Creative Ways to Use Those Leftover Morning Beans

April 27, 2017 - By: Helene Furst

As passionate as I am about my morning java jolt, there are times when I get distracted or just too busy to finish that pot. Ok, the second pot. But, coffee is a terrible thing to waste, especially since it does have redeeming health values. Antioxidants, brain boosts and prevention of diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s…though not a cure all, there are some serious benefits. Perhaps you remember my past blog post on the amazing brown beans of my sustenance. So, leftover morning coffee…what to do with it – just a few ideas here. Don’t forget that coffee grounds are fantastic fertilizer in your garden – compost away my peeps!

911 Iced Coffee: Seems logical, but I know most of you just don’t see hot coffee gone cold as a refreshing afternoon pick me up. Store the leftovers in a glass pitcher in your fridge. Mine has cute nautical de... [Continued]

What Makes Us Special

We are all special, unique and one of a kind- embrace your wonderful self!

We are all unique and special individuals. Our individuality is what sings from our soul when we are in a room full of people and makes us stand out. What do people remember about you when you leave the party? For me, I think it’s my upbeat attitude, my unique take on the planet and my incredible knowledge of trivial boloney. I’d love to assume it’s my talent for spewing Shakespeare and other Restoration drama, or my amazing talent to sing the lyrics of any 80’s-90’s song (off the alternative list mind you) without mistakes and completely off key. Tone deaf and proud folks 😊.

OK, really, what is it about YOU and ME that makes us special? I’ve made a list. Oh yes, the list is endless, but these are my best picks. It’s sort of an inventory of y... [Continued]

Planned just right, you can revel in an early morning quiet coffee.

Mornings in my house closely resemble the lunatic asylum. It’s all about waking up, getting ready, the dog, the kids, the lunches, coffee and carpool – though not always in that order. And sometimes there are bonus surprises tossed into the mix. Basically, it’s up to me to be the drill sergeant and get everyone at the door. Luckily, I have a few tried and true tricks to make my mornings smooth and easy. Here are a few of my fave ways to help you save time, simplify the start of your day, and save your sanity, leaving you feeling less stressed and more efficient.

Lose the Snooze Button: The extra 8 minutes totally throws off my entire morning. Even with insomniastic tendencies, dragging my tired bum out of bed when the alarm goes off lets me get everything... [Continued]

Welcome to Morning Beans. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee, pull up a chair, and let's chat! I'm Helene and I am many things: writer, artist, mother, daughter, wife and friend. I write for all of us: the overworked homemaker, the executive goddesses, the poets, artists, and the wild hearted women

I believe life is about living your dreams, and sharing your story. And we all have stories. It's about being human and sometimes fallible.

Come visit often, and let my words move you, motivate you, and make you smile.

I believe in the power of words, in colorful conversations (often with strangers) and in the bright spark of friendship.

Welcome new friends.
