I’ve been reminiscing about my childhood lately and I can’t help but think about my parents, especially my mother. I am so grateful for her perseverance with teaching my siblings and I how to cook and be responsible. As a child, I just wanted to play with my friends. My mother was resolute when it came to teaching and discipline.
A mother’s cooking is special because it will stay in a child’s memory for the rest of her life. It’s breakfast time and I was thinking about what to eat, preferably something that will give me that “pick me up” feeling. I remember my mother made this delicious chocolate oatmeal. I was craving it, so I decided to make my own version using the Godiva hot cocoa that my friend gave me or the Ghirardelli premium hot cocoa chocolate mocha flavor. Mmm…
