My two daughters have no idea what the words “sleeping in” mean. Weekends? Nope, they are both up at their usually 7:05-7:15am time. I am tired.
Like most moms I get my pick me up from coffee. I am a frequent visitor of Starbucks but that’s when I’m out running errands. In the mornings I break out my Keurig and use the Starbucks K-Cups. My husband and I love them but sometimes a change is good so I went out for some good ol’ drip coffee.
On Thursday I had both girls at home with me because we were leaving for a little mini vacation to celebrate my uncle’s surprise 60th birthday party. I knew that morning was going to be hectic so the night before I ran to Walmart to see if I could find something that would be yummy and quick and easy breakfast meal.
I ended up seeing this Delicious Pairings sign in the Bakery section and it was calling my name. Dark French Roast (and I grabbed some Blonde roast too) and The Bakery at Walmart Gourmet Cinnamon Rolls. I swear I thought I was in heaven and I never wanted to leave. The last box of cinnamon rolls didn’t have icing on them (and who can have a cinnamon roll without icing?!) so I asked the nice ladies at the bakery counter and she gladly added a generous amount.
I hurried home, packed all our stuff just in time to watch American Idol.
As I said, I usually use the K-Cups but for a change I decided to break out the regular coffee machine and use grounds. I loved the instant aroma I got from opening up the bag of coffee. The Dark French roast is very intense and smoky. It definitely gave me a great kick to my day and I was ready for the 10+ hour car ride I had ahead of me.
I forgot how great it is to use regular coffee grounds so I’ll definitely be purchasing the Starbucks coffee more often and of course I won’t be forgetting the Walmart Cinnamon Rolls.
