Salted Caramel Mocha ….need I say more? (Snowed in Saturday Night Drink)


This is my favorite way to drink a hot cocoa

there simply is nothing better.

Of course I stole the idea from starbucks

in the hey days of Tastebuds…

this was a best seller

and every saturday night…

I would make literally 100′s of them.

I miss those days behind the counter….

But tonight after a day of being snowed in

stuck inside playing endless rounds of “doll” & “kitchen”

as I tried to read a new book in-between eating my  ”chicken with eggs” & feeding my “baby”

all I crave is a quiet Saturday night

catching up on all the writing that I have pushed off last week…

curled up in front of my computer …

with a Huge cup of this Salted Carmel Mocha with extra extra whip!

The other day I found this at target….

Here is to a Productive Saturday Night!
