For those nights where all you want to do is crawl up inside a blanket and drink a big cup of hot chocolate.
These days should be fewer and fewer as summer is fast approaching, but it will never end for me. It`s comforting like the old teddy bear you used to clutch at night (or in my case, the stuffed penguin with a nose that has been sewed back on too many times to count because my little self could not stop chewing it off). This is my teddy bear drink.
The thing is, many people I know have this notion that milk is really bad for you. So it seems I`m drinking it less and less. One of my teachers actually sent me to the site milksucks.com and this has made me now purchase organic milk. I can`t go off milk completely, I mean..dairy..it`s a food group, right? I suppose I could buy almond or soy. I may make the change later. But for now…
