Indeed this is quite a lot of snow, but nothing we haven't managed before and yet you still see people preparing for hybernation in the grocery stores. Then again, maybe they will be laughing at me by tomorrow when I am snowed in and hungry...
I do have one thing ready to go though and it is one thing I would dread to be snowed in without. I am referring to a good cup of Hot Chocolate. I love the thought of curling up on my couch with the blizzard going full force outside while I am quite content with a steamy cup of hot cocoa.
Here is how I like mine:
First I pick out my mug:
Then I choose which kind of Hot Chocolate I want to use. I love a good Peppermint Hot Chocolate from Williams Sonoma...but as you know by now, my heart truly lies with Second Cup...which I have dutifully brought along with me from my latest trip to Toronto.
Once my drink has been fixed, (always use milk instead of water and try to us at least 2% - Homogenized being ideal, as it makes the drink creamier and complements the chocolatey deliciousness) I then get my whipped cream maker out of the cupboard, fill it halfway with whipping cream and a touch of vanilla extract..shake, shake, shake and I have the best whipped cream in town. (Yes I am that serious!)
