The Fauxmartha | Hot Chocolate

The turkey’s in the oven filled with cranberry walnut stuffing. I snuck in some kale. Shhh, don’t tell. The green bean casserole is prepped. Cranberries are crackling on the stove. The rolls are rising. And my dad is smoking the other turkey outside in the Texas snow. You read that right. Texas snow! It’s a Christmas miracle no doubt. 

The Fauxmartha | Hot Chocolate

I’m off to finish cooking and soak up as much time with my family as possible. And maybe make a cup or two of this homemade hot chocolate. I hope your day is merry, bright, and filled with food that makes your pants too tight. Just the way it’s supposed to be. Merry Christmas my friends!

PS—marshmallows highly recommended with this.
