I found this recipe the other day and I was a little skeptical that it would taste good but you know what- sprinkle it with some powdered sugar and it will do the trick if instant chocolate cake it what you are looking for. I mean half the fun is watching it come alive like a mummy thru the microwave and then eating it from a mug…
4 tablespoons cake flour (plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (you can add more or less)
1 dash vanilla
1. Add dry ingredients to a coffee mug and mix well.
2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
4. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla, mix again.
5. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
6. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!
7. Allow to cool a little and enjoy!
So one of the porjects we do in ceramics around this time is year is make egg rattles. We learn about how different cultures use rattles in all different types of ceronmies and purposes that they just aren’t for babies. We talk about the Gourd rattles that are used in the hula and things like that. Anyways i amde 2 last year as examples but this year I wanted to make a bunch for my self for easter. Each one has a very unique and different rattle when you shake them. Here is how they came out…
Before they were fired the second time and the 2 I made last year…
and here are the finished 7. I broke on of the petals on the orange flower one but I think for the most part I think they came out wonderful!!
So yesterday was a pretty bad day. Although I love my job there are some definite bad days -I mean come on I work with teenagers. I woke up yesterday after having bad dreams all night and I just started the day off in a weird mood and it just got disastrous from there at school for many resaons. Anyway I left school with a giant sigh and hoped for better things and low and behold on the way home I suddenly realized that for the last 8 months I have been driving by a bison farm. I think I have noticed before but yesterday it just hit me and I saw this giant fuzzy guy and I just had to stop. I mean it looks like something for the muppets. I just wanted to touch his head so badly- it looked so dense and spongeey. It put a smile on my face.
Then when I got home I got a surprise package at the door and I was so psyched when I saw the beautifully designed name and who it was from!! Ill save what was inside for another post but lets just say my day was no longer bad! Thank you Nicole!!!
