Is it normal to be torn between opposing sentiments? After holidaying for a week (albeit at home and apart from a couple of trips to Toronto, nowhere truly exotic), tomorrow I return to my desk.
Yes, I like what I do and have a wonderful boss, but returning to "work clothes" and a daily routine--one that has me fighting my natural urges to cocoon in my linens and blankets...
How best to enjoy this last vacation day? After a day in Toronto, and battling the roads and the weather, this is my choice:
Hot Chocolate for one
1 cup of rich milk (one part half-and-half to three parts milk)
a squeeze of honey (about a teaspoon's worth)
a good pinch of chilli pepper
1 35g bar of semisweet chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
as much whipped cream as you want
Heat up everything except the whipped cream, making sure the chocolate is well melted. Pour into your favourite mug. Top with whipped cream.
Do you really need anything more?
