Homemade Iced Vanilla Coffee

It has been a long day of cleaning, doing dishes (yes, I'm still without a working dishwasher), and weeding. Because the front yard is looking a tad more inviting, and because I deserve a break every now and then, I decided to enjoy a quiet moment or two on the front porch with some homemade iced coffee and my book.  Plus, I felt it in my heart that Husband needed a cold one, as he's been working up in the shop sawing and welding or doing whatever he's up to that requires jeans with grease on them and dirt smudges on his face.  Yes, quite attractive.

Iced Coffee

4 cups fresh brewed coffee
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup boiling water
3 cups ice
1/2 cup cream ( I used 1% milk today)

Refrigerate coffee until cool, about 30 minutes. Stir vanilla extract and sugar in the boiling water until dissolved. Refrigerate sugar mixture until cool, about 30 minutes. Divide the ice and chilled coffee evenly between the four glasses. Stir in cream and sugar mixture, to taste.

Mmm Hmm.

Until next time,

I am not sure what I did but I couldn't find where to comment on your latest post & it is just so beautiful! I love your little things! That REALLy is what life is about. Enjoying all the little things adds joy to each day & makes us soooo thankful for our blessings doesn't it? :)

This iced coffee is making me crave some right now again :)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
