Thursday Treatz

SNOW DAY!!!!!

Tennessee is getting an early and rare snow day.
Good day to watch it snow and drink a cup of Hot Chocolate,
or  Hot Cocoa as we called it growing up.
Here is an easy one cup at a time recipe from the
Hershey Cocoa website.
It reminds me of the treat mom would make for us
after a day of sledding on the nearby hills.
Snow days didn't happen often in Tennessee,
so we enjoyed each one that we did get.
I have vivid memories of the cocoa in the mid-sized
saucepan simmering on the stove.
This was the time before instant packets of hot chocolate.
Marshmallows would make it an even more special treat.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • Dash salt

PODCASTS


I am new to podcasts, but I realized it is 
just like old time talk radio through a computer. 
Just go to the website, click on an episode,
press the start button and listen to the podcast!

Deck The Hallmark Podcast is one that
gives me a chuckle each time I listen. 
It reminds me of Mystery Science Theater
where the person and robot made fun of science fiction movies. 

Three gentlemen watch and give their impressions 
about Hallmark Holiday Movies--one loves them,
one likes them, and one despises them. 
Sometimes they have guests on the show. 
It is fun to hear their 'take' on each movie.
