Hope everyone had a safe & happy Halloween yesterday! I dressed up for work trick or treat as Raggedy Ann.
What a sweet doll! :) haha
Saw it. Pinned it. Did it.
Today's post should be called Saw it. Pinned it. Screwed it up. Because that's exactly what I did.
Looks delish, right?
I had gotten fed up with spending so much money at starbucks when I could just make it at home myself.
As you know already, I'm not Mrs. Susie Homemaker by any means, so when I read PW's recipe, I knew I needed to follow it to the letter.
Since she used enourmous container, I needed to use them too.
So, I bought two of these on amazon for $25 each. As well as the cheese cloth and strainer since I had none of these items on hand. I also bought a pound of coffee at starbucks.
After following all the instructions, I was so excited to try my first glass of iced coffe. I am not a patient person, so it was a big deal to let the coffee steep for so long. After pouring the liquid (I'm not even going to call it coffee.) into a pitcher, I noticed it was the consistancy oil. Oh well..maybe this is just a side effect of making it at home. I'm sure it will taste fine.
It was terrible. And the worst part is that I have no idea how I messed it up. Usually I can say specifically where I deviated from the recipe and shouldn't have, but I can't think of a single thing I could have done wrong.
Now I'm stuck with huge container and cheese cloth that I will probably never use again. Typical.
