This is a quick and simple suggestion for enjoying your iced coffee this summer. Whenever we make a pot of French Press, we make extra so that we can keep it cold in the fridge. The special tip involves the ice cubes. On a hot day it is a bummer when the cubes melt and the coffee is watered down to a particularly unpleasant tasting drink. Make a tray of ice cubes with the saved coffee. Keep the cubes in a bag in the freezer and just drop a couple in your glass. It makes a world of difference and is so easy.

I was addicted to Diet Coke for years. Very bad. It was often my first drink in the morning. I would say that I drank at least a dozen cans a day. I loved it. It was, for me, the most thirst quenching and satisfying drink. And from the can was how I wanted it. Over ice, cold and so bubbly it hurt going down.
It wasn’t easy but I kicked the habit when I moved to Portland. I had read too many awful things about how it was poison, and would corrode a penny, (not that I needed my pennies) and all that other stuff that finally gave me pause.
So, I switched to drinking iced tea. I either use sugar or stevia, and I love it as much as I loved my DC, except for when I have good Chinese food, then I miss it.
I love all kinds of iced tea and put different fruits and herbs in. Sliced lemon or lime, mint, even rosemary recently in a smoky blend.

“Originally, we were looking at their space for Little Bird. It’s got a super-minimalist vibe. I think it’s the best brunch in town and you don’t have to wait for it. Dinner’s great, too. Definitely one of the most overlooked gems in Portland. There’s a dish at breakfast called Kentucky Hot Brown that’s brioche toast and eggs and bacon and mornay sauce. It’s badass.”
