September 11th .... 18 years later

I find it difficult to believe it has been 18 years since the horror of this day began.

I also find it difficult to believe that so many seem to have forgotten what happened that day, even though we promised to never forget.

Yet so many were so little, that we tried to protect them from the images of the day, or were not even born that day.  

And we have survived.  We will continue to survive and prove that we are strong, we are stronger as a nation than any of the adversities that have come, and will come, to our shores.

As a remembrance of all those who lost their lives, to all the families who were forever changed that day, my only post today will be for them.  I hope that you will look back at one of my original posts from the past Meet Me in the Stairwell.

God Bless them all, 
September 11, 2001.
We will never forget.

Creamy Cold Brew

I just got my Tupperware Cold Brew Container so I am definitely going to be trying this one, as well as some of the other "flavorings" that are available.  I think, although don't quote me on this, that cold brew is less acidic than regular brew.  I will be looking for more info on that one too and will share when I find it.

Serves: 8 | Serving size: 5 oz.
1 cup coarse coffee
Filtered water
For 1 serving:
4 oz. ready to drink cold brew coffee
1 tbsp. Torani Salted Caramel Syrup
2 tbsp. evaporated milk
1. Insert metal filter into the Cold Brew Carafe, add coarse coffee to first fill line (ready to drink fill line).
2. Slowly pour filtered room temperature/cool water into Carafe. 
3. Allow the water to filter down before adding more. Fill to water fill line (where the metal filter meets the plastic funnel).
4. Cover and refrigerate for 8-12 hours.
5. Remove filter and discard coffee grounds.
6. To serve, in All-in-One Shaker pour 4 oz. ready to drink cold brew coffee, Torani Salted Caramel Syrup and evaporated milk. 
7. Seal and shake vigorously until well combined. 
8. Pour over ice and serve.
