Today’s To-Do List [Show and Tell Sunday]

After more than ten years of faithful service, my Capresso CoffeeTeam coffeemaker gave up the ghost last Monday. Because freshly-ground beans made into custom-brewed coffee is one of my favorite things from the kitchen, I’ve ordered a new one. Because I really don’t want to make daily Starbucks runs in the meantime (no, seriously, I don’t), I’ve borrowed my dad’s Keurig till it arrives.

sunday coffee.

Duly caffeinated, I put together my “to do” list for the day. My plans for the rest of the day–not necessarily in the following order–include reading, cooking, and writing up reviews for two books I’ve recently finished. It’s doubtful I’ll get much time to for the last of those tasks during the upcoming week.

And if I make decent progress with any of the above, I may take some of the birthday money I received last week out to do a little recreational shopping. I know some of you in the Northeast and upper Midwest are getting spring snow this weekend, but it’s a lovely day here in Southern California and I really don’t want to spend all of it indoors. Happy Sunday!

  1. I have a Keurig, but it isn’t my favourite. It is better than some of the other systems I have had recently, though

  2. My husband doesn’t want to listen to a coffee grinder at 5am, so I use preground coffee. We do have a Keurig too — I like it **when I use my own coffee** and it’s nice for a single cup after dinner when I don’t want to make a whole pot.

    1. I’ve become inordinately fond of whole-bean coffee, but I’m seriously considering keeping some ground coffee on hand if and when I buy one of those reusable filters for the Keurig–I have to admit the convenience is hard to beat!

  3. I’ve bookmarked the coffee maker you’ve ordered for future reference! My husband might like it, even though it costs twice as much as my lovely Bunn (which he thought was pretty pricey) but he’s the one who ends up grinding the coffee in the early morning!

    1. My mother-in-law used to have one, and when I fell in love with it, she got me one of my own as my very first Christmas gift from her :-). I really appreciate that the grinder and the coffeemaker are all-in-one!

  4. Oh, thank goodness for the temporary coffeemaker. Otherwise: almost as bad as being stuck somewhere without a book!
