January Rudy

Well Saturday marked the first Rudy Day for 2014.  However for some reason I had it in my head that Sunday was the 25th, not Saturday. LOL

A day late I celebrated Rudy Day by watching the movie of the month suggested by the great people over at Magical Holiday Home.  This months movie is Christmas With the Kranks.  I love this movie.  It is so funny and heart-warming.

Also in celebration of the first Rudy Day, I made homemade hot chocolate.  I love hot chocolate and when I went into the kitchen for a pack of my favorite Swiss Miss, the box was empty.  So I went on the internet and found a simple and easy recipe to make it.

12 ounces evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups hot water
1/4-1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 dash salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

I searched for a recipe using evaporated milk because I was all out of regular milk.  I found it strange and was a little scared to use the salt because I thought it would taste salty.  However I was wrong, though I used very little.

Mmm, mmm, good.  Just wish I had marshmallows to go on top. (Should have taken a photo) I will definately make this again.

For the full recipe you can fine it at Food.com

And for more ideas/tips I'm going over to Organzied Christmas and follow the Rudolph Club Meeting for the month.
