My Own Starbucks

Hello All!

I'm not gonna lie- one of the wonderful things about getting married has been the gadgets! My friends and husband know that I am the biggest coffee freak out there and I literally jumped up and down when we got our espresso machine!

We first used it this weekend to make lattes, making me one happy girl on Sunday morning when we enjoyed breakfast outside in the sunshine. This morning my special barista busted out this latte for us- this is the giant container used to steam the milk. I drank out of it when nobody was watching, and also took a really dark picture:

It was glorious. I also enjoyed this lovely drink with my new obsession- an eggwhite breakfast sandwich- super easy, and filling:

  • Egg whites microwaved for 90 seconds
  • Tabasco
  • Sprouts
  • Sandwich Thin (Orowheat brand here in Cali)
  • Some camera shy hummus on the other half

Along with my organic skim milk latte, this breakfast completely kicked Starbucks' booty- and was dirt cheap. Take that!

Ha I am happy that you are enjoying all of your wedding gifts =)

I love when at home meals taste just as good as the ones you usually have to go out and buy
