Spiced Coconut Coffee





Since I LOVE warm drinks on a cold day (and boy has it been cold lately) I will resume making warm drinks. Warm drinks all around! Maybe I can finally take off one of my layers off (seriously, I am wearing 4 layers right now and I am still cold)

So what drink can I drink in the morning. A morning drink that is warm... Think Cathleen, think.

Obviously the drink that comes to mind is coffee.

Now during the school year, coffee is my drug. And Starbucks is my dealer. They even knew me there,they knew what I wanted, and they sometimes even gave me a free drink. Actually a girl beside me wanted to buy me a drink because she thought I was Miley Cyrus. Way off the mark, so I obviously didn't accept.

Now since I was way lazy to think up some coffee drink by myself, I was browsing around recipes (one of my favorite pastimes) and I found a strange coffee made from the feces of the Asian Palm Civit. One of the most expensive coffees in the world.

I don't know about you, but I'll stick to the coffee I know.

  5. As if Miley Cyrus can't afford her own coffee. Sheesh, I don't get the star struck. Pay it forward people to somebody who could actually use your generosity. Ok, now that I have that out of my system, I'm going to go make coffee.
