We often combine my work with vacations. It's always a new place to visit, Dan goes with and we make an adventure out of it.
Last year, one of those adventures took us to Chicago. I was traveling to meet up with colleagues for planning and strategizing.
After speaking with colleagues we decided to meet in Chicago.
Freezing temperatures and record lows that weekend. Remember the polar vortex? Yes... that was the weekend we were there!
Seriously.... what were we thinking?!!!
In our defense, a member of our group is pregnant, so we picked Chicago so it would be easier for her to participate, so there's that!
I spent 10 years living in the midwest so I've lived in cold climates, but dang!
The one thing I would say though is Dan and I have fun no matter what we do. Though it was a quick weekend, we made it to the top of the Hancock building, enjoying the view on what felt like the top of the world.
From our vantage point, we watched a snow storm creep into the city while sipping espresso.
It may have been cold, but that didn't stop us! However I admit, I was counting the minutes until that plane lifted off Sunday morning. That weekend reminded of the strength and resiliency of midwestern folks!
There was a great deal of coffee and hot chocolate consumed that weekend!
When you're cold and need to warm up, a great cup of coffee or hot chocolate is definitely the place to start! It helps when you can warm from the inside out!
Today I get to share with you my opinion of this espresso maker! I received this shortly before heading to Chicago. We were able to try it out before we left and again after coming home - here's what we love:
convenience • quality • performance
This machine does EXACTLY what it's supposed to do - make high-quality delicious coffee quickly and easily. I like the modern clean lines of the machine. It looks super sharp.
The pods are easy to use and the vessel stores the used pods so they are no stacked on the counter. Love that!
So obviously I couldn't just tell you about this coffee maker, right? I had to share a recipe you can enjoy too! I've been wanting to share how easy it is to make chocolate spoons, so now is a perfect time!
Making Chocolate Spoons
Ingredients for Chocolate Dipped Spoons
- chocolate chips - dark, white or milk chocolate, use what you love best!
- sprinkles - customize for the season, holiday or gathering.
- spoons - you can certainly use disposable spoons, but I love using pretty vintage spoons I pick up at antique stores or garage sales
Pretty simple huh? Though the ingredients are basic, these spoons are filled with flavor!
What can I make with chocolate spoons?
- Chocolate espresso, coffee or even doll-up your hot chocolate!
What kind of spoons do I use to make coffee stir spoons?
You can certainly use plastic spoons, but I purchased these beautiful spoons at a local antique store. They were four for a buck! What a steal and they look so pretty.
No antique stores nearby? Then watch for spoons at garage sales, there's always utensils they are practically giving away.
I found some at the Goodwill Store last week! I dropped off donations and found some new treasures. Total win/win for me!
They can certainly be mismatched too - mine are! I think that makes them more interesting when they aren't matchy-matchy.
Chocolate spoons are a great hostess or teacher gift and perfect for brunch OR a cold day in Chicago, wouldn't you agree? Stirring it into our espresso made it a real treat!
