Trying something new

Having seen so many Facebook friends fixing and enjoying Dalgona (whipped) coffee, I'm itching to try it. 

I asked Don Barley (who has WAY more patience with our oh so poorly designed kitchen cupboards than I) if we had any instant coffee.

He looked at me with something close to fear on his face.

"Instant Coffee???"

I nodded yes.

"INSTANT coffee? Why? Why would we ever have that? You mean that horrible stuff in a jar? Like Nescafe!?"

Me: "Well, yeah. Sorta. But not, please god, not Nescafe. But something like it."

Him: "WHY? Did the electric percolator die?!"

Thinking he might keel over I tried to quickly explain whipped coffee. Including video.

Him: "No."

Me: "Well, hell."

He disappeared into the kitchen. I hear banging, rattling, a little cussing.

He reappears to tell me he's found a few things that might work as substitutes for me to play with.

Being the guy who can fix anything and loves the challenge, I couldn't wait to see what he'd come up with.

I didn't know we had some of this stuff, but we'll see what we might be able to do with some of it. I'll let you know.

So.  I tried the Folger's Cafe Latte.  Nope.  



I will try again later.

Stay healthy!
Stay home, if you can!
