Tonight, after supper, which was (thankfully) NOT turkey, I made Brent’s homemade hot chocolate (with a nod to uber goddess, Nigella Lawson). But first dinner.
I simply couldn’t face another meat-like dinner … so it was light (or is that lite?) fare for me. A simple salad with roasted peppers and pan-fried shrimps. OMG, heavenly.
Then it was onto the chocolate. You’ll need to grab the following:
- cane sugar; and,
- chocolate (now, I know some folks use cocoa for this but I gleefully cheat and use Lindt‘s 85% cocoa).
1) gather your ingredients and a whisk and small pot
2) add milk, cinnamom and a tsp of sugar and get the milk warming; 3) add tsp of honey; then 4) when it’s steaming add a square of chocolate
5) whisk the devil out of it, and 6) pour and enjoy!
But, damn, where were those mini marshmallows? …
that sounds like itd be really really good chocolateand the shrimp salad looked goodbtw Christine said thank you =]
oh.. yum! that salad looks exquisite!! i feel so gross after days of gorging on meats too. oh – i’ve tried using lindt chocolate too when making hot chocolate, but do you find there’s a thick layer of fat which surfaces on top of the hot chocolate? i always have this problem. re: friday, i’d love to see u. i need to figure out if i have to babysit my niece first. if not, i’m yours!
That salad is to die for – I would enjoy that anytime. The hot chocolate might kill my stomach but it looks great. Can I hire you to cater?
