I like popsicles too!

Today, my coffee grinder is in the dishwasher. I've grown to love it so much that I've stopped buying ground coffee. This has never been an issue up until this morning. NO ground coffee! We forgot to run the dishwasher so it was still 'dirty'. After the cold sweats stopped and I regained some composure (as much as I ever have), I started to think about what I could do. Being the man that I am, I considered saying screw it and using it dirty but I thought better. No sense spending the next week on the toilet because some raw chicken got splashed on it.
I've been known to drink water that has been sitting out for days and will rewear running pants that were soaking wet days before - but even I have my limits. I will not turn my underwear inside out and I will not use something that can possibly cause me and the toilet more than 1 day of bonding time (hellooo vodka).
The solution? Hot Cocoa!

Gosh, I forgot how good this stuff is. It has something like 250 calories per cup, all of which are sugar, but I don't care. It was warm, frothy, and I think that all of that sugar makes up for the lack of caffeine. Although, I will admit that I considered dipping a tea bag in there a few times or dropping in a few whole coffee beans to give it some sort of kick. Next time I suppose.

Hot chocolate is PERFECT this time of year. It's not so much a morning drink for me, as an evening one... bundled up in front of the TV with the snow coming down outside.

I once had a hot cocoa with a homemade marshmallow in it that was soooooo sweet it felt like each sip was 100 pieces of chocolate in my mouth!!! Not that i am complaining but it was a $4 hot cocoa i was going to finish it even if i got 10 cavities out of the deal!!!!

The top comes off and can be washed. Pretty nice actually - although it only gets washed about once a month!

Too funny!

I love coffee, but we are on break right now. I cheat with tea sometimes, but it's not the same.
