The Day-After Consolation Prize 

For all those who weren't quite up to Valentine's, a certain maggid's favorite coffee treat of the moment:
Spiced Mocha
4 oz. strong black coffee
1 oz. coconut milk (without sulfites)
4 oz. unsweetened soymilk (we prefer Silk)
8-9 chocolate chips (Ghirardelli's 60% bittersweet preferred)
1/2 tsp. powdered cinnamon
1/2 tsp. powdered cardamom
1/4 tsp. powdered nutmeg
1/4 tsp. powdered clove
1 tsp. powdered pepper seeds (we use dried jalapeño seeds and pith in a blender)
Nuke until chocolate melts.
Stir well.
Sit back in padded butterfly chair.
Sip slowly, while trying to imagine why killing for peace makes sense to anyone.
Laugh, cry, and call it a lament.
No hard feelings here. Literally, figuratively, or metaphorically. When it's over, I'm done, and he's gone. But in the spirit of eternal optimism, here's to putting a little heat in your engine.
