2 Peas Challenge

Today's blogging challenge: What is your absolute favorite beverage of choice?

Answer: At Starbucks, it's a triple grande caramel latte, with whip and drizzle, heated to 170 degrees. At Caribou Coffee, it's a Caramel Highrise, heated to 170 degrees. Same thing. Just takes less time to say it at Caribou. Don't even want to know about calorie count. Don't even care.

At Starbucks, I have get an oatmeal raisin cookie to go with my triple-caramel-latte-with-whip-and-drizzle-heated-to-170-degrees. At Caribou, it's an orange-cranberry scone. I prefer the scones because they remind me of Pike's Place Market in Seattle. In fact, when we were in Seattle, we actually visited the original Starbucks, pictured here. That was pretty cool. Of course, I ordered my usual.

Regardless of where it comes from or how ridiculously long it takes me to say, I have found that a good caramel latte will take care of most of my troubles. There's just something about one that makes me feel good. Warm and cozy.

The caramel latte sounds yummy, but it is not for me. Scones are always a good choice as are oatmeal raisin cookies. I just had a apple/cinnamone scone at Camilles.

This is really boring...I prefer water. Bottled water when I'm traveling and cold tap water when I'm at home. Sometimes warm tap water with honey and apple cider vinegar.

Once upon a time I would have said Diet Coke. If I choose to have a soda, it has to be Sierra Mist.
