Comfort Food

We're having wonderful cold Winter weather here!
And after being hit on the noggin today by a blind that decided to jump off the wall (oh and lets not start about the 15 min I had to stand holding the darn thing up, til J came home to save me!)
I really was in need for some comfort food. So out came the trusty Pumpkin Soup, with yummy garlic rolls ( for some reason we like to have our garlic bread made in individual packets ( just Hot Dog rolls, with garlic butter wrapped in alu foil).
So Yummy with sour cream and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
To top it off we had a mug of hot Bestest Chocolate milk with a cookie

We all know how to make a good pumpkin soup, so I won't bore you with a recipe.
But for the Bestest Chocolate Milk, I will give you the recipe:

Bestest Ever Chocolate Milk

Serves 4.

4 cups of milk
2 cinnamon sticks
200gr block of milk chocolate (broken into bits)
mini marsh mellows to serve

Bring milk with the 2 cinnamon sticks to a simmer ( do not boil!) and stir occasionally for 10 minutes. Turn of the heat, cover and leave stand for 10 min.
Remove cinnamon sticks. Turn heat back on and while re-heating the milk add the chocolate and whisk until chocolate is melted. pour into 4 cups and top with a handful of mini-marshmallows.


Note: I got this recipe from a magazine, I just can't remember which one it was, if anyone knows let me know, so I can give proper credit to them!)
