Turn coffee mugs into a gift basket

There are times when I would stand at my cabinet trying to choose which coffee mug to drink out of. Do you have that same problem? I do see myself drinking out of these. Whether it's coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Do you?

You can also use these a gift basket.  How? Well, you can put the individual instant coffee packets, sugar packets, stirrer, individual creamers all wrapped in cellophane with a ribbon and/or bow. Doesn't that sound nice? They would really appreciate it.

Hope this was helpful. Enjoy.and thank you.

Sip in style with this matching set of beautiful mugs! Whether it’s your morning coffee or evening tea, you’ll enjoy it more when you drink it from one of these beautiful 12-ounce ceramic mugs decorated with red designer flourishes

More than coffee

I also enjoy other appliances, like the Hamilton Beach food processor. It was a gift. So after sitting on the shelf for a while, I decided to use it to make a salad. I shredded some carrots, sliced some tomatoes, peppers, lettuce. OMG was it good. I made a dressing, mayo and vinegar. It was awesome.

I also used it to chop up some frozen meatballs to make empanadas. I microwaved them to get them soft then I put them in the processor along with some leftover vegetables. Afterwards put the mixture in the empanada with cheese on top, folded it, fried it. Everyone loved it. Maybe coffee beans are next.

This is the processor. What would you use it for?

Happy now

Okay remember me telling you about my coffee maker, it was a gift. At that time I couldn't make coffee because I needed coffee filters. The machine I have use #4 filters. #4 Coffee filters

So when I finally able to get my filter I was happy because I was going to get the chance to program it for the first time!!!! Yes, simple things like that makes me happy.

My husband had bought me a bag of New England Coffee, hazelnut and hazelnut creamer.

Now I had everything to make the perfect cup of coffee. :-)

My Coffee Coupons

I am ready to buy some coffee. Which flavor and brand do you prefer?

I like french vanilla, light and sweet. Dunkin 
Donuts does it for me. I've tried hazelnut...not too bad. 
I didn't care for blueberry.
