Yeah Hot Cocoa

Scott and Cara enjoying the hot cocoa.

When Scott's family visited a week ago he asked if I could make hot cocoa for breakfast one day. This is something that my mother made for me and my children and I on occasion would serve it too. I don't quite have the magic touch that my mom did as her cocoa was by far much better than mine. Still it wasn't too bad though. After the hot cocoa is made the next item on the menu is toast with peanut butter spread on it. Best for last and that is to start dunking the toast into the cocoa and eating. Yummy, better than peanut butter cups. This was the first time I made cocoa for Cara and she joined right in on the tasty breakfast.

Tasting pretty good!
Yes, she likes it.

Yeah hot chocolate and grandma!! We will have to do this when Cara's Aunt Cyndi visits us next time.

Emily also enjoyed the tasty breakfast, I took a photo of the three of them but it didn't turn out.

This receipe is especially enjoyable on a snowy day.

Hmmmmm. You just made hungry for chocolate and peanut butter. I don't have any cocoa in the house, though.

Cara sure does look like she's enjoying it!

And speaking of peanut butter cups.... a happy box arrived on my door step today! Thank you! Now if only I had some of your hot chocolate. Would it make you jealous if I told you that I went to the Jazz Bar in Bologna and had a cup of their hot chocolate? I didn't, but would it make you jealous?

Looking forward to your hot chocolate... maybe in March?

Got your cute Christmas card in morning mail. Tom and I are glad to know Cara and you both are doing well and still enjoying every moment - they just grow FAR too fast. Think of you often but am (apparently) without a current email. (Am glad poor brain remembered "Loch Mess"...) If you have a moment, get in touch. And, have an absolutely WONDERFUL Christmas!! Cousin Jamie (and Tom, too)
