& since i am already chronologizing
(one gotta chronologize the stupidity now & then)
here this photo of my Monday morning cappuccino!
I make these cappuccinos with the help
of my stove-top espresso machine here
1. i heat milk in a pot
2. before it starts boiling, i reduce the heat & blend while heating with old-fashioned hand blender, for about 1 minute
3. serve some milk & with a spoon some foam into a cup
4. slowly pour a shot (or more heh heh heh) of the espresso, wait until it separates in 2 layers...
oh! i didn't have a transparent mug before!
so i've been drinking these cappuccinos for a while
but didn't know how they look!
until i got this mug for $1.99
my cappuccinos got the double layer going on!
oh well &
5. sprinkle some grounded cinnamon on top, for the *starbucks* effect
mmm, can't wait to be tomorrow morning! to wake up myself to one of these
