Make some hot cocoa!

(Original recipe makes 4 servings)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1/3 cup boiling water

  • 3 1/2 cups milk

  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn’t scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.  Enjoy!
Get a blanket and a good book.  :)  (Or the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who)
Be happy~~~

2: A Few Bits Of Background Before This Story Continues…

Hi!  It’s me again, back with another chapter.  I hoped you liked the last one.  :)

 

2 : a few bits of background before this story continues…

 

Nearing fall, the community was abundantly full of the products of the harvest. A year’s nonstop and incessant care and tending was paying off.  The village was basically beautiful hamlets over carefully tended fields surrounded by Jungle.  Overall, the feeling was wonderfully opulentSave the dreary air about the peoples of this perfect village. What was there to be afraid of or even sad about at a time like this? What could possibly be the matter at all?  Nobody talked about them…  The ravenous, somber, beasts that inhabited the darkest and most inscrutable parts of the myriad of trees stretching out from all sides of the majestic mountains. Those flitting beasts that you didn’t see. That you didn’t hear. That you only felt. At their most benign, they were ostentatious little creatures, who would pinch horrible little pinches, and made objects so displaced that it would be an eccentric waste of time and energy to retrieve them. They took away everything that was not needed. Everything.. Everyone, too. They used everything that was not put to use by they’re surroundings. One might be horrified by such an atrocity, but they were a part of life for the people of the Jungle.

By the way, the words in bold are spelling words that I’m sneaking into my posts.  :P

Agatha Christie = Awesome

One of the most brilliantest wonderfulest awesomest mystery writers of all time.  So awesome, I don’t know… Just incredibly awesome.  So awesome that she said this:

The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes. – Agatha Christie   ^-^

I’m almost done with Murder On the Orient Express, and I have a few ideas who the killer is…  Mrs. Green In The Library With The Rope!  lol

Well, bye!
