December daily- part two from yesterday, and Day 5

Here are some shots from our tree decorating last night.  I also took some random shots of some simple Korean decorations we picked up last year. Not that you can really tell they are from Korea, but hey, it works for me. :)

I made two items on my Pinterest Food board today.  First was the homemade hot chocolate. I tweaked it a bit, since it tasted heavily like unsweetened cocoa, and added another cup of powdered sugar. We made it with milk the second time, and it was delicious! Even better with a candy cane as a garnish! :)

Homemade hot chocolate
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup cocoa (I used Hershey's, since its what I had)
2.5 cups powdered milk
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cornstarch
1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
hot milk

Heat your cup of milk in the microwave (60-90 seconds) and add 2 heaping TBSP's (for a full cup).  Stir with a candy cane or add marshmallows for an added treat.  Yum!

Dinner was Crockpot Orange Chicken.  I'm not going to re-post the recipe, because sadly, we didn't care for it too much.  I will make it again another time and tweak the recipe.  This one was WAY too much orange and a bit salty.  The kids ate it, but not as well as my friend's manicotti the other night! :D

Yay! I've made it to day 5 on the December Dailies! :D  Tomorrow night is the Camp Casey Tree Lighting Ceremony- this year, we are taking hats, gloves, and blankets!  We FROZE last year, even though they were handing out hot chocolate and treats.  I'll have to look through and see what I can come up with to bake for tomorrow. :)
