  2. I drink the free (not very good) coffee at work during the week, but I think I know what I'll be trying this weekend!

  3. Did you know it is international coffe day? Or is this just a coincidence? Love it!
    I am thinking something by Herb Albert and Tiajuana Brass but don't know the tune.

  4. Cookin' with Carson!

    Love it! You need to make the little kitties with the foam as is all the rage in Japan these days!

    I think it is Herb Alpert too, but I don't know the name of the song, picturing you dancing like Pee Wee Herman to "Tequila" as part of the process of shaking the milk.

  5. The song is Al Hirt's "Java."

  6. How easy is that!? Love frothy coffee...
    Yeah, I guess Herb also ( I can see the album cover) and I love Smooch's face.

  10. I do a variation of this by aerating the milk in my small Magic Blender for a couple of seconds instead of shaking it in a jar, and then I put it in the microwave. I miss out on the one minute of physical activity, but the end product is the same! For those who like their coffee a bit sweet, a little sugar in the milk makes it froth even more.

    Oh how cool!!!
    I don't drink coffee, but I think I will try this for my milk tea!!!

    I didn't know the music, but I enjoyed your foamy milk making session and the walk around your lovely, beautiful house, too!
    (I thought it was so funny that Smooch was like, "What is she DOING?!" ha ha!!)

    1. Fret no longer, Carson copied it to YouTube without the music so that we can enjoy it too!

  17. The music is "Java" by Alain Toussaint, but I don't know who plays this particular version. I know it from the 1970s BBC kids art show "Vision On".

  18. I drink my coffee black, but I sure enjoyed the walk through your house! (And it is such a nice, cozy place, just great.)
    Smooch's expression seems to say: "I love her. I don't *have* to understand her."
