As previously mentioned on my About page, I don’t really cook. Mainly because I get bored with it and am easily distracted. Not a good personality trait when you’re dealing with open flames!
Case in point… This morning I prepared my coffee cup with my usual creamer and sugar, then reached for the coffee pot. As I poured it into my coffee cup, I noticed it was pretty weak coffee. Almost clear… Yep, I had made a pot of hot water. My skills are undeniable, but what the heck happened to my coffee?! I then opened the top of the coffee maker and realized I had apparently forgotten one of the four, simple steps to making coffee.
- Place cup carafe under drip. Check!
- Fill water reservoir. Check!
- Insert filter. Check!
- Place coffee grinds in filter. Oops! I must have been distracted
by something shiny.
I am currently waiting for the coffee pot to finishing brewing a second time. I hope your Monday started better than mine!
What was your last Monday morning oops?
