More choclatey goodness and the strawberry patch.

So, in the name of perfectionism I have been furthering my hot chocolate quest. Today was the Best By Far. Slightly more complicated that the recipe before, but not much.

Hot Chocolate the French Way
Makes 2 servings

1 ½ cups milk
2 ½ Tbsp. water
2 ½ Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 oz. dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
2oz. milk chocolate (best you can get)
Put the milk in a saucepan and add water, and sugar.
Place over medium heat and stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved.
Bring to a boil.
Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the chocolate.
Then blend the mixture for about a minute.

Serve immediately
This tastes amazing, just like the Chocolat chaud you get in France. Its incredibly rich, I can only make it through one cup at a time (I KNOW). And a more traditional version wouldn't have any milk chocolate in it.

Spectacular path I built so that there is some form of lighting up to the front door.
And this is the strawberry patch. Yes. Also spectacular. I agree.
Postman: What yer doin?
Me: Planting a strawberry patch.
Postman: Great. Your husband is a lucky man. I wish I had a wife like you.
Me: Trust me. You don't.
