C is for Cats and Chocolate
Well this one of my furry babies- Rosie. She's not actually a baby. She's 11 years old. I refer to her a "Momma" because she's old enough to be my mom in cat years. She's very laid back, and happy go lucky except when you pick her up. Then all hell breaks loose. She absolutely hates being picked up. No matter what! I don't know why. I've picked her up since she was a kitten! Is that normal for cats?
But on the plus side, she has definitely mellowed out and become more affectionate with age. She loves her belly rubbed! She always has a smile and a meow for me when I come home-no matter what kind of day I've had.
Now on to one of my most favorite things ever CHOCOLATE!
I am a chocoholic. Espeically when it comes to dark chocolate. Here's one of my favorite chocolate recipies. I espeically love to drink this during our hot Texas summers!
Frozen Hot Chocolate
- 6 ounces of chocolate chips ( you can use high quality dark choc. like he suggest, it would be even better)
- 1/2 cup of 1/2 and 1/2 ( I used 1/4 cup cream and 1/4 cup milk because that is what I had)
- 3 cups of ice
Melt chocolate in 1/2 and 1/2. Be sure not to boil. I did this in the microwave, but you have to watch it closely if you do it that way. And stir every 30 seconds or so. Once melted place in blender with ice. Blend until desired consistency. Mine had some very small ice chunks in it. We liked it like that. It was not smooth like a milkshake.
