Heady stuff

To celebrate the holidays, The Marchviolet sent me this lovely, strange cocoa (along with other amazing stuff). Here it is in my favorite mug, on a trivet that used to be in my grandparents' house in Kansas City.

The cocoa is wonderful: chocolatey, citrusy, smooth. It was so easy to make on the stove that I wonder why I've been messing around with that Swiss Miss crap all my life.

The mug is from Shearwater Pottery in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. I remember going there on a field trip when I was in middle school. Sadly, Katrina hit Shearwater really, really hard. Most of the Shearwater information on the web is stale, but if Wikipedia is to be believed, the Andersons are making a go of it again. Thank heaven for small mercies.
