I have a problem

Well, I have several problems.

I can't find my dang camera which makes me say bad words!! I've gone through all the boxes and crap lying around...nothing!! Of all things, my camera :(

My other problem is I AM addicted to ice coffee! It's the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing when I go to bed. This week Lyssa and I experimented on making the perfect ice coffee. We succeeded!! I would have taken pictures, but well you know. First, we researched and got lots of good ideas but this is what we did...

We found a BIG bag of coffee at Sam's. In a big plastic container we put 1 quart of coffee and added five quarts of water. Then we put the lid on it and let it sit for 8 hours. After it looked good and dark brown we ran it through a strainer and cheese cloth into another plastic container. We squeezed the cheese cloth to get every last drop of coffee. Then we put it into another plastic container with a spout so we could have easy access to our coffee at any point during the day.

Now, here comes the good part. Get a big ol' glass and fill it to the top with ice then fill it with half coffee and the rest with half and half. Sometimes we add a little french vanilla creamer and agave nectar. It is the perfect ice coffee. We haven't tried this yet but we ran across a recipe that added a tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk along with the half and half....delish. It said the coffee would last for a month in the fridge.
Try it right away!
I'll keep looking for my camera...
