Cookies and Mexican Cocoa

We had grand plans to go to the Public Market yesterday. It is something that everyone that lives here should do at least a few times a year. We try to go as much as we can and yesterday seemed like the day, the sun was shining, the kids couldn't wait for hot donuts and hot chocolate (one of the glorious things about the outdoor market here is the FOOD!) And until I looked at the thermostat holding steady at 7 degrees I was fine with going.

But since it's not good for anyone to walk around in single digit temps, we decided to stay home and heat up our kitchen to stay warm.

The kids made, Mexican Hot Chocolate, with a pinch of chili powder and cinnamon.

Boots loved it! So did Little P, but she politely refused a picture!
Then we decided that we would make Jam Thumbprints, we used Barefoot Contessa's recipe. Yummmmmm!

The coconut was a nice toasty change from normal thumb prints. Thanks Ina!
