A cheesecake fantasy coffee, is that even a thing? Cold Stone Creamery says yes, and I say that I just ran a pod of it through my Keurig. The smell of it reminds me of the chocolate-covered maraschino cherries that can be found in stores around Christmas. It’s sweet and fruity with undertones of something that I’m struggling to name. Possibly vanilla. The taste is surprisingly bitter. Not unpleasant, it’s a smooth bitterness. The flavour comes in the aftertaste. A lingering hint of cherry that’s both earthy and burnt. Overall, it is an interesting cup of coffee.
If we were having coffee, start by sharing my picture contribution to the Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC). The PPAC is a fun addition to our beloved Weekend Coffee Share. The colourful truck is part of the decorative scenery at The Vibrant Vine Winery in Kelowna, Bristish Columbia. This winery boasts wine, art, and sound. If you click the link, I have set it up to take you to their art gallery images – Beautiful Colours.
If we were having coffee, I would explain that I don’t have a lot to report this week. It was a status quo kind of week.
If we were having coffee, I would share that my boys and I have a Harry Potter movie marathon planned for the weekend. They really haven’t been interested in the books or movies, but when I suggested a late-night marathon with treats, they were all over it. So, we start tonight and hope to finish Saturday. Sunday we are going to start dragging the Christmas decorations out.
Here is the coffee pot. How was your week?
