Well, the weather here is certainly “frightful” but the cocoa bar inside is so delightful! 😉 Yeah, I know a little cheesy but I couldn’t help myself. As the snow is falling yet again, I thought I would share with you some of the ways we make it through these cold months…lots of blankets and hot drinks!
Honestly, there is nothing better than a hot drink after spending time shoveling the driveway or playing in the snow. Last year I set up an area in the dining room with all the “goods” to make a perfect cup of hot chocolate and
the kids everyone loved it so much that it has become a requirement. I’m pretty sure I’ll be setting this up for many years to come.
I made my own hot chocolate mix but you can buy a large container of it at the store. Just buy lots of different toppings and put everything in clear containers with lids.
The chalkboard is just for fun! 😉
We use our Keurig and it makes a cup super fast. Just open the lid, like you are going to put a pod inside (but don’t) and close it. If you have used a coffee pod, run a cup of water first and dump it so you get clean water for the hot chocolate. A pot of hot water does the trick, too!
This time of year I also love to cook. The rest of the year I can take it or leave it, but there’s something about a warm oven and the smell of a pot of soup filling the house that makes it so cozy. Some of our family favorites are:
What are some ways you stay cozy through the winter?!?
Thanks for joining us on the home tour!
