Iced Coffee & The End is Near

Sorry I was absent from the blogosphere last week - I was a bit busy losing my mind. We are now five weeks from my husband graduating and I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.  I have tons of ideas for this blog and even a few giveaways coming up but please hang on as the next few weeks may remain light on posting.  Our family is looking forward to life settling down just a tiny bit once my husband graduates.  This has been the hardest semester yet and we are all thankful it is the last.

In the meantime, I thought I would share with you my latest indulgence - iced coffee.  I never liked iced coffee before but something changed when I was pregnant with my youngest.  I would occasionally crave it and still do. I love a morning cup or two of coffee but many days do not have time to finish it (I make half caff by the way).  I've started putting the leftover coffee in my refrigerator for an afternoon treat.  Here is my "recipe":

leftover coffee
flavored creamer
dash of Splenda

I add a bit of flavored creamer to the leftover coffee and then top off with soy milk until it is light brown.  I finish it off with about 1/3 packet of Splenda and then pour the coffee over ice.  

Tastes like it came from a coffeehouse but at a fraction of the price and I don't even have to leave my house to get it.
