National Coffee Break Day is Today!

Whether you work in or outside the home, taking a coffee break is integral to work productivity.  You know you change diapers much better after having a warm cup of joe!

Really, isn't taking a coffee break necessary to breathing, eating and sleeping?  For sure a basic need.  Well, maybe I am exaggerating.  But in any case, I need to have a daily coffee break.  My husband's dream would be to live above a coffee shop where he could have an unlimited supply of the beverage for his coffee breaks.  I have to say, that would be kind of cool.  However, that isn't our reality.  So to celebrate National Coffee Day, how about a couple of fun coffee drinks you can make at the event you don't live above a coffee shop.

Dine and Dish has created this latte.
First, stir together ground coffee (3/4 cup ground coffee) and  1 teaspoon cinnamon. Brew coffee in coffeemaker using 3 cups cold water.  Pour 1 (14 ounce can) sweetened condensed milk into a separate large coffee pot. Add the hot brewed coffee, stirring until thoroughly blended.  Pour coffee mixture into mugs. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with additonal cinnamon, if desired. Serve immediately. 

Wouldn't that be great for a coffee break?  Or how about this...

Starbuck's may have stopped their seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte, but no worries!  You can have it all year!  Take that Starbuck's!  Check out Recipes of My Natural Market for this coffee recipe.  You won't be sorry!

Look at what time it is...time for a coffee break!  No need to head out, get your coffee maker going!
Sit down, put up your feet and breathe because it is National Coffee Break Day and I think that entitles you to celebrate it with a cup of coffee a few times during the day today.

Take time to celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
