Good morning from the winter wonderland, aka Iowa!
I woke up to the most gentle of falling snow, and instead of pouting, I made hot chocolate!
Apparently I hoard random packets of hot chocolate and tea…? I found this big bag in my cupboards earlier this week when I was searching for cupcake liners.
I rummaged around and found a no sugar added packet, mixed it with water, and topped with some of my very favorite things…
Mini marshmallows! Is there anything more heartwarming?
Served in my new Starbucks mug from Canada. Thanks again Becca!
I paired my steaming mug of hot chocolate with two old friends. Raspberry preserves and almond butter…
And smeared them on a toasted thin bun.
First attempt. Toaster fail.
Ahh, there we go.
Another thing I love about these thin buns is that they stay nice and chewy even when toasted. You’d think they’d get super dry and hard since they’re so thin. But, nope, they’re all good!
Perfect way to start my Sunday a.m.
Ben and I are heading over to my parent’s house for our traditional Sunday afternoon lunch, then I’m making some dishes to take over to a friends’ house for a Super Bowl party. Are you ready for some football?!
What’s your favorite way to spend a cold, winter day?
