I'll give out a quick tip every Sunday...take it or leave it!
You made a big pot of coffee in the morning and were able to put down most of it. Several hours later you go to clean out the pot. Wait! Don't throw that remaining stale, muddy 1/2 cup out. Pour it in a glass, add 1/4 cup milk, ice, and a pinch of sugar substitute. Hello coffee-flavored Yoohoo. It provides a little boost and tastes so good. Plus you're not being wasteful.
