But, oh, dear Lisa, you have turned me on to the Dunkin’ Donuts Decaffeinated Iced coffee with skim milk and no calorie sweetener. This little beauty, an oasis of delight on a hot New York Day, is less than 100 calories and my new best friend.
To sit in the sun and sip this delicious aperitif while lounging poolside does more for the soul than I can express. My son comes by and tells me he can’t find his retainer. “No problem, dear!” My husband lets me know minutes later the car has a flat tire. “We’ll get it fixed”, I answer while pleasantly sipping. My eldest daughter lets me know the school called and will not release her grades until she finds and hands in her algebra book (which she swears she handed in on the last day of school). “We’ll find it in your room”, is my breezy response. I am in coffee heaven!
But, yikes, is it fiscally responsible at $1.85 per medium cup? NO!! I had a Dunkin’ Donuts gift certificate given to me on my birthday which is quickly running out. And to stick to my P & F plan, I just cannot logically reason why I should be spending this much on a cup of coffee. Lucky for me, the Hungry Girl website gives a few recipes on how to concoct your own version. But it won’t be the same!
After the card runs out and the last sip is sipped, I’ll be driving west instead of east, turning corners I do not have to turn, just to avoid the alluring, beckoning pink and orange Dunkin’s Donuts sign on Main Street in my town…
Goodbye, dear coffee, please keep my potato chips good company!!
