Continuing on to my perfect quest for overnight iced coffee in my French press…
Yesterday I gave Pioneer Woman’s perfect iced coffee a look. Her recipe makes it in bulk, so I did need to adjust for my french press – luckily a reader comment told me how to do that: 3 cups of water to 2/3 cup grounds. This recipe makes a concentrate that you can keep in the fridge, which is totally appealing. I like my iced coffee black, so since I’m not adding milk (or condensed milk!?) I was a little worried about adding water itself to the concentrate.
And here’s the problem: I LIKED THE CONCENTRATE!
Strong, black! I ended up doing about 2/3 concentrate and 1/3 water, which tasted fine. But the problem is that I can’t afford to like the concentrate!! It is pretty strong, so maybe for the long term I will get used to a closer to 50/50 dilution.
Side dish to the coffee..
Bowl of cereal! A mix of mini wheats, mini wheat sludge, GH Groovy Granola, chia, half a banana and milk. Oh and sunflower butter!
I slept fabulously last night. I have temporarily banished the snoogle body pillow from my bed and am trying other combinations of pillows – and my abs feel much better! I don’t think I woke up once, except when I was having a scary dream early this AM. Matt heard me wimper something and said “Are you ok!?” I then had about 3 more vivid dreams before I finally woke up. One on a train! One involved a wedding and lots of rain….
Our high today is 103* BUT next week there area a bunch of 80* days scheduled – including one high of 79*! I don’t even know what that will feel like!
