the daily un-commute – 12.23.11

my front porch - cheboygan county, mi


Today’s commute was very hecktic! I put my boots on with my robe and took this picture on my front porch! We are finally getting a dusting of snow just in time for Christmas, it’s not the 12+ inches we typically have by now BUT we’ll take it!!!

I apologize for not getting a week 22 maternity monday photo up….this week has been busy with family parties and work parties and a nasty head / chest cold in our house – So I gave myself a bye-week. I figure if the Lion’s can do it than so can I right? Neverfear Maternity Monday will be back after Christmas!

Also….I wanted to post a recipe here for some INCREDIBLE homemade powdered Hot Chocolate! It is devine!!! It is also a secret family recipe, but not my familys’ and since I don’t keep secrets I thought I would share it here with all of you (and that way when I lose the recipe card again I’ll have it here for reference!) It makes enough for an army so be prepared and enjoy!

Diane’s Hot Chocolate Mix:

-8qt. Box Dry Instant Milk

-1 lb Box Chocolate Milk Mix

-1 lb Powder Sugar

-22oz Coffee Creamer

-2-3 Tbl Hershey’s Cocoa

Mix it in a very large container – When ready to enjoy, fill cups 1/2 full (yes you read that right HALF full) with mix and add hot water!
