I was thinking this morning that I didn’t have the greatest weekend. I was thinking of all the things we didn’t get to do and feeling a little sad that my husband unexpectedly had to work all weekend. So no family hike, no car so no movie with the kids and no eggs so no baking cookies.
But then I thought, “Wait!”
What was I thinking? I have nothing to complain about. Nothing. It was sunny. We played outside. The street is now filled with chalk castles. There is a new bike ramp off the deck. Last night we crawled into freshly made beds, under sheets that that had blown dry in the sun and smelled like spring. My daughter lost a tooth and the Tooth Fairy made a credible recovery when the toonie (initially) couldn’t be found. I made it to book club any way.
Today I saw this Facebook post: 15 Powerful Things Happy People Do Differently
It’s a matter of perspective…
No eggs, no cookies, which led me to this:
Five-minute chocolate sauce
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 8 oz dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- ½ cup Grandma Fancy Molasses
- In a heavy bottomed pot, over medium heat, combine the cream and chocolate.
- Bring to a gentle simmer and stir until the chocolate has melted.
- Remove from heat and stir in the molasses.
- Stir well, cool and refrigerate.
This recipe works well with half chocolate chips and half unsweetened chocolate too.
