Easy A(ssignment) w/ Update

Ok, this has nothing to do with my one of my daughter’s favorite movies with Emma Stone. It has everything to do with my HMR assignment for this week. I “like” (click FB link here) this kind of assignment. We are to create, consume, enjoy a hot drink made with an HMR meal replacement shake mix. I looked at several delicious recipes to accomplish this assignment but like most things I put a BarryDean slant on it. I call it the Hot Mint Cocoa. The ingredients are pictured in the attached photo.

Hot Mint Cocoa

8 oz. water

1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1 heaping scoop of HMR vanilla shake mix

2 shots of Peppermint Paddy SF DaVinci syrup

I nuked the water in a mug for 1 minute and then poured it into the blender. I then added the shake mix, the cocoa, and the syrup. I then blended all this in the blender for about 10 seconds, poured the mixture back into the mug and enjoyed.

Notes: I heated the water first because the shake ingredients seem to have an easier time of blending together. I also use the vanilla shake mix instead of the chocolate and add unsweetened cocoa for that chocolaty taste because the vanilla seems to have a sweeter taste to me.

Update:

Last night for class I weighed in for a loss of 3.4 lbs. for the week. That is a total weight loss of 12.2 lbs in three weeks. The weight loss is great, but the increased energy, attitude, and better sleep ranks much higher in my achievement stack. I am able to walk over 2 miles at a rate of about 3.2 mph, I am doing 30 minutes without stopping on the elliptical trainer, and working out with weights for about 45 minutes every other day. Can I just say “I wish I had started this earlier.” ? But I believe in a sovereign God, and He is giving me the strength to do this now.

Soli Deo Gloria!!

The whole family is looking for some variety in their coffee drinks. In the provided picture you will see the syrups we ordered. If you cannot read the label (you can click on it to enlarge it); from L to R – Coconut, Egg Nog, Pumpkin Pie, Orange, Butter Rum, Peppermint Paddy, and Peanut Butter. We also ordered a couple bottles of the SF sweetener syrup.
