have a juiced and accomplished day.

Sounds yummy. Try adding some dry vanilla pudding mix too. I heard about that on Rachel Ray.
