Weekend Wanderings: Steamed Milk and Peppermint Joe-Joes

11 Days 'til Christmas - Wrap Up
Oh, branding. Source:
I had a quiet sort of weekend.  After several busy weeks and weekends, the house was a disaster, schoolwork was left undone, and I was generally feeling a bit harried.  As a result, I generally stayed in and tried to catch up this weekend, doing a bit of laundry and cleaning, taking a trip to Trader Joe's, and reading a whole lot of poetry for the last two weeks of school.

There was one quiet moment that I'd like to remember though.  At about 10pm last night, Rob was over after dinner, and Roger decided he wanted some coffee.  The only coffee-shop open that late near us was Starbucks, so we headed over there, and I ordered a steamed milk with caramel.  I don't know why it took me to long to discover that steamed milk is "my drink" at most coffee-shops, but it's delicious and if you've never had one, it's a warm, sweet treat that you deserve.  Try it.  We brought our coffees back home, and enjoyed them with one of our Trader Joe's purchases, peppermint joe-joes, which seem to be the most wonderful combination of oreos and thin mints ever made.  I love peppermint deserts, and two of these cookies felt like the perfect indulgence.

And now, back to the poetry.
