Today we’ve got our first taste of what is to come for winter… yuck. As much as I love eating winter food (curries, soups, stews), wearing tracksuit pants and slippers, and curling up under my doona with the electric blanket on – I HATE THE COLD. It’s so depressing and it makes me want to jump on the first plane to Sunset Cove.
|Sunset Cove - sunset by the pool = absolute bliss|
So instead of walking 10mins to get a really good coffee, I opted to stay more local (100m) and go to the café I used to frequent daily (that was until the 2 great barista’s left, the prices went up, and the new staff were rude to me not once, or twice – but three times!!)
So I walked in, and ordered a regular size soy cappuccino (take note). The barista (I use this term lightly) didn’t even look at me, instead checked his phone, grabbed a jug – at this point, I got distracted by the gorgeous black dog sitting outside (cuuuuuuuute!).
Long story short – the d-bag had made me a large full-fat dairy milk latte!!!!!!!!
The thing that gave it away initially was the lack of chocolate powder on top – I MUST have this powder, it’s divine. Then I noticed the cup was larger than regular. Then I noticed the open bottle of dairy milk. And he gave me the wrong change. I’m no Einstein but I put 2+2 together.
Needless to say, I was reminded why I decided to go elsewhere for coffee.
This weekend I plan on baking. I’ve decided to attempt baking my own hot x buns (having worked at Baker's Delight in ye olde days, I am scarred for life and cannot bring myself to buy them from there). I’ve found a few recipes that look good and fairly simple, so I shall give it a go. I am also dying to make Vegie Head’s Swiss chard and potato curry – although it depends on whether I can get my hands on some chard. I’m excited to be taking Z-monster to the zoo next week (am taking a day off) so I might bake a few treats for us to share.
It has been am emotionally draining week for me, so I’m planning on some down time over the weekend. I hope whatever you have planned for the weekend is great; and don’t forget it’s only a couple of weeks til the Easter long weekend!
