I mentioned yesterday that Marc loves choc mint, his favourite ice cream is mint choc chip, he also loves mocha’s so when I was thinking about with drink to share with you this week, this frappe was the obvious choice.
It has a coffee hit but the mint chip ice cream makes it very refreshing, I knew Marc would love this but I was suprised by how much I loved it as well.
Sometimes choc mint can be overwhelming, you know if the mint to really strong and it can be to much for some people, I am one of those people. This frappe is not at all like that. Don’t get me wrong the mint is there in abundance but you still taste the chocolate and coffee.
This is Marc’s new favourite drink, maybe i should make a spiked version to go with brunch this weekend…..
We are still undecided on plans for most of tomorrow, but I am not working at all tomorrow, YAY! I have not had a day with no work in over 2 months, no rest for the wicked, HA!
Marc wants to go get a beard trim and a haircut, he is very particular about his beard and it still surprises me the effort he puts into it. He is a proud bearded man 🙂
He did trick me into the whole him having a beard thing. He had a moustache for a longtime which i really liked and we were out for dinner with my Mum for her birthday in December 2 years ago and he saw a couple of guys with beards and said I want to grow a beard. I pulled a face, because a beard? I thought it would look weird.
To which he followedup with i will grow it until my birthday and shave it off so no beard for the wedding. Of course I agreed, but it was all part of his plan. He had no intention of shaving it off for the wedding, and if i’m honest I really like his beard, without it he looks super young. Having a beard really suits him.
