We started with a fun game of soccer/basketball, which is where we kick the ball around until we get close to the hoop and then throw it at the hoop until we make a point. Then, because it was like 30 degrees outside, we proceeded inside for a nice cup of homemade hot chocolate (recipe at bottom). Lastly we ended with a nice Thomas the train movie and some yummy popcorn.
Although all these fun things won't make up for the lack of daddy, it at least keeps their mind off of it. As for me I have nice bowl of frozen leftover tomato soup and a sappy romance movie planned for the evening. Sometimes it nice to have some alone time. But I'm totally not looking forward to the massive amount of alone time coming my way due to a large snow storm coming to Atlanta! AHH! I extremely dislike snow with a passion! (I've had to ban the word hate due to Enzo's excessive use of it. Bad Mommy!)
Does anyone like the snow and/or winter weather?
2 oz of dark chocolate chips (I like Ghirardelli)
1/4 cup cocoa powder (dutch if possible)
3 tbsp turbinado sugar or stevia
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 cups of milk (low-fat or skim)
1. Put cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and a splash of the milk into a pan, mix until it makes a paste.
2. Then whisk in remaining milk
3. Put it over some heat until boiling
4. Then add 1 oz chocolate to cup and pour half the milk over, stir until all chocolate is melted
5. Repeat with 2nd cup
If you are feeling indulgent you can add some whipped cream and if your lazy as well publix whipped cream in a can is delicious!
