My buddy in PA wants to know "what is mexican cocoa?"
Well, PAIGE (that's her name.....I'll tell you all about her in a minute) Mexican cocoa is just that: a powdered cocoa mix that is SUPER SWEET with a hint of other spices (like cinnamon, almond flavor and some other yummy stuff)
It's my favorite thing from my childhood. I smell that and am instantly transported to my mom's kitchen, safe and warm next to her. I buy it at Food Lion or the Mexican market and grind mine up in the food processor. It comes in small blocks and I grind it up and keep it in a jar. Micaela BEGS for it....It's just like when I was a small girl....
Now onto to who PAIGE is.......She's my internet pen-pal from PA. We met online YEARS ago. She's a fine Christian woman with a kind heart and good values. She cooks, bakes and eats (just like me). She shares recipes and stories with me. And we have never met!!
Distance was an issue when I lived in Alabama then Alaska. But NOW, we live on ly 80 miles apart....so we're gonna meet. I am so nervous! What if she doesn't like me? What if she thinks I am a kook? (Well, by now, she KNOWS I am a kook!)
I just think Paige is awesome. She's been my angel friend more times that I can share. She is so kind. I wonder what I did to deserve such a fine friend.....
