YUM! (and i finally took down the christmas stuff on my mantle, hurray for cleaning!)
...

I can't believe you know how to make your own hot chocolate! Does Georgia Chamberlin know this about you? She would be proud, that is for sure!

Thanks for sharing the recipe, I have a #10 can of powdered milk in my pantry. Now I know what to do with it!

Nothing beats a new issue of "Real Simple", a fire and some hot c. When you see me next time, ask me about when "Real Simple" called me but never put me in their magazine. Jerks.
