In Other News – 12 April 2016

Last week, Joburg had its first taste of winter this year. It wasn’t that cold, but it was cold enough to remind us how wonderful winter PJs feel and how nice it is to eat stews, curries and soups again. I found out that I still had my amazing hot chocolate (not that cheap, fake crap) hidden away in my cupboard along with some mini marshmallows. The combination of the hot, rich, creamy chocolate with the gooey sweet melting marshmallows made me far to ready to embrace winter’s return.

    In other news, apparently my boss thought I finished at 4pm when I actually finish at 4:15pm. If only I’d known, and now it’s too late.

    My wife got me some sugar free hot chocolate that tastes like divine melted chocolate. Hmm. I love it. BUT I have yet to get cold enough to have some.

    How cold is cold enough for Hot Chocolate at night? 10 degrees? 12 degrees? 16 degrees? I would venture toward 10 or 12, but that is then, basically, July only.

        yeah, but I am still in shorts then. Tracksuits pants come on at under 12 degrees. Must have tracksuit pants on, at night, to have Hot Chocolate.

    Found that “cheap” hot chocolate made with real milk instead of boiled water and dash of cream to finish it off comes close to the millionaire’s hot chocolate that only gaming journalist with their industry pay-offs can afford.

      We have also found the following:

      Half a cup of milk, half a cup of boiling water, 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder (note, this is not that cheap) and some sugar. Very, very nice. Full milk is nice too, but too much milk is not that good for my sinus’s. Only trouble is the stirring, to get the powder evenly dissolved.

        Yes proper hot cocoa. I do it once or twice a year on the stove top.
