WOO HOO We are feeling better

Mitchell has been very sick for the last week.  He's still feeling the remnants of it but doing so much better.  After talking to other moms at his preschool it seems to be going around but he had it pretty bad.  I have not been sleeping all that much and last night was another one of those nights.  But my wonderful husband sent me to bed this afternoon and i got a couple hours of sleep. 

I finally got my Crafting area organized almost all the way. This means I can finish the few  many projects I have wanted to work on the last month and just no where to do them. The first thing to finish is Mitchell's Halloween costume and I am going to work on that today since there are things going on tomorrow he needs it for.. just in time.  Joey picked up a small rolling cart to store all my goodies on and also a lamp with a mega bright light. I love it! Those were the 2 main issues in the cave. 

Ok so on to the long overdue hot cocoa mix recipe: 

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process preferred)
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Hot water 

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and incorporate evenly. Fill your mug one third full with the mixture and pour in half hot water. Stir stir well. Fill the rest with hot water.  Or just put the mix in your mug, fill with 1/2 hot water, stir, fill the rest of the way and nuke. then add marshmallows!! 
Seal the rest in an airtight container.  We use old sketti sauce jars and the like. You could also put them in mason jars with fancyfied  lids and a tag and a few marshmallows in a bag on the side for gifts. We LOVE this mix and won't buy hot cocoa mix from the grocery gettin place again!
