OT: fried chicken and hot chocolate

Have a question or want to show off your project? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I bought some chicken thighs and bread crumbs to make some fried  
chicken.  I suppose when I get to it, that will be the ultimate test for  
my little make-shift dealio for my cast iron pan.

It is getting cold enough here for me to occaionally drink hot drinks  
like hot cocoa or hot tea every once in a while.  I know how to make  
real hot cocoa with milk, cocoa, and sugar and a little vanilla, but I  
usually do it the lazy way with Swiss Miss or whatever.  On the Swiss  
Miss package, there were 2 suggested ways to jazz it up.

The first was to add some cinnamon (1/8) teaspoon and about half that  
much chile powder.  I suppose if you do not like hot stuff, you could  
just add the cinnamon, but I did not think that small an amount was very  

Their 2nd suggestion was to add a Tbsp of smooth peanut butter.  They  
specifically suggested Peter Pan, but I think Jif, Skippy, stuff from  
the dollar store, or even homemade would work just fine.  I thought I  
would put the peanut butter in, and would have a great big lump of PB  
sitting in the bottom of the cup, but it actually dissolved pretty quickly.

To relate this post to quilting, at least a little, I think it would be  
a bad idea to drink hot cocoa (or tea or coffee or whatever) when  
quilting unless you have one of the spillproof commuter cups.
