Chocolate Milk for the Mom who enjoyed solitude one day !

Solitude ! This word scared me a couple of years ago and the very same word is something that i’m chasing off late. What do you do if you had the entire house to yourself ? Before you jump to conclusions about me chasing Solitude , I would like to clarify that I love my family from the bottom of my heart, but I for one would hope to be completely alone once a month and have the entire house to myself , no waking up to alarms , no negotiations on why it’s important to shower in the morning , no business deals in front of the kids closet and reason out as to why it’s not cool to wear a skirt and a frock together …..this…..that……..and the list goes on…..

Aristotle said ” Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a God ” , but there’s a 3rd category to this , the never say no ” Mother” who would love a quiet corner with some peace 🙂 I mean no disrespect to all the other men and women who are busy , but hey , try arguing with a toddler about what to wear and what not to wear…you’d hand out a medal in appreciation 🙂

So much about Solitude ! While I love being alone once in a while , this time around , I decided to treat myself like a kid with a Chocolate Milkshake.  The only twist being I made this completely Non-dairy. For once I had a Milkshake and saved a truck load of guilt! Making it was extremely easy. Took me exactly 5 minutes to whip this Chocolate goodness.
