It has been extremely cold here . I am a little under the weather with a RA flare and a sinus headache that won't seem to go away. Every time I try to read or do some writing, my head starts throbbing. :(
Since it is so cold and I'm feeling blah, and the kitties are sleeping and not doing anything entertaining to photograph, I thought I would post a hot cocoa recipe. I found those mugs online. I did not order them, though I would like to. My husband doesn't like to use the credit card over the internet so I don't think I will. *sigh* They are cute and very true.
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup half and half cream is optinional
Combine cocoa, sugar, and pinch salt in sauce pan. Blend in boiling water and bring mixture to an easy boil while stirring. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes and watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide into 4 mugs.
Add cream to mugs of cocoa to cool down if desired, or give cream to your cats. ^,^ (unless your cat is lactose intolerant like Billie)
Well, I'm going to take a hot shower and some meds now. I hope to post some new pics soon, if the kitties stop acting like lumps and actually do something. ;)
