OT - Throwback Thursday
Happy Thursday, STalkers! We're one day closer to the weekend. We're expecting a "snow squall" tomorrow and I am SO looking forward to it! Temps ranging from the teens to 32 means Aniki is a happy Finn!
Playing outside in the cold definitely means I'll need a hot beverage. If we're going to be out for awhile, we take a thermos. Otherwise, we tromp back into the house, strip off our wet clothes, put on something warm and fuzzy, and brew up some warmth.
When I was a kid, there was nothing like a big ol' mug hot chocolate to warm up my insides. Mom made it from scratch (no mixes for her!) in a copper-bottom pot on the stove. Oh my, the SMELL of that chocolatey goodness wafting around the kitchen while she wielded that wooden spoon 'round and 'round the pot. FINALLY, it was ready and she poured it into mugs (how she managed to NEVER spill a drop is beyond me!) and topped it with mini marshmallows.
I always pushed my marshmallows down into that steaming deliciousness, get them all wet, then sip around them while they got all melty and oozy. Mmmmmmm......
Hey, Hot Chocolate lovers!
- Milk chocolate or dark
- Plain or flavored (cinnamon, peppermint, vanilla, raspberry)
- Marshmallows (mini or regular) or marshmallow creme
I'm a dark chocolate, mini marshmallow kind of gal. On rare occasion, I will spike it with some Rumple Minze (peppermint liquor).
