It’s winter. Is it not the time for hot chocolate???

Here is an excerpt from my latest piece in GoLocalProv

Mom called it cocoa. With a tablespoon, she scooped the powder from the box of Hershey’s and turned it into the milk heating on the stove. She stirred patiently and when done, she poured the cocoa into my cup and topped it with a marshmallow. I was careful to be sure the heat passed my sensitive tongue quickly as I had temporarily stuck it (and removed it painfully) on the rim of my cold sled while waiting to slide at the top of the hill. Once by my tongue, the drink’s warmth trickled to my toes.
