Quick & Easy Sugar Container

I love coffee.
Coffee makes me feel like a grown-up in the  middle of Phineas & Ferb and Blue's Clues.
Coffee often needs sugar.
Until yesterday, I faced a small annoyance.
If I was to put sugar in my coffee I had to get the 10-lb bag down from the top of the fridge and scoop my sugar from there.
Tuesday, I was in the Dollar Store and found a little sugar jar (like they have in restaurants) and thought about getting it. But didn't.

So there I was, little Miss 5-foot-3-inches when I stand up straight, straining to get the sugar from the shelf above the fridge realizing that if I didn't find something soon, this would inevitably end in a sweet sugary mess on the floor. The kind of mess that my child would spot from a mile away and dive into before I had a chance to clean it up. And all this would happen in slow motion while I'm yelling, "Nooooooooooooo!" Something had to be done!!


The Solution:

A CANNING JAR + PARMESAN CHEESE LID!
Do you have a jar of Parmesan? Don't throw the lid away when you're done with it! The lid will fit perfectly on a regular sized canning jar!

Luckily for us, Pirate found the Parmesan in the fridge earlier this week and emptied it out onto the floor. I hadn't gotten rid of the jar yet; I fished a canning jar out of my pantry and screwed them together. A perfect fit!
Washed.
Dried.
Full of sugar.
And we lived happily ever after!

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!

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!
