Baby, It's Cold Outside

It's cold outside today. It's been snowing since early this morning. I love this kind of weather. Around 2 this afternoon, I needed to run a few errands, one of which was stopping by the grocery store. Here's what I was in the mood for today:

Pepperidge Farm Sourdough Bread
Sweet Sue Chicken 'n Dumplings
BlueBird Pecan Swirls
Nestlé Hot Chocolate with Mini Marshmallows
Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate with Mini Marshmallows
Hillshire Farm Deli Select Turkey & Chicken Combo Pack
Tree Top Apple Cider
Kroger Brand Red Grapefruit Slices in Light Syrup
Little Debbie Fancy Cakes
Dr. Pepper
Provolone Cheese
Claussen Dill Pickle Halves
• Potatoes for Baking
• Sour Cream

The sourdough bread was for toasting, as a side for the chicken 'n dumplings as well as for the turkey/chicken sandwiches. I bought both brands of hot chocolate because I couldn't remember which one I liked best (I think it's Nestlé, but Swiss Miss was on sale for $1). And I bought both the Dr. Pepper and the apple cider to heat up (separately) and sip while watching movies over the weekend. For those who have never had Dr. Pepper served hot, here's how you go about it:

Pour Dr. Pepper into saucepan. Heat to simmering temperature about 180º F. or just below boiling point, (The beverage will appear to be boiling long before if is hot due to the carbonation.) Place a thin slice of fresh lemon in bottom of cup and pour steaming hot Dr. Pepper over it. Serve at once. This drink will be hot - sipping hot or should be about 170º F. when ready to drink. NOTE: A fresh slice of lemon is required to give the proper taste of Hot Dr. Pepper.

I've never heard of hot Dr. Pepper before, although I have heard of people drinking Coke hot like coffee...it doesn't sound horrible either. I wonder if diet Dr. Pepper would would...I'll let you know!!

Corey & Terri-
Try it! You'll like it!

And as far as Diet Dr. Pepper goes, I don't see why it wouldn't work. I think Diet DP tastes almost as good as the real thing anyway!

Thanks for commenting! :)
