0 Recipe | "Peppermint Hot Chocolate" by Kayla Butts

It finally dropped below unbelievably hot yesterday, so I decided to get into the holiday spirit with some hot chocolate. I went to put a few drops of vanilla into my usual homemade hot chocolate and realized the only extract in my pantry was peppermint! Thus, came the inspiration for this simple, (almost) guilt-free holiday treat.

I love the sinful, sugary drinks of Starbucks. I could probably drink a new one every day and never find one I didn't like. However, they don't like me back. Even with skim milk and no whipped cream, those flavored lattes are so loaded with sugar my blood sugar is up and down faster than a public toilet seat.

This drink is satisfying without leaving a sugar hangover. Just for fun, I've included the nutrient analysis from the Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks and my Peppermint Hot Chocolate.

0 The World According to Bella | "Holiday Countdown"

My stocking has been hung by the chimney with care and Mrs. S is in her usual frenzy baking away. Too bad I’ve been feeling a little sick the past few days. I don't have much of an appetite to even enjoy the dropped crumbs. Perhaps I may have overdone the feasting thing out in the woods.

It all started out with my usual walk to the mailbox. I got sidetracked when several new smells filled the air. Even with snow cover I managed to dig out a buffet bonanza right along the road near my neighbor’s yard. Deer parts were everywhere. By the time we got home Mr. C was forced to make several trades with me. Lucky they still had leftover turkey which works for me. Soon after our walk we left the lake for the cities. With only 20 minutes left in the trip I started to feel real sick. I tried to let Mr. C know he should stop but it seemed like he was ignoring me. With no warning I moved up toward the front seat from the back of the van and very neatly I must say threw up in the center console, filling it up to the brim. Poor Mr. C had to clean it up. He was not happy. I went to bed. with a bad tummy ache.
