cacao drink

anonymous asked:

Was just scrolling through your profile and reading your Nightmare before Christmas-Theory AND PLS COULD YOU WRITE D&E BEING YOUNG LITTLE BOYS AND WATCHING NBC TOGETHER, DRINKING CACAO AND ENJOYING HALLOWEEN? I need this so bad even tho it's August💖

“I got a million pieces!” Dylan announces proudly, holding up his pillowcase full of candy. “Me, too!” Eric says excitedly, eating a piece. Tom smiles up at them in the rear-view mirror, driving them home after a long night of trick-or-treating. He pulls into the driveway and the boys run up to the front door, giggling wildly as they ring the doorbell. Sue walks up after a moment with a big bowl of candy and opens the door, grinning as they yell, “Trick-or-treat!” “Well, look at you! I love your costumes!” she says as she drops candy in their bags, “You two are so cute, I’m just going to have to steal you!” They start giggling again and Sue holds the door open, watching them run inside. Tom walks up to the porch and Sue looks at him with a sympathetic smile, “Did they have fun?” Suddenly they both hear loud laughter and shouting. He just shakes his head with a chuckle and follows her inside.

“It’s starting!” Eric yells from the living room. “Hang on!” Dylan calls back, jumping up and down, “Moooommyyy, come oooon!” Sue laughs softly as she rips open the bag of marshmallows, “One minute, Dyl.” She looks down at his anxious little face, his nose and cheeks still rosy from the October wind. “Go on, sweetie, I’ll bring it in when it’s done.” Dylan runs to the living room, nearly tripping as he jumps onto the couch next to Eric. Sue pours the hot chocolate into two mugs and fills them with whipped cream and mini marshmallows. Eric and Dylan are staring at the screen intently as the opening of The Nightmare Before Christmas unfolds on the screen. “Thank you!” Dylan says excitedly as Sue hands him a mug. “Thanks!” Eric grins. They both take a sip and start laughing at the whipped cream on each other’s noses. Sue goes back to the kitchen to make some more hot chocolate for Tom and herself, watching the boys with a small smile.

Eric grabs the blanket on the couch and curls up under it. He looks over at Dylan who pouts and says, “I’m cold!” Eric looks around and grabs a blanket on the chair next to him, tossing it over to Dylan. Some of the hot chocolate spills and they both look at the spot with wide eyes. Dylan quickly blots at the spot with the blanket and then snuggles underneath it, the two of them pretending like it didn’t happen. Tom and Sue walk in after a little while to find the boys sound asleep. Dylan is lying back on the couch and Eric’s head is resting against his arm, a few candy wrappers strewn around them. “There’s the sugar crash,” Tom chuckles quietly as he lowers the volume on the TV. Sue carefully takes the mugs of hot chocolate and puts them on the table. “Hold on,” she whispers, leaving the room to get a camera and she snaps a quick picture of the boys. She and Tom sit down on the other couch, leaning back as they enjoy the crackling fire and the welcoming quiet. Nights like these never go unnoticed by Sue. This will be another wonderful memory that she’ll be able to share for years to come.

The One Minute Power Breakfast: Maple Cinnamon Yogurt with Crushed Walnuts & Cacao.

Though I am blessed to work from home, that one hundred thousand trillion percent does NOT mean that I enjoy making elaborate meals every moment of every day. Sure, I love whipping up a good five-courser if friends are coming over, but when it’s just me, I often resort to what my friend Janson and I jokingly call “Food for Single People”.

One Minute Power Breakfast Bonuses: Protein, hella healthy fats, heart strengthening amino acids, brain boosting powers, mad antioxidants, a hit of dopamine, the zing of chocolatey caffeine, plus just YUM.

Mexican Chocolate Brownies with Cointreau Whipped Cream.



There’s something sacred about spice mixing, an alchemical process that allows flavors to become something other than themselves—and transform your experience of eating them at the same time. Here, cinnamon coaxes chocolate out of its shell, nutmeg elicits sweetness, and cayenne subtly steals the show.

When topped with whipped cream laced with Cointreau, the alchemy reaches an entirely new level of yesness. And I finished these off with some pomegranate seeds and cacao nibs, because fall and because beauty and because it was just the right thing to do.

  • like 
  • it would be so chill
  • just spread out on the couch and lazily watching movies
  • eating popcorn 
  • and the at some point you’d just like have a mini food fight with the popcorn but in the end you’d just clean it up
  • cause he’s the cleanest member
  •  and he likes it clean
  • not messy
  • eyyyyyy get it?
  • But then like
  • somehow
  • you’d two end up watching the  “Miracle in Cell No.7"
  • and he’d cry
  • and you’d cry
  • cause like
  • whyyyyyyyyy??
  • it’s so saaaddddd
  • and like 
  • it would just end up as a crying party
  • and you’ll be eating ice cream and tissues are everywhere
  • and then the other members walk in 
  • and they would think someone had died
  • but the they saw what was on the TV 
  • and probably would join ya
  • it’s a good movie okay?
  • Reading together
  • like you’d go to the closest bookstore
  • and just pick a few interesting books 
  • rent them
  • and go to the closest cafe or coffee shop
  • and just sit there for hours reading the books
  • occasionally chatting 
  • and then back to the books
  • it would be really comfortable
  • really chill
  • books and chill 
  • but not like netflix and chill
  • cause
  • you guys are bros 
  • just books and chilling while drinking hot cacao or coffee 
  • whatever you prefer 
  • I honestly prefer cacao, cause I don’t like coffee….
  • and then you’d just discuss the plot of the books
  • and the characters
  •  and pros 
  • and cons
  • and 
  • yea you get it
  • him recommending you books
  • and you recommending him books
  • just a lot of books okay?
  • You probably have to protect him from the local dogs
  • cause he’s afraid of ‘em 
  • not that I blame them 
  • not a big fan of them either
  • SINGING
  • Like his deep ass voice just like singing softly and you just like humming
  • when you’re bored
  • and like
  • he’d be like “Bro”
  • and you’d be like “Bro yes”
  • and then you’d be writing a song together
  • and calling yourselves the “awkward beans”
  • and recording the song for just the heck of it
  • and then a month later you find it and
  • crINGE 
  • TELLING HIM ABOUT MEANIE
  • Like just imagine it
  • imagine his face
  • just DO IT
  • and then magine Mingyu just popping out of NO WHERE
  • and then Wonwoo just like glaring at him 
  • and Mingyu being like 
  • “Bro what I do?”
  • and Woo’d be like
  • =_=+
  • and Mingyu’d be the clueless puppy as always
  • and you’d just be laughing your ass off in the background
  • and then as revenge he’d be giving your crush REALLY OBVIOUS CLUES that you like them
  • but somehow your crush would be oblivious to the hints??
  • and then you’d feel disappointed yet relived at the same time??
  • and then Woo’d be there with a bucket of ice cream ready for you to eat while you rant to him how can one be so oblivious???
  • and also a hand full of movies for you two to watch 
  • most likely one or two of them are horror 
  • just because
  • Halloween is almost here and he’d like to get in the mood
  • and besides
  • he prefers horror to comedy soooo
  • So in other words you’d have a sloth as a best friend !
  • I honestly want that to be real like 
  • sloths are really cute in my opinion 
  • okay that’s enough 
  • bye
