Reboot. Recharge.

When all else fails, just shut it down for 5 seconds and turn it back on. Just like new!

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, I’m a foodie. Love everything about it. From reading my million cooking mags each month to walking the aisles of the supermarket, to convincing myself that yes, I DO need another gadget, I’m a foodie.
Having said that, I had an interesting conversation yesterday with a fellow food-minded person.
“I have a confession” he said
“Oh yeah, what’s that” I said
“We had Taco Bell for dinner on Sunday night” he said
Interesting confession.
Made me start to think about my own food secret, the one that I hide, trying not to reveal to anyone……


At work, I use Coffee Mate flavored coffee creamers…
Whew, there, I said it. I’m revealing my most heinous of food crimes. And yes, I think that using Coffee Mate flavored coffee creamer is a food crime.
My reason for using it is because the coffee at work is really bad. I mean, MUD bad.
So, on those mornings when I can’t get my sorry ass to Starbucks and I have to succumb to the crap that is the coffee at work, I flavor it with some French Vanilla and Hazelnut to make it a bit more palette-able.
Wow, I can’t believe how much better I feel.

I recently strayed from the French Vanilla and Hazelnut to try Vanilla Caramel.
IT’S GROSS. Everything about it is gross. Plus it STINKS, I mean it Smells, BAD. No good.

There are actually a bunch of Coffee-Mate flavors, that if you ask me, sound not right, where coffee is concerned: Coconut Crème?, Vanilla-Chai Spice (isn’t that a tea??), Crème Brulee? What will they think of next?
(Don't answer, rhetorical question).

I also once tried one of their "Coffee-Mate Latte Creations", Vanilla, to be exact. I quickly realized that I really should not be using it. It was like a chemistry experiment, right before my eyes. You pour it in, stir, and a thin layer of foamy, froth starts to form.
No thanks.

So, I feel much better having confessed my coffee crime.
Please don’t hold it against me….
