Sweet Spot

Craving something sweet last night I tried this chocolate cake in a mug from here. I used half the amount of sugar and replaced the cocoa with cacao powder and only used half, and maybe went a little over with the chocolate hazelnut spread, but it was super yummy!

I made it again today, doubling the recipe as I did last night but divvying it up between three teacups. It went down a treat especially with The Most Adorable Granddaughter#5 who came for lunch following church.

Later, we met up with her family to feed deer at the local park. Son#3, or more specifically DIL#3, had collected a huge bag of acorns and given them to Son#2 a little while ago, and the deer certainly appreciated the treat.

And before the day became too cold for little ones (and bigger ones, too)  there was time to play in the park and kick up some leaves.

Even a sun lover like me can appreciate the beauty in a winter's day. ... But it's always nice to return home to a warm fire ... and maybe another sweet treat!
