If I can only choose one style of coffee as my favorite, it will be Affogato. Cold ice cream floating in hot espresso, creamy sweetness melting into the black intoxicating bitters. I want to slow down and savor the wonderful hot, cold, bitter, sweet contrast but minutes of indulgence are often short for a dessert like this. Small as it can be, one serving is never enough.
We eat bittergourd even when we do not want any bitterness in our life. We eat chilli even when it burns our tongue. We eat sweets more than we should. We drink lemonade even when it make our faces cringed and inner cheeks shrink. But still, life should be full with these flavors. And what happens when life gives you lemons? Make lemonade. This isn’t a new quote but yes, go make that damn lemonade. With meyer lemons if possible.
BANANA SMOOTHIE is possibly my favorite on-the-go breakfast. It only takes 5 minutes to make and 2 minutes to drink. It’s quick, healthy, provides a good dose of energy and most importantly, delicious. Smoothie is best drunk when it’s cold but I don’t like the idea of blending ice cubes into the smoothie, which can dilute the taste. One easy way to have undiluted cold smoothie (anytime) is to freeze the fruits. So I always have little bags of frozen chopped bananas in the freezer ready when I need a quick blend.
Anyone who browse online bookstores lately would knew what’s the rave on the bestseller list lately. The phenomenal 50 Shades Trilogy stays put on top three for months till today. I ignored it initially because a queue of novels on my shelf are waiting for me to read and collecting dust at the same time so I try (very hard) not to lengthen the queue, and also because I wasn’t aware of the erotic content of the bestseller trilogy, until I saw an article from a female magazine. Who isn’t curious about the universally well-known erotic novels? So I started reading it with ebook (no extra load on the shelf).
