As well as being behind on listening to Misery for the Misery Readalong, I’m behind on listening to my favorite podcasts – including The Splendid Table with Lynne Rossetto Kasper – due to an embarrassing accident involving my beloved, old, slightly cracked iPod Touch; a very shallow back pocket; and a not yet used toilet.*
Since my phone is bulky and doesn’t fit any of my iPod gear or work with the version of iTunes I was using for all my audiobook and podcast listening, I’ve been drowning my sorrows with copious amounts of iced coffee lately. This weekend I decided to break out the specialty coffee I got for Mother’s Day.
Last time everyone was home, a family argument broke out over how we made iced coffee, because I had switched methods without informing my husband. (We’d never win on that TV show where you have to know everything about what the other spouse would say.) I had remembered reading in one of Lynne’s cookbooks that pouring double-strength, hot coffee immediately over ice was the best way to seal in the fresh-brewed flavor, so I started making iced coffee that way last summer, instead of putting freshly brewed coffee directly into the refrigerator, the way I had been doing.
When I looked up the directions for Perfect Iced Coffee in Lynne’s summertime e-book, Eating In with Lynne, Vol. 2, I realized that what I thought she had said to do wasn’t exactly right. Today I followed the actual directions, and was very happy with the results.
