Surviving Snow Days

Dear Mom,
Today is ANOTHER snow day. The girls made their valentine's day cards.
The teenager made chocolate chip cookies.
I made coffee liqueur. And drank it.
Coffee Liqueur
2 cups water
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 Tbsp. freshly ground coffee
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups vodka (let's face it; I used the entire bottle!)
Mix everything except vodka in a saucepan and heat to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely. Strain out the coffee grounds. Add vodka. Pour finished liqueur into a bottle and store in a cool place.

Love, Wendy
