What's for Dinner Tonight?

Fort Christmas, both my daughter and my daughter-in-law gave us gifts of bread and beverage mixes they had made and packaged in canning jars and tied with nice ribbons and clever tags!  Well, Hubs and I spent the day with my mother in law, looking for a file cabinet and other office supplies for her and, in payment, she treated us to lunch.  Lunch was very good -- grilled marinated chicken and seasonal grilled veggies.  It seems that when Hubs and I have a large lunch, we tend to not eat much for dinner so I decided to try some of the mixes that we received as gifts.

The first thing I made was Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bread from my daughter.  I wish I had taken a photo of the jar with all the ingredients in it first but I didn't.  However, I did take photos of the process.

And with this, I had some Peppermint Stick Cocoa.

It was all very good and very sweet and I might do it all over again for breakfast.
