I’m back! Back from my awesome weekend. I’ll post the pictures and the stories later. I never much LIKE coming back home to reality, never the less…. I’m back. Back to teenage munchkin, who has the flu, God love her. Back to unpacking, cleaning and most of all back to the coffee pot that I left plugged in all weekend. Plugged in WITH coffee and vanilla syrup in it. Why did it not burn down the house, IDK. I can’t even scrub the coffee off the bottom of the pot. It turned into coffee concrete! A friend of mine told us to use salt and lemon juice to soak off the coffee rock. Yeah…. THAT’S not working. Now I’ve got the coffee rock heating back up with water, vinegar and salt. PRAYING that it works because I can NOT live without coffee!
(yeah.. I found this on the net but mine actually looks MUCH worse)
Basically, we put 1 tsp sea salt into the coffee pot, 2 cups ice, juice of 1/4 lemon (I’m using the whole dang lemon). You swish the water around until the ice melts and if the ice doesn’t melt, add COLD water (cause hot water will make the pot crack). The abrasiveness of the salt and acid content of the lemon mixed with ice is SUPPOSED to take that burnt coffee right off. Hmm… we shall see about that! So far… not working:-(
It’s important that I let you all know that I’ll be fine! Cause I’m sure you’re all worried about how I’ll live without coffee. I have a VERY old electric percolator from my 80 (plus) year old aunt… THANK YOU Aunt Betty, for making me take your special coffee pot when you down sized! lol It makes a pretty awesome pot of coffee, in case you were wondering. lol It looks JUST like THIS
Enjoy your Monday WordPress World! Oh and don’t leave with the coffee pot on. You’ll be sorry!!!!!
