RE: Speaking of Coffee
My wife and I ALWAYS have real 18% cream in the fridge. Just a little bit makes a nice creamy coffee without diluting it. I discovered that by using the higher fat, I use so much less that my fat intake is less than if I use half and half. (Also don't always use cream. Depends on my mood and type of coffee)

The wife and switched to non-dairy creamer because it (presumably) lasts longer and comes in flavors. now that i found that article, though, we won't be purchasing non-dairy creamer again. I actually dumped my coffee when I found that out.

Yeah. There's some nasty shit in that creamer. Thats why it lasts so long. Even bacteria find it unappetizing! LOL

The wife and I are on the phone talking abut going greener. funny that coffee creamer was the catalyst for it. We had considered it for a while, but we're doing real research into it now.

(ETA: and i really like that frugal canada site I referenced above. Looks like it might help us with a lot of great ideas.)

Thank you. now back to coffee...lol

I'm a fan of Kona, but find it prohibitively expensive to buy 100%. What I wind up doing is buying a whole bean in bulk, and grinding it myself. Then I mix in the Kona and make a Kona blend.

RE: Speaking of Coffee
I never drank coffee in my life until about a year ago. I got one of those Keurig machines so you can make individual cups. If not I would waste a whole pot. Coffee to me is simply a means to get Bailey's into my bloodstream in a slow socially acceptable, concelable manner. I like the flavored stuff. They make a Butter toffee that is great also a pralines and cream.
