Anderson has been sick the past few days. Just this morning he had his first bites of food thanks to some friends stopping by real quickly- one to kill some time before a doctor's appointment and the other to drop off my tart pan she had borrowed. Both were excuses for them to get out of the house with their kids and I was happy to have the company now that Anderson was on the mend and not contagious anymore.
Although I got Anderson dressed before their arrival I was still rocking my Christmas plaid pajamas and uggs when they arrived. The house was somewhat picked up though and I had Mariah Carey Pandora playing so all would be happy. I also had my Mr. Coffee Latte machine which I was given about a month ago. It made asking friends if they wanted a quick chai super simple. It also makes lattes with ease, gingerbread ones at that. Yesterday I was able to make a quick warm drink before heading out on a cold walk with the boy.
I have to say when the machine arrived I was skeptical. Was this simply going to be warming milk and adding in coffee? Isn't that a cafe au lait? Things picked up though as I've experienced the nice convenience of this one-stop-shop. It really is easy to manage and I can see loving it to make tea lattes and hot chocolate in as well. No stove top mess and no other parts to clean.
The Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte values at $99 but you can get it for
$10 off plus free shipping if you use this code: MLAT10A.
Could be the perfect gift for that person who spends too much money on fancy coffee drinks or like me enjoys a cup of something fun around 3:00 but is too frugal to go spend money on a coffee!
This machine will be coming with us to my parents this Christmas so we can try out some more creations with it, so far my favorite being the gingerbread latte recipe they suggest. Thanks, Mr. Coffee!
