Do you have a huge bowl of clementines sitting on your counter? I do.
Maybe it’s because you can only buy them in a five pound bag (brilliant, btw). But I’m not complaining. I love the clementines—they look like nature’s Christmas ornaments, smell like winter sunshine, taste refreshing and clean, and are probably the only thing I have eaten all December that does not include refined sugar and/or white flour.
So bring it on, clementines. All five pounds of you. Here comes the Clementine Countdown. I am going to post a different way to enjoy clementines every day until Christmas. And I haven’t thought of all of them yet, so let me know if you have some good ideas.
Clementine Countdown 10: With Hot Cocoa as an afternoon snack. I work in a place that has an endless fountain of free hot cocoa, so this was a natural choice for my first post. Today I enjoyed the cocoa in my favorite new mug from Laguna Vintage Pottery.
