Break Out the Bathing Suit and Dive into Some Frozen Hot Chocolate

One of the nicest things about growing up in the 1960's is that no one was harping about skin cancer.  You could "work" on your tan as much as you like.  Oh, it was good to be bronzed! Rub on that baby oil and iodine mixture and the thoughtful D-jays would remind you that it was "time to turn so you don't burn" every fifteen minutes.  You gotta' love your transistor radio!

Veronica decided to take a break from planning other folk's vacations and have one of her own.  Can you say, "Hawaii?"  Could there be love lurking amidst the hula and poi?
All you folks who are stuck at home can make the best of the long Memorial Weekend.  How about a decadent chocolate treat to cool down?
frozen hot chocolate
1 cup milk, hot
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
1 tablespoon sweetened cocoa powder
Chill.  When cold, pour in blender with:
12-14 ice cubes
Blend until it is the consistency of a smoothie.  Top with whipped cream.  Serves 2.
