      My oh my.. what a wonderful treat this morning. Great Great flavors, came in hand took it to the local football field, in a thermos to watch some Pee-Wee football games here today, came in handy, cool, and damp. Definately a winner here that DS and I enjoyed. Had the coffee beans grinded at the Harry and David here in town. Made for PRMR tag.

      I was really a bit surprised at how very good this is. I used ready ground coffee Columbian coffee (it's what I had). The cornstarch doesn't really thicken it as such but seems to give it some extra body and whats not to love about brown sugar (Splenda Brown Sugar Blend) and cinnamon? I tried to float a star anise but it just sank lol! Thanks so much Sharon, what a great way to start my day!
