Mood Enhancer

1. Giant 2-cup-capacity Starbucks mug.
2. Enough coffee to fill it about halfway.



3. Milk or milk-like product.
4. Chocolate syrup or powder: lots.
5. Peppermint extract: just a few drops or it'll taste like toothpaste.



6. Refrigerate.
7. Sip from all day long.

lol...I just read the Thurs post and then followed a link on the side. Then when I came back to your site, I was tickled to find a new Fri post! TGIF!

Your fridge looks so nice and clean, with the added bonus of that liquid treat :) ~Jenny in MD

P.S. If you haven't finished your "liquid treat" by this evening, you could add some "adult liquid" to it to transition to "evening use." :) ~Jenny in MD

Jenny in MD-- PHOTOSHOPPED. I did that with the counter, too: used the "bandaid" tool to erase blots. I suppose I could also use a washcloth to do the same thing, but whatevs.

See that nice pretty shelf in the fridge the coffee and orange juice is resting on? A few months ago I idiotically set a hot casserole dish on mine and it SHATTERED. I miss that shelf.

I also miss coffee, which the mean nurse told me not to drink for a few weeks.

Sorry, I'm cracking up about the photoshopped fridge!!!

I'm sitting here drinking my mood enhancer- coffee with liquid fat free french vanilla creamer. Times about 4 cups. =)

Yummy, Swistle! I always put the packets of Swiss Miss in my coffee, but I'll start adding the peppermint extract. Thanks!

Mimi said...

Ooooh... refrigerated! An unexpected twist. This looks fantastic. I'm making coffee already.

Misty said...

1. Oh, Hey! I think we have the same fridge...

2. Ugh, your shelves are MUCH cleaner than mine.

Misty said...

3. Just saw the comment that they are photoshoped.

4. Feel much better about self. :)

I can't even comment about the coffee treat because I can't quit laughing at photoshopped refrigerator shelves. HA!

I do this with my leftover coffee! Keep it overnight in the fridge & then I have the Nestle Java Mocha Iced Coffee syrup to add along with copious amounts of milk :) Nice iced mocha can really hit the spot!

I am crying right now. Literally crying with laughter. How did you get so funny? I don't think it's just the coffee alone, even if adult liquid was added. I am not going to clean ever again, just Photoshop EVERYTHING. You rock. You are my hero. ~Jenny in MD

Saly said...

Hmm, can I photoshop my whole house?

Now I want a delicious drink, and I am at work.

ONE LAST COMMENT, and then I promise to leave you alone. The only thing that would have made your PHOTOSHOPPED CLEAN fridge look better would have been to put our chicken friend in there, unmentioned by you, so we could all play Mr. Pickles virtually with you as you sipped your iced treat throughout the day and waited for our comments re: Mr. Pickles to pour in. Okay, that's it for now. ~Jenny in MD

I wonder what would happen if you blended this with ice? Would it be like a frap?

Mairzy said...

That is such a good idea and you make me laugh a lot.

Alice said...

i am SO bringing peppermint extract into work starting MONDAY.

Nowheymama said...

I am going to fix myself one of these RIGHT NOW. I limited myself to one cup of coffee this morning before the bumpy-hour-long-field-trip-bus ride.

It's good to be home.

Angella said...

OK. I am at work and have access to NONE of those ingredients (Well, except coffee). NO FAIR.

Erin said...

I start my days out with almost exactly the same every day. It's no longer so much a mood enhancer as an ADDICTION. Like I care about one little addiction. Drink up, sister!

Christina said...

At my last job we used to save the extra morning coffee by putting it into a pitcher (much like the one pictured) and then use it for afternoon iced coffees! Yummy, used up the coffee, and we didn't have to wait for it to chill!

Mama Bub said...

I don't even drink coffee and I want that.

Michelle said...

mmmmmmmm. Yummy. Now I know what to do when my husband goes to work and leaves behind part of a pot of coffee :)

The Amazing Trips said...

Hey Miss Swistle - lover of all things sweet and baker of all things delicious - please drop by my blog and check out my post from today.

And then, if you can find it in your awesome heart - please help spread the word on this contest we're hosting to win a new KitchenAid.

Love, Jen

DCMomma said...

That sounds delicious! MM. I am nothing without my cup of coffee in the morning! Enjoy!

annenahm said...

nom nom nom... Cannot wait to get back on caffeine.

Astarte said...

Ooohhhhh, that sounds GOOD. I don't have any syrup, but I'll bet powdered cocoa would work in a pinch. I have some terrible fancy cocoa that someone got me this Xmas which tastes like bitter chocolate, and is not at ALL appropriate for hot cocoa, but I'll bet in coffee it would be fine!!!! hooray!

Michelle said...

Yeah... that was my lunch today. And I think I'll be up until 3am. Oops :)
