Lundi: Recipes

It's Spring Break for my kids this week and my husband has a week away from work as well so we are all luxuriating in the wonder of not having any demands on our time.  That is especially welcome since our government continues to force us into a ludicrous and unnecessary time change.  But I digress.

Having the freedom not to show up much of anywhere also means having a choice of morning beverages, if you know what I mean.  With St. Patrick’s Day just on the horizon, I’m thinking of Irish coffee.  Here’s how I throw this oh so easy and delicious concoction together:

8 ounces hot coffee
2 tsps baker’s sugar (granulated is fine, too, or a sugar substitute of your choice)
4 ounces Irish whisky
4 ounces heavy cream

Pour coffee into two 8 ounce cups, add sugar and stir to dissolve.  Add whiskey and stir again.  Pour the cream in slowly over the back of a spoon so that it floats on the top.  Or, if you prefer, a dollop or two of whipped cream is just as good.  Relax and enjoy.

Now, where’s the paper… Bon appetite ~

No kidding. I'm just happy to be "on vacation".
