Thank goodness January is over. For many it's the month of post-holiday rest and rejuvenation, but for us it's equally as frenetic as December, with all those family birthdays we have on our calendar. It's two full months of festivities, and while it's fun and entertaining and a great way to kill a month of our long Canadian winters, I'm happy it's over. Now we can relax.
I told Rob yesterday that I'm feeling worn out, and I know it's likely the cold in my head that's making me feel this way, but I'm ready for a little break. So with the exception of the work that I'm doing (and love!) I'm waving a white flag on the celebrations for a bit, which is why you don't see a big Super Bowl-inspired post here today. Instead what you are seeing is the laziest marshmallows a person can make.
We were out of our favourite hot chocolate accompaniment, so I whipped up a batch yesterday morning. But instead of pressing them into a baking pan and taking the time to methodically cut them and dip them in sifted powdered sugar, I used a soup spoon to place dollops of the marshmallow fluff on a baking sheet. I inserted a lollipop stick into the ends to create a stir stick of sorts, and instead of plopping them into a mug, they can be used to swirl around the hot liquid. Lazily. Which is just the way I'm liking things these days.
