Cocoa Cocolicious

Yummmm… I had hot cocoa for breakfast! Of course with lots of mini marshmallows!  Otherwise, legally I don’t think it can be called hot cocoa!  It has to be called “Hot cocoa-like beverage”.  Am I right?

Hot Cocoa Done Right!

In one of my favorite mugs:

purple grape mug

Wonder why it’s one of my favorites?? Hmmmmm 😉

Don’t worry , Mama!  I had oatmeal too.

Key Word There- HAD Oatmeal!

And like Goldilocks, I ate it all up!!

Hearty, hot, healthy way to start the day.

(Since I couldn’t alliterate that whole sentence, I settled for rhyming.  A poor second choice, but ah well.)

 

Was this considered cooking, since I used a kitchen appliance???

the “c” word

Yes I did the “C” word. It’s so awful I don’t even want to tell you what it is.

Oh ok. Cook. Happy now?

I was hungry. No more cereal or instant oatmeal. No frozen waffles etc. What was I to do?  I had to make a decision to get over myself, my laziness, and be a grown up.  It was agony.

How stupid would it be if Brother or Sweet friend came over, and found me dead from starvation, 3 feet away from a kitchen full of food??  Even if it WAS raw food that needed to be cooked??

So… here’s proof:

20150418_13503420150418_135025The pictures cannot lie.  I cooked, in real life!

Good thing I’m into all this homemaking stuff.

I knew where everything was!  AND how to turn on the stove!  And I didn’t set off the fire alarm!!

(I was barefoot, and in the kitchen, but….. haha, you won’t catch me the 3rd thing!!)

All in all, I call it a success.
