Where there is free coffee, you may COUNT ME IN, Madam.
It all started when I found THIS GEM at the WalMarts this weekend:
And also shortly thereafter, when I found THIS ONE, too:
Side note: It just occurred to me that the chocolate one PLAINLY states "Decaffeinated" on the box. Oops.
So first thing this morning, I made myself a hot cup of delicious (and apparently decaf) chocolate coffee. I'd like to think it made me more productive, but then lunch rolled around and then all was lost.
But AFTER lunch, my coworkers and I found out about a new coffee shop that just opened LITERALLY TEN STEPS FROM OUR FRONT DOOR (okay maybe twenty steps!).
The struggle is going to be REAL, peeps.
One of my sweet (and fellow caffeine addicted) co-workers decided to try it out, then later stopped by my desk, worried that she ordered TOO BIG OF A COFFEE*****.
*****Is there such a thing? I say "nay."
She insisted - INSISTED! - on pouring half of it in my cup, and before I knew it, it was GONE AND IN MY BELLY.
I have no idea what happened, really.
Only that I suddenly felt ALIVE.
I come in handy at this place sometimes :)
On another note, today's lunch took place at the Mississippi Museum of Art (they have an in-house cafe) and it was absolutely crazy good. I'm not exactly sorry for the cliche I've become in terms of posting my food everywhere.
Grilled Squash Panini with Blueberry Butter.
Let's just let that sink in a moment, shall we?
As weird as it sounds, it was off the charts good. My mouth is watering again just thinking about it.
Grilled squash, a chunk of mozzarella, lettuce, a fresh tomato, and homemade butter -- all on warm, grilled bread.
You're incredibly welcome.
Eat local, folks!
