Mr. Incredible's Window Sill Onions

I have to take a minute and brag about my cool husband, Mr. Incredible. He will be the first to tell you that his brain is a storage unit of useless random information. I think he's definitely correct that his head is a receptacle of random and unique info, but it's far from useless!

About a week or so ago, we bought some scallions (green onions) at Ingles. We chopped them up and used them in a recipe and I never gave them another thought.

A few days later, I noticed that Mr. Incredible had set a little bowl in my kitchen window sill. In the bowl was a little bit of water and the white pieces from the scallions.

 ME: Hmmm... that's interesting. But, it's little and not messy, so I don't really mind.

I went back to whatever it was that I was doing. A few days later I looked at it again and there were green shoots popping up. And a couple days later, they were longer and growing like crazy!

ME: Mr. Incredible, you know your little thingies in the window sill are growing?!

That is when he told me about his project. "My grandmother was always able to take something, put it in water, and watch it root and grow. I've always wanted to try that. We may not have to buy green onions too often - dependent on how these do."



I just thought this was cool, have a great week!

We Tried Decaf: Five Cups Coffee!

This post contains affiliate links. We are not decaf drinkers here.
In fact, the last time I bought decaf coffee was years ago. And it wasn't for me. We had company over and we were trying to be considerate. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure decaf is super. But, can someone explain the goodness to me? I mean, sure. Coffee is coffee. And with enough cream and sugar, I suppose I could drink anything. (I don't really mean that!) But really.

Then, along came Five Cups Coffee.  It came to me in a magical Amazon Prime box. In case you don't know, "I offer free shipping" is a great pick-up line.

My thoughts were something like this: Um, it's decaf. But it's apparently special. I mean, it says so on the package, "The World Finest Coffee". (That's a direct quote.)

A roasting date of September-something was written on the back of the package, as well as some good coffee making directions. I didn't get a picture of that - oops.

Inside, whole bean…

Moon Pie Coffee!

This post contains affiliate links.As the name of this blog implies, I love coffee. In fact, my entire family loves coffee. It's a main food group. It's a sickness. I might as well be a Gilmore Girl. Mama needs the morning cup of life. 

We were walking through the grocery store the other day when something amazing jumped right off the shelf and into my cart! Of course, it was COFFEE! 
I looked down at the package:
 M O O N   P I E   C O F F E E
I had no other choice than to buy it. It seemed that I was put in this very grocery store for such a time as this! 
Let me start by saying that the state while I was raised in is, geographically speaking, a southern state. I was not raised in The South. Apparently, there is a difference that even google recognizes on its first page! 
My point? I did not grow up with Moon Pies! Mr. Incredible and Pirate on the other hand, having been born and raised here in the South have the experience that I lack. We had to try it! 
As soon as we got home, Pi…

We've MOVED!

Exciting things are happening here at Caffeinated Melly. One of which is a new blogging platform. Blogger has been great, honest! But it is time for something new!
Our new home:
We're still moving in, so bare with us as we haven't finished unpacking and settling in yet. We're still in the process of transferring our content over to our new platform, but ALL OF OUR NEW STUFF WILL BE HERE.

You can still visit this page, it's not going anywhere and I'll have a link set up in the menu bar.

Thanks for sticking with us and I hope you enjoy the new fun we have in store!
