100 Book Challenge: May 2013

Whoops! Forgot alllll about my May post.  May was hectic! Between communions, birthdays, and graduation parties there was little time left for ANYTHING. It was great spending lots of time with our family and friends though. It was a slow reading month....

29. Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) Cassandra Clare
I have to mention that this was the last book in the trilogy and it was AMAZING. Top favorite over here!! The conclusion was perfect, I'm still thinking about it weeks later.

30. Requiem (Delirium #3) Lauren Oliver

31. Delirium Stories ( #0.5, #1.5, #2.5) Lauren Oliver

Making Iced Coffee

My process of making iced coffee taken from the Pioneer Woman's Recipe.
I usually also use Cafe Bustelo (in decaf of course) but this time I used Pilon. So far I am enjoying Pilon more. But they are very similar. 

What you need: water, two containers, and a can of espresso. 

 Fill container with water and stir in can of espresso.

Let it sit overnight.

This is how I filter the coffee. Whatever I had on hand. A colander and left over coffee filters from an old coffee maker. I ladle batches in and then replace the filter. This takes some time. I do my normal daily routine in between ladling in more coffee.

Just starting out...

The finished product. Some sugar and cream with a little ice to top it off.

Next batch I make I think I'm going to put some vanilla bean in and let it sit over night.
