226/365 (Lavender coffee)

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Today I made myself a steadfast list. Number one on the list was do the dishes. So, I did them. Number 2 was make coffee. I was getting my french press ready when I wondered what would happen if I put lavender buds in with the grinds. Since I had a small bag of culinary lavender in my cabinet I decided to try it. I just put about a spoonful in with the grinds and mixed it up a little and brewed as normal.

(I used culinary grade lavender from whole foods)

 It is so good, and easy. As much as I would love to have an espresso maker, I don't. I don't even have a microwave to do faux lattes. Just a lil' french press. But adding the lavender made my coffee feel so special. Mmmm. Now I'm just sitting at the kitchen table, enjoying. I have to say, I've been thinking about adding recipes and random 'lifestyle' things to this blog. I want to keep it really personal, but also I spend roughly 50% of my time cooking, making coffee, decorating the apartment. My life is not so eloquent as this blog might make it seem. I am really pretty normal. I also spend a lot of time debating about it in my head. Like, if I add a recipe for lavender coffee, is that making all the other stuff on here less important? One of my new favorite blogs elephantine does a really good job of mixing photos, personal posts, and recipes all into one blog. Definitely a blog role-model, right there.

  1. I love the coffee cup photograph. I am wondering if this happens to everyone, or it is only if my old eyes are going bad: As I looked at it, admiring the fabulously subtle differences of the shades of the floor, table and coffee, the spoon and cup would go in and out of focus. Is it just me or is there an optical illusion? Perhaps is because the tip of the end of the spoon (beautiful spoon!) is so close to the out-of-focus table edge? Or could it be that my eyes are tired from driving 100 miles today?
