Cait didn't really feel like blogging today, so I (Jeff) offered to take over for the day and write my very first blog post! Writing was never really my strong point in school and considering I have the writing skills of an 8th grader you will just have to bare with me. I chose to make a caramel frappe, something that I mastered making this past summer. It is usually only a summer drink for me, but I only know how to make about 4 things that is blog material and this one was the best! I was inspired to make this drink after the $3 caramel frappe at McDonland's became too pricey and I realized that making it myself was both cheaper and more convenient (especially after acquiring our new magic bullet)! Here is the finished product:
- 1/2 cup coffee (chilled)
- 2 cups of ice
- 1/2 cup milk or cream
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 3 tablespoons of caramel syrup
I bought the muffins in the background at the store. I clearly don't have the baking skills to make chocolate chip muffins of that quality! Sorry I did not take pictures of the step by step process, I just figured it was unnecessary. However, after making the frappe, Cait insisted that I needed more pictures so she made me put on this ridiculous apron and pose for one last picture. As you can see, I would do almost anything for this woman.
I was forced to wear the apron, but the gloves are standard when I do the dishes. That's about it for my first post, maybe I will be back again when Cait needs another break!
