Really, can you think of anything better than a large
mug of steaming hot chocolate after an invigorating,
exhilarating afternoon indulging in sledding,
shoveling, walking, skiing, playing or working in the
Spice up instant hot chocolate mix with a 1/2 tsp of
cinnamon and a pinch of chili powder- a quick
version of a Mexican Hot Chocolate. It will warm
you up in more ways than the heat.
You can make a very fine cuppa tea in these mugs because they are microwave safe. If you don’t have a teapot or don’t have the time, use your microwave.
Let the teabag steep for just a few minutes and you’ll be able to use the teabag twice, as trick I learned from my Mom, who learned it from hers during the Great Depression. A lesson in stretching and making do that inspires me still.
Morning coffee, afternoon tea or hot chocolate and ice cold beer before dinner. These mugs can do it all.
Leave your mug in the freezer until you are ready to pour that chilled beer into it. A frosty mug of beer is good even in the winter, especially with a deep dish pizza, a company pot roast or a bowl of popcorn while watching your favorite team win.
