At the grocery.....

I guess we wish this was a recent picture. He is smiling so he must have been making money....

Lots of coconut things are coming out. We don't get new products that soon so you may have tried this already.


Last night on the news there was a feature on Keurig cups, the kind you buy that are filled with coffee. The criticism is that they are not recyclable, because foil and paper are combined inside.

I like Columbian coffee so I have always used the make-it-yourself pods that came with the machine, but I found these new ones at Meijers, which I like better and use a paper filter which is a lot less clean-up. If you use these machines you will understand what I mean. The paper filter with the coffee can just be tossed in the garden. The plastic EZ Cup is $12.99 and the paper filters are 4.99 for 50. Even with buying the filters and your own ground coffee it is cheaper than the Keurig cups, which can't be recycled. Just a thought.

My Keurig is right up there on my list of favorites with my computer and camera and all of you.

I agree with you, blog friends, computers and coffee are among my favorite things!!!
I recently gave up trying to drink coffee due to reflux. I still would love a cup, especially with certain foods!
Have a blessed weekend.

i'll have to look for those ez cups. I love my coffee maker too and it does have that part that you can use other coffees in, but I've not tried it yet. I have coffee in the cupboard that really should be used so maybe it's time for me to try it out.

I bought a Keurig for my daughter a few years ago, and they like it so well, that I thought about getting one myself, even though I only drink my coffe iced and on my commute to work. Then I found a brand new never-out-of-the-box one at Goodwill for $35. I made sure they had a return policy so I could return it if it didn't work, or if I found it grungy or something. But you could tell that it had never been unpacked. I love it. I'm going to look for the cup and filters. thx!
