Did you manage to stay warm and dry over the weekend?
Here in PA, I think we really dodged a bullet. We had 4 straight days of cold, wet, and drear, and it was looking like it was going to get even worse after that, with Hurrican Joaquin. In the end, it didn’t really amount to much for us, although sadly the same can’t be said for some of our neighbors in NJ!
In a weird way, we ended up kinda being grateful for the bad weather. For so many weekends throughout spring and fall, we have been at the baseball fields with our boys. For the most part it’s relaxing and fun, but I think it’s starting to wear a bit thin for all of us. Nobody wanted to have to go this weekend, not the kids or the grownups. All we really wanted to do was snuggle up at home with our games/books, and sip on something warm and comforting.
This is a real treat. If you like the layered Italian dessert known as tiramisu, then you’ll love this drink! It’s got all the same flavors of coffee, rum, and creamy mascarpone, with a little dusting of cocoa on top. You can even dip a few homemade ladyfingers into it! It felt so good to wrap our palms around big mugs of this, while watching the wind blow and the rain lash at our windows!
You may remember a while back, I mentioned about my husband and his diabetes. For him, this is practically guilt-free. Because I made it with Pure Via®, an all-natural, non-GMO, zero-calorie sweetener that is derived from the stevia plant.
One packet of Pure Via® is equavalent (in sweetness) to two teaspoons of sugar, and it has no calories, no fat, no sodium, less than 1 gram of carbs, and less than 1 gram of sugar. So it’s perfect for diabetics, or anyone who’s just trying to watch their diet.
I really hope you’ll enjoy this drink as much as we did!
