After three glorious days of sunshine and weather in the 70s, at last, and even more important temperatures above 50 at night so the tomato plants can start to grow, it turned cold again. So I’ve just made a big white Ikea jug of hot chocolate for the troops. And not just any hot chocolate. This is proper Mexican chocolate that comes in rough sugar-specked rounds, sold in a stack that’s been wrapped in coarse pink paper. It’s from my secret stash of treats, like the Provencal chestnut and lavender honeys at the back of the pantry. This was the right day for it!
