I'm editing this post because I just received an email from Diane at Crafty Passions to let me know I have won her giveaway. I am so happy!! I'll be posting more when I receive the package and show it off!! Thank you thank you!!
I also forgot to tag anyone for my tag below. I try to pick different bloggers each time and I'm so excited I can't think so I'll leave it up to you. Please tell us 7 things that make you happy or sad or laugh.We didn't get up to snow this morning and I guess that was a good thing. I was a little disappointed though. It's been so warm it would have just stayed on the grassy areas. It has been cool and rainy all weekend. Definitely sweatshirt weather. I had a lot of errands to run yesterday and I had on my sweats and down vest and was quite comfortable. It is definitely hot chocolate weather. I used to make this a lot when my kids were young. They remember coming home from school and having hot chocolate. When I decided to make some for this winter I didn't remember how so I searched and found these two recipes. I'm not sure which I used though..maybe both!!
I also decided that is was down comforter time so when I was changing my bedding I put it on. I slept warm and cozy last night. As you can see Bailey likes it too!!
Hot Chocolate #1
10 2/3 cups instant nonfat powdered milk
6 oz jar powdered nondairy creamer
4 cups powdered sugar
2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir gently to mix well. Store in an airtight container in a cool dark place. Makes 17 cups of mix.
For one serving, stir 3 T Mix with 1 cup of hot water until dissolved. Or for a richer hot chocolate use hot milk.
Hot Chocolate #2
1 8 quart box of dry powdered milk
2 lb box of Nestle' Quick
6 oz jar of coffee mate powder
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Mix all ingredients together in a large container. Use 1/3 cup of mix to 1 cup of boiling water. Makes about 28 cups of hot chocolate.
I've also been tagged by Deb at Garage Sale Gal. I'm supposed to list 7 things about me that are funny or unusual or whatever. I think that since I've had kind of a sad week I'll do happy things.
1. My kids, grandson and friends
2. When I come home from work and Anna and Bailey run to meet me at the door.
3. Spending time in my kitchen (I bet that's a surprise)
4. Going for a walk
5. I cry while reading a book, watching a movie or even a commercial on TV and not necessarily sad...could just be something sappy
6. A physical therapist who told me that I was doing all the wrong exercises and showed me new ones that are actually helping my back.
7. And last but certainly not least all of you out there
