Last week we talked about the Stress of the Holidays, and I told you how I'm having a Stress Free Holiday.
After such a deep and though provoking topic, I wanted to lighten things up a bit. So this week curious minds want to know
Hot Cocoa or Apple Cider?
I know right?! What a conundrum you face when the choice is placed in front of you. There they are staring you in the face...a packet of Hot Cocoa with mini marshmallows, or that wonderfully harvest taste of hot apple cider!
Which do you choose? How can you choose? You definitely can't have both. Cocoa and Cider do not mix (hmmm, though that does give me an experiment to try later).
The answer is simple. Two mugs. But now what? Do you start with the cocoa or the cider? It's like we're back to square one.
I love both these drinks, especially this time of year. Could you tell?
I think they are for separate moods though. When I think Hot Cocoa, I'm snuggling under a blanket, my kids are snuggled up next to me, and we all have a steaming mug with a favorite story being read. It's cozy, it's warm, and definitely a good sleep aid. So I guess if it's night time, I'd prefer Hot Cocoa.
Apple Cider. Oh what do I say about you! When we took a trip in my 1st grade class to the Apple Orchard, and they let us try you so fresh from the apples, I was hooked. You've been my friend ever since. Store bought, Big Name Label "Apple Cider" just isn't you. You're my Adult drink; my sophisticated feeling, harvest loving, tree hugger, fashionable drink. To change a catchy tune to fit me and you "The best part of waking up, is Apple Cider in my cup".
Admittedly, I do drink the powdered stuff, and enjoy it. When I can get the real stuff straight from the orchards though, that is good. A nice warm cup of apple cider wakes my taste buds and my senses up, and just warms me throughout the day.
