Homemade Chocolate Syrup

If you have kids I'm sure you go though a lot of chocolate milk. My kids love chocolate milk. Making your own syrup is super easy and only takes a couple of ingredients. I always have a jar of this in the fridge. This is great for ice cream too.

Chocolate Syrup

3/4 cup (homemade) brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla

Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a medium size pan. Add the water and whisk until all the lumps are gone. Over medium heat bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer on low until syrup starts to thicken (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat and cool. Keep refrigerated. This makes about two cups and last two weeks.




Our New Bathroom

The time has finally arrived. Our bathroom was overhauled. Everything was ripped out and replaced. And can I say so far I LOVE it. I don't have a picture of it when we first bought the house. It was painted dark blue and dark green stripes. It was horrendous to say the least. We painted the walls and cabinet and everything else stayed the same. I took a couple of before pictures, but they aren't on my camera. I have no idea what happened to them. I'm going to have to look back though a bunch of pictures to find a before. I know I have one somewhere. I started this post last week and was having trouble uploading the pictures. With the weather finally getting nice, we have been spending all of our time outside. The bathroom is finished I am just waiting to show the complete finished pictures after I get the new shower curtain up. Here are a couple of pictures during the process.

Luke couldn't help but get in on the action. He and Mac stood
at the door everyday waiting for "jobs" to do. The contractor
kept them busy all day. He said they worked better then any
of the helpers he has.
I love the marble floor.
Jax tried helping too but ended up in "baby jail" as
the boys call it. He was not happy about it.

I will hopefully post the finished pictures in the next couple of days. Have a great weekend. We are finishing up some yard work today and then headed to the park.
