« Pulaski Day | Main | Planning for large-scale decorations »

Gee March, you sure look like February


I'm sure some of you, in some parts of this very same country, are enjoying sunshine and warm breezes.  We in Chicago are not.  It's one of those late winter days when all you want to do is crawl back to bed and stay there until MLB Opening Day.

I like to drink my way through the cold.  Pictured above (in a too-cute mug by Intelligentsia) is Green & Black's Hot Chocolate Drink.  I'm partial though, to local chocolatier Vosges' drinking chocolates (especially the Aztec Elixir).  Both are available nationally.  If you're in Chicago and feel like braving the elements, go to Hot Chocolate on Damen or Coco Rouge on Division.  Both make a heavenly drink, and the latter sells their own hot chocolate truffles that are fab.

Yes, these are all a little pricier than a box o' Swiss Miss from Jewel.  But what price happiness on a day like today?  If you insist on the watered down stuff, remember they'll have it at the concession stands during those early-season Cubs/Sox games.

Yeah, it'll still be cold on Opening Day...better stay in bed until the Taste.

Mmmmm.... cocoa. You read my mind -- I have been cold all day! Your recommendations sure sound better than the stuff I have in my pantry!

This sounds good too. Is it weird that I love to watch chocolate melt? It's so soothing:
