Real Mothers don't eat quiche;
they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils
Are probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors,
Filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough
doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what
The vacuum just sucked up...
Real Mothers sometimes ask, 'Why me?'
And get their answer with a little
Voice that says, 'Because I love you best...'
Happy Mothers Day!
Moms, treat yourself to some decadent Italian Hot Chocolate today - you deserve it.
I made this today as requested by my son:
Italian Hot Chocolate or Cioccolata Calda
From the recipe at Bell'alimento
100g good quality chocolate with 70% cocoa or higher, roughly chopped
1.5 cups whole milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
Heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat till bubbles form on the sides. Add in the sugar at this point and stir until dissolved.
In a small cup, mix the cornstarch with a few tablespoons of the warm milk and return the mixture to the saucepan, stirring for 2-3 minutes till the milk thickens a little.
Turn heat to low & add in the chopped chocolate. Stir, remove from heat and continue to stir until the chocolate is dissolved.
Pour into cups and consume immediately.
