Fall! and drinks of my childhood.

Fall is (mostly) here! I am so excited. Chilly in the morning, chilly in the evening, nice and toasty during the's heaven! I'm sitting here in one of my beloved Glimmerglass Triathlon sweatshirts, Grandma Nancy's afghan, and a mug of spiked white hot chocolate.
Look at these bad boys ready to go! Eight sweatshirts/hoodies, three lighter zip ups, sweaters....Bring it on! We'll see if I can break last year's record of not turning on the heat till mid-december
Right, so hot chocolate. I use to get really bad sore throats in middle/high school. Sometimes I would wake up at 2 in the morning and there was no way I was getting back to sleep. My mom would fix me up some special white hot chocolate to soothe my throat. Years later I would find out that she was spiking it with butterscotch schnapps! Gold Star in parenting my dear Mother Unit. Gold Star. I highly recommend it for chilly fall nights or when your children won't go back to bed.
