Family Matters:

We have really come to treasure family day. Before the boys were married we always made an effort to come together and break bread. It has always been a very special occasion for all of us. The holiday has taken on new meaning with addition of two daughter In laws and a charming granddaughter. She is the purest of heart and fashions a new level of joy to all of our family functions.

We have had many family day affairs to remember. This past week we had a celebration early. Some of the family had to be away on business, but we were determined to keep the tradition alive. We simply ordered pizzas from our favourite spot. It was a great change of pace only some plates and mugs to wash up that was a huge upside. It was another chapter filled with laughter and love to add to our family scrap book.

Aside for the hijinks and hilarity that ensured, the little girl had lot of fun playing with our Border collie in the backyard. She also enjoyed sipping on a mug of salted caramel hot chocolate. We used the Salted Caramel Sonoma Syrup to get just the right flavour. Its what put this particular hot chocolate recipe over the top. 

As you might imagine, the hot chocolate won the day. What a wonderful way to warm up on a cool February afternoon. The recipe will surly become a staple on holidays that fall on colder months. After the pizza was finished, we capped the evening off with an ice cream sundae bar. Everyone peering over each other's shoulders to see what creations were being imagined as well as Stealing spoonfuls of each others treats. These are the moments family day encourages in our home. We truly are blessed by this gang, and we wish you all an equally playful time with your family and friends.
