Oh no, Monday. Welcome back to our daily open thread.
I’ve gotten into cold brew lately, after a lifetime spent insisting coffee that isn’t hot isn’t worth drinking. I’ve been drinking it with milk, a coffee habit I weaned myself off of to, as I put it at the time, break free of the tyranny of purchasing dairy (and also to feel butch about drinking coffee black). It’s expensive to buy the concentrate, so I’ve been thinking about making it myself, but despite drinking more coffee than is medically advisable, I don’t think I’m all that great at actually making coffee because I’m very casual about measuring. I do like the idea of a cooking project that involves cheesecloth but no actual cooking, though.
I’ve also noticed a distressing uptick in feeling anxious lately, which I’m completely sure has nothing to do with this new cold brew habit. So now I have to weigh my hipster morning treat against sighing “oh my god, calm down” at myself several times a day.
So that’s my life lately. What about you? How’s it going?
