We had a strange thing happen today.
We watched a 1963 version of "Hawaii 5-0" on an Independent Channel while waiting for company to arrive.
This was in the afternoon. Then tonight we watched the NEW, 2013 version of the same show. Lo and Behold, they had redone that same show we saw in the afternoon, only it was slightly updated.
Fifty years difference in time, and we saw the same scenes, etc. There was very little difference between the story line on each version.
Let me know if you happened to see this and what your opinion is.

RASPBERRY COCOA MIX TO SHARE

1 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 cup non-dairy powdered creamer
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 packages unsweetened raspberry kool aide
5-1/2 cups powdered milk
Combine all ingredients in gallon size plastic bag. Shake to combine.
Place in an airtight container. Makes 9 cups mix. Place these directions on container:
Place 3 tablespoons mix into a mug. Add 1 cup boiling water; stir to dissolve.
Makes one serving.
Linda's note: We use Hersheys cocoa as it has no sugar in it. Also, one can vary the flavor of kool aid, and make many variations.
