i cleaned. i cooked. i reorganized. i crafted. i painted and hung stuff. i sewed.
looking back, it was pretty awesome. i was really hoping to go somewhere & do something, you know- for holiday bragging rights- but a weekend around the house was much needed. despite all the time spent on projects, i still managed to make time for bubble baths, movies, long convos with a., a birthday brunch and my all time favorite treat every night: hot cocoa.
i will share most of my weekend projects with you this week. but for now, i will leave you with this- the yummiest (and easiest) hot cocoa recipe.
makes 1 cup
really, really good chocolate
place chocolate in the bottom of a microwave-safe mug (i use about a handful of bittersweet chocolate chips). microwave until melted (about 2 minutes).
add milk directly into mug. microwave until milk is hot (about 3-4 minutes), stirring frequently. use caution when microwaving milk- when it get's too hot it will boil over the mug and make a mess of your microwave.
add a dash (or two) of cinnamon to the hot cocoa. enjoy with caution- it's dangerously good- and you'll never drink the powdered stuff again.
i hope you had an enjoyable weekend as well. here's to getting things done and a four day work week!
