we started with this bottle of amazing:
add to hot chocolate or a mocha, and you have YUM. i've had one every day for the last week. it just makes me feel warm and cozy inside.
then, we added some to some homemade ice cream, courtesy of my friend Amy. topped with a toasted marshmallow, perfection.
on a non-food-related note, i recently heard the best Christmas album you will soon be able to buy. Smalltown Poets just finished their Christmas record, and it really is amazing. (and i'm not just saying that because they're my bosses and i have to) =) this was my view while listening to the masters as soon as they arrived in the mail. when i know exact release dates, i will pass them along. you definitely are going to want this to make your season merry and bright.
that's all for this friday night! i leave you with this little bit of sweetness. my puppy fell asleep on my foot, and it was so cute, i had to sneak a picture. she usually jumps up when she sees the camera pointed at her, but i managed to get one before she noticed. isn't she precious?
