I hate McDonalds and I never go there. Never, that is, until they started advertising their irresistible looking new iced coffee everywhere. Once I tried one I couldn't stop and I started buying one of those pretty much every time I drove by a McDonalds. I wanted to see if I could make it at home instead, so I searched and found out that all you have to do is add a can of sweetened condensed milk to six-eight cups of coffee, and toss in some ice cubes (preferably made out of coffee). I have been loving this and have, for the last week or so, been making a pitcher of it every night before I go to bed so it's all ready for me in the morning. I brewed it with half decaf and half half-decaf so the whole pitcher was roughly 75% decaf, and I thought I was doing well. I never looked at the label on the condensed milk, mostly because I figured it wasn't that healthy and I didn't want to know how bad it really was. Today, I looked. Yikes. I have been ingesting 1300 calories and 30 grams of fat every day just from this iced coffee! No more iced coffee for me. I am so sad.
Here are a couple pictures of Emma at the children's farmstead today.
