Froth it!

Say hello to my little friend.

Don't know what this little gizmo is?
Well, let me tell you something...

I am addicted to Caribou Coffee's Pom/Vanilla Tea Latte.
I can not afford a daily hit dose for my addiction.
I asked a fancy-schmancy kitchen gadgets store if they had anything to make latte's frothy, like we get at Caribou or Starbucks. Oh, yes they did have what I was looking for and it had a steep price on it too. I think from the look on my face the guy understood there wouldn't be a sale. So he helped a poor girl out and told me to look at Ikea. And there, he told me, I would find something very similar and for a whole lot less money. I was stunned that he gave me such insight. Usually clerks of this store's nature would have look down there nose at me and said "SOR-REY this is all we have." All the while checking me out from top to toe thinking "I should have known by her cheap dime store flip flops she couldn't afford a reusable bag from us let alone a top of the line frotherererer."
Nope not this guy, so I looked him in the eye and said "Thank you so much for that tip."
He smiled at me and added "Enjoy your lattes!"

Oh yeh! Uh huh! Get-down-girl; go-head-get-down! {those were the lyrics to my happy dance.}

This is my cup, with a regular ole vanilla tea bag in it.

These our my "tools".  Brewed tea, coconut coffeemate and my ikea $1.99 frother.
YEH! I said $1.99 frother!
A perfect vanilla coconut latte! Do ya see what the froth made in my cup? A bunny.
Oh yeh, I froth it like it's hot!
I think I may have a new talent. Maybe I should put my resume in a Caribou.

{Note: I frothed in a separate cup, I learned the hard way, very bad things happen when you don't!}


  1. Wow, that's cool. Of course we don't have an Ikea within 5 miles of us, so looks like I won't be doing that any time soon.

  2. And just when I think you can't get better. HONESTLY Woman, you slay me. And I can't fricken wait to get back to Ikea with you! YOU rock the party!

    Blessings, C~


I love hearing from you!
