Hey there sweet people! How’s it going today? Are you all having a great weekend so far? It’s COOOLD here. Nine degrees is the high today, and boy can you feel it. Even though I love the winter I am a total wimp when it comes to the cold. So I’ve taken a very important step in making myself a little toastier and a little more like a warm, content kitten. I’ve started wearing thermal tights under my leggings and pants. This is the first year I’ve done this since I was a kid and I have to say…what the heck was the holdup? I could have been warm for all those years! All those cold walks outside. Silly, I’m just silly.
Well, never again. I refuse to go back to being chilly. 🙂
Speaking of these LONG January days, It’s a pretty exciting day up here in Minnesota because the sun doesn’t officially set until 5:00 pm. Wow! We’re starting to gain that time back. 😉 Isn’t it just sad that 5:00 pm makes me happy? I wish it was about 8:45…but what can you do?
I know what you can do. You can drink something warm and comforting. That’s right. This is my third and final post in my string of what I’ve decided to call “warm drinks to keep away the January chill.” The title needs some work, huh? 🙂 But as someone who loves being warm, I just couldn’t help but focus on warm, yummy beverages.
This drink is for all of those sweet cappuccino drinkers. Even though sweet cappuccino drinks aren’t very authentic and may not be the fanciest thing in the world, I hold a soft spot for them. I remember getting them at the gas station along with a chocolate chip cookie when I had good attendance in grade school or did really well on a test. So if you all have that sort of nostalgic feeling about them, this is definitely the mix for you. And can you believe it contains Nesquick? It’s like two childhood favorites in one. I was obsessed with Nestle’s Quick (remember when it was still called that?) when I was young. We didn’t have it very often and I used to make my milk seriously THICK. Well, this cappuccino mix has it plus a few other pantry staples. And there you go. Cappuccino forever! 🙂
