Random Wednesday: Songs, Scheduling, and Starbucks

I woke up with the title song from Big Green Alligator in my head.  So much fun.

It's Wednesday, and I still feel as though I'm in catch-up mode this week.  I did manage to put together a menu plan, so at least we're not starving. :)  And I made time yesterday to read, to put four miles on the stationary bike, and to get a little rest.  So I'm behind schedule, but I'm staying sane.  As sane as usual, anyway.

I decided to try the Starbucks Caffe Verona (from the BzzAgent kit I received on Saturday) this morning.  The package directions say to use two tablespoons of coffee per six ounces of water, so I did.  I have a feeling that I'll be scraping myself off the ceiling, because this coffee is twice as concentrated as what I usually make.

Although I usually drink coffee with plenty of milk, I wanted to try this straight.  No milk, no sugar, no cinnamon.  Well ... hmmm ... I'll agree with the package description of BOLD.  The dark-roasted flavor is too powerful for my taste.  I liked it better after I added milk, but I don't think I'd choose this blend in the future.

But that brings me to another point:  The Starbucks Caffe Verona that I received is a 5-ounce "Intro Size" package.  I don't know how they're priced in stores, but it seems like a convenient way to try new flavors.  (My ShopRite supermarket doesn't carry the Intro Size packages, but the 12-ounce bags of Starbucks coffee are on sale this week for $6.99.)

Disclosure:  Through BzzAgent, I received samples of Starbucks coffee, at no cost to me, for review purposes.


  1. Target has a coupon online right now for a dollar or so off a bag of SB coffee. I used mine this morning. :)

  2. What a yummy way to start off your day! I'm playing catch up as well. Monday was my birthday and I just took the entire day off... bad idea!

  3. And you just keep rubbing it in you got this kit and I didn't ... LOL

    I'm so jealous! I'm out of coffee and need it!
