Today’s assignment – hot cocoa – is something I almost never have, although the Black Friday rugby that I blogged about did feature hot cocoa at the half to fortify us (and yes, it does taste even better with rum, as we discovered). Fr. Peck does say that hot drinks like cocoa help get us psyched up for Christmas, and he is right – I just prefer tea 🙂
Christmas in New England – you never know what the weather will be like. This year it is looking like it will be “warm” – 50 degrees – with lots of rain. This should be interesting, but at least it won’t keep people away from church. And I will still drink my usual cold weather drink – a mix of green tea and nettle tea (organic, of course), steeped for exactly three minutes. Try it – you will not regret it.
