This was part of my Secret Santa that I am way behind on actually finishing. But this was for a pal I met a few years ago for her Christmas gift, picturing the two of us (self-portrait!) poking around in the mysterious bowels of the Internet late at night. I originally was going to go the “ancient alien/mysteries” route and depict some artifacts, but I wasn’t able to settle on a museum design I liked.
Hopefully this comes a close second. More serene than mysterious, but I was pretty happy with it.
So I tried to make my own frappe thing based from ingredients in the store. I have caramel syrup in the coffee, then topped it off with whipped creamed and caramel drizzle. It didn’t taste too bad, but I found that the caramel syrup didn’t taste at all like the caramel in the drizzle, and the whipped cream did leave a bit of a miss. Overall not a bad concoction.
This was a nice piece I got to do for u/thorbeck15, with him and his girlfriend in their living room for Valentines. They absolutely loved it and it was fun to work on as well! Before I started on this, I had no idea what Spot-it was; sue homeschool life for me.
When I set my coffee down this evening, the lid looked like some happy face that was wanting something from me. So for you guy’s amusement, I snapped a photo to share my new friend with you.
When crunch comes to shove and I need something to hit the spot, egg drop soup and gas station coffee from Weigels will get me back on track. I’ve not perfected how to make restaurant-grade stuff as yet, so buying it from China Buffet will have to suffice. And while I do have my own coffee at home, I get a big cup for $1 and get to dump hazelnut cream and whatnot in it.
Breakfast in Queens is always simple. It’s quite a different change when you’re on the road scrounging McDonalds biscuit and eggs; sometimes my aunt does give something more Guyanese when we arrive, but often breakfast is very simple, composing of bread and cereal.
This was the case here, especially since we were trying to get back home in time for July 4th. Breakfast was very simple; regular bran flakes, milk and coffee. Honestly, I actually enjoyed this before heading out, especially considering this was eaten at 7:30AM. Though I got hungry pretty quickly afterwards.
Another good and quick breakfast one easygoing morning. Raspberry yogurt, cherry toaster strudel (Pillsbury), fresh blueberries and strawberries, along with coffee.
While traveling with my Dad back home to Tennessee, we stopped in at a Waffle House near Lake Park, Georgia I think. I got some eggs and hash with mushrooms and cheese, along with their trademark coffee. It was quite enjoyable, and not bad for a first meal there (yes, that’s the first time I ate there!)
This was a pretty spiffy meal, working out great for a cold December morning back when I was home at ETSU. Cream of mushroom soup, fried red kidney beans, coffee and toast. With the stuff I’m eating while at school, this was a welcome change.
