It's supposed to snow this afternoon, how great of Mother Nature to help us celebrate Rudolph Day! We're only supposed to get 1-3 inches, just enough to make traveling home from work a bit tricky. But, the temps have been cold enough this week so that it should last until Saturday when I can enjoy it!
What's better on a cold snowy day than something to warm your innards? So I'm thinking a cup of hot cocoa with all the fixin's. Although I'm not sure about it for me. That's a lot of milk products and I've been sick this week with a head cold.
I typically make hot cocoa by pouring boiling half and half or heavy cream over chocolate buds or wafers. It's so simple to make and such a decadent treat. It's even nice to add a splash of peppermint schnapps (for the adults only of course).
I'll be celebrating Rudolph Day throughout the weekend and have a short list of things that I want to accomplish...
- I'm going to update my Christmas Card list by adding all the new/change of addresses from the Christmas cards that we received this year.
- I'm also going to go through my Christmas Magic and organize all the new ideas that I've torn out of holiday mags. I'll separate by category (cooking/baking, decorating, gift giving, etc.)
- I may also sneak in a Christmas movie this weekend while I'm in my studio creating wonderfully, romantic things for Valentine's Day!
What are your plans for today or the weekend?
