My Mug Shot

Our fall book club selection, The Silent Gift by Michael Landon, Jr., and Cindy Kelley, centered around the tumultuous journey of single mother Mary and her deaf-mute son, Jack. Several times throughout the novel Jack drank hot chocolate, so I thought sipping hot cocoa was a must for our discussion of the book. I prepared this recipe for minty hot chocolate, which got great reviews from all the ladies. And I think it tasted even better served in custom-printed mugs from Discount Mugs -- a special favor for each member of our book club.

Still to come, recipes and our new winter book club selection.

I would love more information on how to form such a club, keep it going, and a number that is managable! Love the mug idea!

How cute! I'm so sorry that I couldn't be at the book club meeting this time. I really did enjoy the book. I am anxious to find out what the next selection will be.

Oh what a neat idea to have favors taken from the book. That's definitely a perfect chioce, I think! I hope you enjoyed the book as much as the cocoa and mugs.
