Happy Friday! Here are some things that got my attention this week:
It’s been really cold here.. it was 30° F when I left work before dawn yesterday morning. I know, I know, I shouldn’t complain since the rest of the country appears to be swimming in snow, but still, that’s cold for Arizona. Plus our heater decided to stop working this morning..so a nice cup of hot chocolate sounds delightful.
This Three-Chili Hot Chocolate on a Stick from Ticket Kitchen is gonna warm ya up from the inside out. Ticket Kitchen is a hot chocolate shop opened by Amber Lee of GiversLog. I was lucky enough to be one of her taste-testers before her shop opened and I can attest, this stuff is yummy! I might have to send some of these to my friends that are buried in snow.
These homemade marshmallows from Urban Comfort would go perfect on top of my hot chocolate. I really, really want to make some, but all the recipes require a stand mixer, and I just don’t have one in my cooking arsenal..yet.
I’m ready to think about warmer things, like spring.
I picked up this gardenia at Costco yesterday. Then I looked up how to care for it. I should have done that in reverse order, since it appears gardenias are hard to keep happy in Arizona. I don’t have the greenest of thumbs so it’ll be a challenge. I killed that Black Mondo Grass that I bought last year. The gardenia does smell really good, so I will do my best.
Have a great weekend kids!
