There's No Place Like Home...

I am currently out of town which really sucks because I miss my guys.  Although, I have to say that it's times like these that help us all to appreciate how great we have it at home.  The family is surviving on leftovers and take out and I am rapidly becoming a regular in the hotel restaurant. 
One more day of hotel food followed by a day of airport food and then I'll be be back at home,
my favorite place in the world.

I woke up this morning with a serious craving for butter.  Real butter, not that fake stuff.  So, as I was slathering butter on my toast and thoroughly enjoying every single bite, I realized that on the subject of butter, I am in complete agreement with Julie Powell when she says,

"Is there anything better than butter? Think it over, any time you taste something that's delicious beyond imagining and you say 'what's in this?' the answer is always going to be butter. The day there is a meteorite rushing toward Earth and we have thirty days to live,
 I am going to spend it eating butter.
Here is my final word on the subject, you can never have too much butter."

What Do You Put in Your Coffee?

If you had asked me this question a week ago, I would have said, "Two Splendas and a spoon of Coffee Mate".  That would tell you the brands I was using but not the ingredients that are going into my coffee.

See where I'm going with this?

Have you ever read the Coffee Mate ingredient label?

Here it is:

The number one ingredient is corn syrup, followed by vegetable oil, sugar, and who-knows-what.

The powdered stuff was fairly new but I threw it out and
replaced it with this:

Milk and cream.

I've also switched to organic coffee and replaced
the Splenda with pure honey.

Good stuff.
