So the Snow Was All "Whooooosh!"

And laurie_robey and I were all "shovel, shovel, shovel," but then the bulldozer/backhoe was all "whamma-whamma-scrapescrapescrape-whamma" and we were all "Woohoo!" and then the FIFTEEN FOOT TALL SNOWPLOW was all "vrooooooom, dat's right I'm bad" and laurie_robey and I were all "Holy crap!" and the snow was all "DED FROM SNOWPLOW" and the backhoe was all "You da man!" and the FIFTEEN FOOT TALL SNOWPLOW was all "Yes, this is true" and laurie_robey and I were all "Standing ovation!" but then it was like, "Oh yeah, that doesn't help the stuff on the roof, does it?" so I took the shovel and was all "pokey-pokey" and the snow on the roof was all "DOGPILE ON DA GNEECH" and I was all "Aack! Avalanche!" and my head got all wet.

It was cold.

I got hot chocolate now. 'sall good.

And my sister up in Alaska is having a heat wave...13 above!

*psst* want an old Hershey's hot cocoa recipe?

Here ya go...

For one mug:
2 tbs sugar
1 tbs cocoa powder
dash of salt
couple dashes of cayenne pepper
enough milk to fill your favorite big mug and still leave 3/4" of space at the top.

Combine sugar, cocoa power, salt and cayenne in a sauce pan. Turn the heat to medium and add the milk. You will want to continually whisk the mixture until all the lumps are gone. It will seem to take forever, but they will go away...I promise.

When the last of the lumps are gone, turn the heat to medium-high and heat until the hot cocoa just starts to bubble. Remove from heat and enjoy! You can add marshmallows, whipped cream, whatever... Serve hot!

Some notes: you don't have to include the cayenne pepper, but it intensifies the taste of the cocoa. I wouldn't leave out the salt. Some people may not like this as it has a bitter edge to the taste. This comes from using processed cocoa instead of syrup. Personally, I prefer the taste over the exceedingly sweet cocoa served at many places.

To make more, just keep the 2:1 ratio. Need to make two mugs? Four tbs. sugar to two tbs. cocoa and enough milk for two mugs. Too sweet? Leave out a little of the sugar. The recipe is made to be adjusted and played with.

I have not yet tried this with artificial sweeteners.

I've heard a lot of recipes using cocoa/chocolate and various hot peppers lately; it's not something I'm likely to try, as I run screaming from anything remotely spicy, but as you say, it's meant to be played with.

Thank you. ^.^

And the icicles all sang in high pitched Anime harmony... and it was good.

Well... good enough.

You're lucky! When the snow was all whoosh here, the snowplow would come by all "whumawhumawhuma," and I'd be all "%#$%*&$%&$*$##%*#" and make faces like =x.x=* because I'd just dug the driveway out, and now the snow is no longer snow but packed ice blocks in the place where the driveway had just been.

Among other things, that's why I don't shovel the driveway 'til the plow's gone by...

haha! I went outside with a broadsword and was all Hack! slash! at the icicles and they went all "oh noes!" and shattered with each blow!
