    Yum! @Baymule scrambled eggs sound good to me! :drool That’s what we are going to have here too.

    I’m still a little sore and DD2 keeps talking about us falling and mentioning her “boo boo.” We will both be just fine though.

    I need a new coffee maker. I’ve run vinegar through mine several times and it is still sssllloooowwwww!!! DH and I talked about a Keurig but I think we are going with a regular coffee maker. I don’t need individual cups to wash that are refillable. I’ve also heard that the hot chocolate clogs up the needle when run through the Keurig. Saving money in the process sounds even better!

    I think the best use for a Kuerig at home is the ability to have lots of different flavors of coffee. If everyone in the house that drinks coffee drinks "unflavored" coffee, it is an expensive cup o' Joe. And the machines are really expensive, regular drip pots are pretty darn cheap.

    @Wehner Homestead this is the one we have. Can brew single cup or a pot. It comes with a reusable filter for the single cup. I love it!

    I normally use the single cup side for coffee and the pot for making tea. I make pitchers of tea to put in the fridge for DH.

    One of the very last discussions my brother and I had the week he died, as I was making us each a cup of morning coffee, was about the Kuerig he had. We both agreed that
    "A dang coffee maker isn't supposed to make that gear whirring squeaking noise like some old snack vending machine..supposed to be 'bumb bumb bumb bumb bump' percolation sound like the old coffee commercial"

    Looks like the single side is shaped for travel mugs.
