It's Hot Chocolate Time!

as the temps dip to the teens & twenties here it is time to pack the cocoa into the ski basket. I thought I would share a recipe I got from a ski friend for a homemade coca mix...plain & simple, no corn syrup...just 3 ingredients!

4c powdered milk
1c sugar
1/2c cocoa powder

mix together - add hot milk and marshmallows and enjoy! I store the extra in a tupperware and bring it along with our lunch to the ski area!

Ski Season is Here!

it is that time of year again to start thinking about packing our luggage sets and hitting the road for the downhill ski race circuit.

All 3 kids are racing this year and my husband is coaching which means someone is on the snow 7 days a week so we live a life on the go - often at freezing temperatures.

I decided this year that I need to invest in some good cold weather clothing so I have asked Santa for a long down jacket - kind of like wearing a sleeping bag on the hill!

doesn't that look toasty warm?? I also figured my feet need some new boots to keep them warm too so when CSN stores offered me the opportunity to review a product from their shops I decided to order a pair of BOG boots from them and test them out on the slopes.

look for my review here in a few weeks once they arrive and ski season gets underway!
