Dutch cocoa

It's such a cold and miserable day. I decided I needed something sweeter than my usual latte (grande, non-fat, no foam latte is my usual), but not too sweet. I knew a had a can of Ghirardelli cocoa, but for the life of me I couldn't find it. But I did have a can of unsweetened dutch cocoa (the powdered kind). I used 2 teaspoons of raw sugar and 2 teaspoons of cocoa, filled a super large cup to about an inch of the rim with milk, and put the steamer stem into the cup and steamed it to 160 degrees. To die for cocoa!!! Quick, easy, and exactly what I was wanting. Aaaahhhhhhh.

Oatmeal

I made the Alton recipe for oatmeal last night for breakfast this morning. I knew Big Daddy would love it (it wasn't "num;" it was "nummola!"). Personally, I guess I'm just a Cream of Wheat girl because it wasn't that great for me. But I'll keep making it at night in the crockpot just for him because he loves it. :O)
