I know you’re all going to laugh at me (I would, too, if I lived somewhere else right now), but it has been quite chilly here in San Diego lately. I swear! Anyway, it’s been good hot chocolate weather…so thought I would share my two most favorite hot chocolates with you.
First, Williams-Sonoma has the best hot chocolate. You’ll see in the picture that right now I have the peppermint, which is good, but I think the plain is even better. Why is this stuff better? Because it’s hot CHOCOLATE, not COCOA. The only way to go is to actually have chocolate shavings melted in your milk, not powdery cocoa stuff. SO GOOD.
Second, Mexican hot chocolate. Right now I have Ibarra, but Abuelita is great as well. This hot chocolate comes in blocks that you melt in the milk (again, so much better than cocoa)…and the flavor can’t be beat!
Today Cate had her first hot chocolate. She was SO excited and loved every drop. It was really fun sitting there drinking it with her. Today was the last day of just “Mom & Cate”…my mom gets here tomorrow AND…it’s official, we go to the hospital Saturday night to have the baby! That’s right, even with crazy amounts of contractions for 10 days now, no dilation and no baby arrival in sight. Unbelievable. Anyway, Cate and I had a great day together, topped off with hot chocolate and reading books. Life is good.
