when you just feel like not getting up in the morning because the night has been just too short
when you feel like you could stay in the shower for one hour and a half because that is the next best thing to being to bed (that is until there is no more hot water in the tank…)
when you just feel like curling in your living room all day in a rocking chair, knitting in hand, and not have to worry about anything else
when you would much rather just get hooked in a good book instead of having to put coat and boots to go shoveling the latest 15 cm of snow (!!!)
Where the only thing that would brighten this day is this:
still fuming right off the stove
Today is a day like this
Receipe to a day like this
thick cream (10 or 15%)
vanilla bean split lenghtwise
Chili infused dark chocolate
Dark 80% or more chocolate
honey to taste
Put cinnamon stick and vanilla bean in a saucepan.
Cover with milk and some cream (to make it thick, so go to taste.)
heat on low.
When about to boil, add chocolate by small pieces so they will melt, and stir
Add as much chocolate you want, I usually add 3/4 of a chocolate pack
Serve while hot on a day like this.
