It’s only Wednesday and I have already typed in, “Is it okay if my dog eats…” into Google three times this week. And it’s always after our dog Sam, who is clumsy in all aspects of his life with terrible depth perception and hind legs that don’t work well with his front, becomes a 45 lb. stealth ninja warrior with the ability to steal food from the counter and pantry without anyone realizing he’s there.
So in case any of you are wondering, bananas are okay, oatmeal is okay, and popcorn will not only increase a dog’s caloric intake for the day, but unpopped kernals can cause tooth damage, become lodged in the mouth and cause tooth infections, dental disease or an upset stomach, and don’t worry, your favorite pink ankle sock will pass through in 2-3 weeks.
Aren’t you glad that you have me to enlighten you in all aspects of life?
So I hope you believe me when I say that I really needed my cup of coffee this morning because 1) it’s cheaper than therapy and 2) I’ve been on a cold-brewed iced coffee kick that I can’t kick for weeks.
- 1/3 cup ground coffee (medium-coarse grind is best)
- 1 1/2 cups cold, filtered water
- Almond milk (optional)
- In a jar, stir together coffee and 1 1/2 cups cold water. Cover and let rest at room temperature overnight or 12 hours.
- Strain twice through a coffee filter, a fine-mesh sieve or a sieve lined with cheesecloth. In a tall glass filled with ice, mix equal parts coffee concentrate and water, or to taste. If desired, add milk.
