today the human backhoe son joined the human backhoe daddy in a bit of axe-ing.
don't they look just a little too joyful hanging out with the axe? think i'll head back inside and put 911 on speed dial....
thankfully, it looks like the little one is just helping stack.
ok........when i start to see wood being flung across the driveway....
mean mom ends the fun and invites eric to come inside for some of this....
A Mug of Hot Cocoa......
oh and couple of eggnog truffles too.
My recipe for hot cocoa begins by combining cocoa powder, sugar, and enough milk or cream to make a smooth paste. Hot milk is then poured in and stirred until it is thoroughly blended. I like to make bigger batches of hot cocoa in my guardian service cookware pot, that i found at goodwill for 99 cents. the cookware is just like what my grandmother used to cook with. it reminds me of her. i love that about the pot. We like to add a plop of homemade whipped cream on top. Delicious.
Here's how to make one serving........ Hot Cocoa Recipe:
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
2 tablespoons of cream or milk
Place the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until it is nice and hot.
Meanwhile in your mug, make a paste with the cocoa powder, sugar, and cream. Pour the hot milk into the cocoa paste and whisk/stir until combined and smooth.
the hot cocoa connoisseur takes a sip.......
looks like eric is giving his approval to this little feast of sugar.....
and finally a little upclose pic of the truffles just for my friend, rural, in missouri....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......drool.
ps....the recipe for these joyful little things are a few posts back.
