Day 6: No Cell Phone....But I've Got a Toasted Almond!

Who knew I would ever get so stressed out by not having a cell phone for 5 days?

I was supposed to have my phone today.  It was to come Fed Ex 2nd Day. Even though Fed Ex can receive a package on a Sunday, and can even scan the tracking number into their system before the start of business day Monday (I'm talking 4:10am), Monday 9am starts the count of day one. Even everyone at Verizon is STILL convinced that they paid for a service that would guarantee my phone to arrive today. But, alas, it did not.

But, thanks to the awesome guy and girl at the Verizon store is Sea Girt, they were able to finagle something to have the phone redirected to work so that I can sign for it!!! Yay!!! Too bad FedEx wouldn't do something like that...  I am not thrilled that I don't have my phone now. Call me a coward, but I HATE driving long distances without the phone. 70 miles one way to work is NOT a good thing when there's no way to be prepared in case of emergency!

And what's the other bad thing that happened today? Glee is a rerun.  So I cleaned up the office a bit. And that's when I saw it. A bottle of DiSaronno staring me in the face....

Toasted Almond

1oz amaretto (DiSaronna or Amaretto di Amore are faves)
1oz coffee liqueur (Kamora or Kahlua)
1-1/2 to 2oz cream (I use Land O'Lakes fat free 1/2 and 1/2)

Put all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
Strain into a rocks glass.
Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon.
Use a cinnamon stick for a garnish.
