Good-Bye 2016 and a Surprise Ingredient for Hot Chocolate!

Many people are saying they can’t wait for 2016 to play the exit music and be gone.

We had a good year with some happy surprises along the way.

After much discussion about having the centerpiece of our holiday meal be something other than ham — we ended up putting a honey baked ham on the menu for dinner after all.

It’s tradition. Maybe we counted on our traditions a little bit more than usual this holiday season for stability and peace.

We’ll see what kind of winter we will get in the new year. We got a snow storm last winter like we hadn’t seen in years with changing snow drifts until it ended.

A big snowfall can be a chance to slow down, watch a movie or play a board game. As long as you are where you want to be, and have enough food and drink in the house, a winter storm can be fun.

The effort you have to make with the shovel when the snow stops falling is when the work begins!

Try the recipe with a surprise ingredient that has adults enjoying a mug of hot chocolate in a whole new taste experience these days. Read all about it in my latest post over in the food section at Parade this week. Find the link below.
