The One Where I Spill The Secret

For years I have been making a really mean cup 'o cocoa and fooling everyone (EVERYONE) that there is a top secret ingredient in it. I won't let anyone be in the kitchen when I am making my cocoa. My husband, my sister, all of our family and friends who pop in as company...love my cocoa (and I do have a recipe but it's nothing all that special). I've had people guess "It's peppermint!" "It's nutmeg!" But I always just brush them off.

Here is the big secret, made with Libby Weifenbach's Cottonheaded Ninnymuggins. I used an empty spice bottle and made a 5.25"x3.50 label and made a 3.50x2.50" message to curl up on the inside:
Just keep it between you and me, okay?



Happy Veteran's Day everyone...be sure to thank a vet! I sent my daddy an e-card but I'm off to call him and talk to him in person. I appreciate the freedom I have in this wonderful nation and it is thanks to people like him!
