CHILLY NIGHT SWEET TREAT

Ahh...the perfect chilly evening treat...

Mexican hot chocolate and pan dulce
A cup of Mexican hot chocolate (it's a hot chocolate made with cinnamon and other spices) and a Mexican pan dulce (pastry).  This particular one is called a querno, or horn.  Very warming on a cold evening. 

What is your favorite cold night treat?

Wow, does that ever look delicious! I think I would like to skip dinner and head right to that! Somehow fish burgers made with rock cod don't sound as tasty after seeing the picture of what you are having!!! If we were having something sweet, cookies and milk are so hard to beat - especially comforting Snickerdoodles or Grandma's molasses cookies. Eating her cookies was like getting a hug!

Peach cobbler with ice cream on top would be my choice. However, often I have a big bowl of oats full of raisins, butter and sugar along with a glass of cold milk.

Warm persimmon pudding with cream. Or just-baked buttermilk rye with dill and chives; dripping with butter.

Now I'm hungry!

If I am feeling really decadent, mulled wine, with cinnamon and cloves.
Otherwise, a big bowl of home made soup, with sour-dough toast. Mmm.

Fish burgers? Never heard of that but I bet it beats the heck out of a fish sandwich, ha. Oh yum, snickerdoodles and molasses cookies are heaven aren't they?

Oh, warm cobbler with cold ice cream is lovely. And love oatmeal though I've never had it with raisins added, will have to try that. We just had some regular steel cut oats and bacon.

Persimmons...hmmm, I'll have to try some store bought...you'll need to look back to last November posting about our persimmon tree we found on the farm and then tried some and I thought I was going to have a reaction, ha. Buttermilk rye? OK now that sounds yummy....will have to google some recipes.

I like the way you think!! That sounds yummy!

LOL! Now that's cutting to the chase. Definitely true!

German "Gluehwein", a spiced wine they sell at Christmas markets - and of course bottled, in stores. I always have a few at home and they bring back memories of walking around the markets, smelling all the wonderful "Christmassy" scents, noshing on treats...

My favorite cold night treat is hot cocoa with whipped cream.

Hot chocolate and any kind of a muffin or sweet bread. Cream cheese or banana are my top 2 favorites.

If there hadn't been a frost yet the persimmons would have been so astringent you'd think you'd been poisoned! Native persimmons need a frost to develop their sweetness, and they're primarily used for cooking. Japanese persimmons are both larger and sweeter, although they can be pretty astringent if not fully ripe.

This autumn, wait until you have a hard frost... maybe even two... and then pick them. This is a good recipe you can use either type of persimmon in: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Persimmon-Pudding

Well it was definitely before a frost. But they were so so overripe and dropping off the tree I didn't think I had much time left to do that. I will try again. Yes, I thought my throat was going to close up, ha. It was horrible.

Thanks for the recipe link!! Will try next Fall. ;-)

1st Man said...

Yum, that sounds wonderful. I will have to look for that next Winter, sounds like a great Christmasy treat!!

1st Man said...

Oh, there is nothing better than that is there? Wonderful!!!

1st Man said...

Another vote for hot chocolate!! Cream cheese AND banana would be a great combination too, ha.

1st Man,

A nice cup of tea, blanket, fireplace, and snuggling next to the one you love.
