The holiday weekend is here! My model came home from summer camp without being expelled which is always a good thing. Now we’re ready for a little family fun. I’m looking forward to seeing Mr. Waterstone, Jr. this week, too.
Totally unrelated but fabulously fun…
Learned how to make “cake in a cup” this week! It takes, literally, three (yes 3) minutes to cook in the microwave. So cool and it would be an awesome activity with the little ones. Heck, I’m old and I was thrilled. I got it from Karen over at The Art of Doing Stuff. I know, I’m quite stalker-y with the gal. But she does rock and on top of that, she’s funny. While you’re there be sure to check out this Frozen Yogurt Tampon post and especially the video. Hilarious!
Anywho, getting back to actual edible things. I know the thought of a frozen yogurt tampon may have thrown your mind out of whack but we need to focus, people. This is what I did with the cake in a cup…
4 tbs. self-rising flour
4 tbs. sugar
2 tbs. cocoa
3 tbs. oil (it calls for vegetable. i used canola)
3 tbs. milk
take a fork and whisk the heck out of it. Then add:
a nice little handful of chocolate chips. Then…
Microwave on high for three minutes.
(it’s fun to watch how high it rises in the microwave. a little scary actually)
Okay, so that’s it for a few days or even a week. GAH! I don’t know if I can go without blogging for an entire week. I may die or go all postal which would really suck for our friends and totally ruin a legitimately fabulous vacation. So, any special plans for the holiday in your neck of the woods?
Until next week,
hugs and a multitude of wishes for safety and fun are being sent your way,
