It snowed!! Not much, but this still counts as the first snowfall of the season lol. The weather is calling for snow flurries today and tonight so we will see if any will stick around. Of course the weather man said the temps on Friday is to be in the 60's - yea I do not like to trick or treat in the cold :)
The boys have a half day of school today and I have lots of cleaning to do.
Today is a perfect day for sitting by the fire drinking hot tea or hot cocoa. Here is a recipe for homemade hot chocolate from Cooks.com
|SARAH'S BEST HOMEMADE HOT CHOCOLATE|
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. water
1 c. milk
a bit of vanilla, if desired
Combine cocoa, sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Heat it on low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent the paste from sticking to the pan. After about 1 to 2 minutes, add milk and vanilla. Mix it all together until it reaches your preferred temperature.
