Last night my friend Amie and I went out to the movies to see "27 Dresses," something neither of our husbands had any interest in. We went for drinks afterwards and were talking about life in general, and the subject of my recent coffee emergency came up. She told me something her husband does that makes complete sense and would have saved my sanity on Tuesday.
He fills a sandwich bag with coffee beans and puts it at the back of the freezer. That's it. An emergency coffee stash so that you can never be completely out of coffee again...brilliant!
And I'm sure it will follow the law that if I have an emergency coffee stash, I will never again run out of coffee...
