After watching Chocolat for the umpteenth time recently I started having Hot Chocolate now in the morning and even though I am not even close of making it half as good as la Binoche did it reminded of of some good times I had a long time ago.
Back in 1978 early winter your mum and I used to go for long walks in the snow to errrrr cool our hormones mainly LOL
And we discovered this really nice Colombian Cafeteria miles away.
They just had this awesome awesome Hot Chocolate served straight out of a copper pot into a huge bowl made of real chocolate and subtle spices and all for the price of any regular hot chocolate anywhere.
After a long cold winter walk it was pure heaven I tell ya.
We were very very poor I think we just had had a huge raise on our weekly allowance from $2 to $5 each.
So that was a huge $10 to spend between the both of us.
So we spent it on hot chocolates and
empanadas or enchiladas or what not they had.
One of the owners took a liking to us and
when we left he always gave us a huge bag of
Empanadas /Enchiladas/ WhatNots
worth more than all we had bought on that night
while his partner gave him the evil eye LOL
Needless to say that business went tits up in no time
but those were good times.
