Hot Chocolate surprise

Hot chocolate is my favorite thing during the cold winter months, and I find that it is my "comfort" food when I'm feeling stressed, worn out, or just plain not feeling well.  A friend recently introduced me to European Cafe Style hot chocolate (available at Safeway) and it is some of the best hot cocoa I've had (beware milk chocolate lovers, it may not be to your liking, it is dark chocolate).  It comes in a nice little canister which I've put to good use. 

This evening when I opened the canister in order to scoop some cocoa powder into my mug I found a surprise.  No, it was not a mouse (good guess though).  It was a sandwich baggie with money in it.  I immediately got a huge smile on my face as I knew who the culprit was.  It was Nadia.  She had mentioned giving me some money for the month of December for letting her stay with me.  I told her that she didn't need to, and that I wouldn't take any money from her if she tried to give me any.  We bantered back and forth about it, and I told her that I'm pretty good at finding hidden things so not to even try hiding it.  I thought I'd won.

Nadia sure got me.  I would not have thought about checking the cocoa container before she left.  In fact it's been several days since I've had any cocoa.  Nadia enters the Missionary Training Center tomorrow to begin her 18 month adventure as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  Now it's my turn to figure out a fun and creative way to send the money back her way.  :)

Let the creative process begin.
