^^Doesn't that title sound like it could be an episode of The Big Bang Theory?
A terrible thing happened in my apartment recently...I ran out of my favorite instant coffee. It is called Bru and is made of instant coffee + roasted chicory. The taste is like no other coffee and apparently it's a rare find?! The one I had was purchased in Texas and it doesn't seem to be available where I live. They don't even have a website!
(attempted sad face)
I'm such a Bru fiend that I poured boiling water into the empty jar to get the last of the powdery coffee that was stuck to the inside walls of the glass. It's available for purchase online but it's way expensive with shipping & handling.
So I need your help- what is your favorite instant coffee brand (if you have one)?! I cannot handle making coffee in my coffee maker because if I do, I will drink the entire pot of coffee and my right eye will start twitching. True story.
Luckily, the coffee at the student union is drinkable so I've been limping by on that for a few days. I had a cup this morning with what is turning into my weekly Wednesday croissant.
Of course, I got it at the farmer's market!
I also got some (more!) kohlrabi, and a new-to-me lettuce called oakleaf. Speaking of the kohlrabi I got last week, I tried eating it 2 ways.
First, I had it raw in a salad. It is the thin white strips you see below:
Also I used corn nuts as creative croutons- yum!
I also sliced the kohlrabi into thin rounds and made veggie chips with it and a sweet potato!
Some were a little "well done."
It was delicious both ways, and I think I will eat the ones I got today raw in salad again. It tasted like a very mild turnip.
Side Note: have you seen these new Sally Hansen nail effects? I love them- so easy to use and such fun prints. Right now I have Kaleidoscope on my nails...
Help! I am desperate for instant coffee recommendations... Please let me know of any brands you prefer- Thank you!
