Greetings and Holykisses Yall!
Stayed up late last night and had a ball. By the time I finished, I could not see my big long table, in my craft room. ~ My last day flea marketing, "when I showed you the metal dish strainer; I didn't take a picture; but had found a whole stack of vintage index cards in their original box. Last night, I got to start using them. I can't show a picture of the first one I did because I made it for one of you- my fellow bloggers! One hint... it's going to someone who likes blues n browns and I used the letter D card. ;)
This one was a blast to make. Made a copy of this: "Dolly Dingle," paper doll, and gave her some butterfly wings. I'd never made a pinwheel before but she really wanted to hold one.
I loved the lyrics in this old hymn, and the Lord does supply all my needs!
This morning my dear friend Fancynancy sent me an email that I had to share with you.
Ever get an urge for a "little chocolate cake?" Whoever thought of this is a genius! I've baked cakes in jars before but not in a coffee cup!
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
Looks good doesn't it with a little dollydingledollup of icecream on the side?
I haven't tried it yet so don't yell at me if it's awful. Least we'll only be out a handful of ingredients and five minutes right? lol
I'm off to pay bills in the big city. Okay so it's not really that big, but this country bumpkin has always been a little intrigued by high society chicks who " go into the city for the day."
The big city to me is one that has stoplights.
I'm the country mouse.
SMOOCHY HOLY KISSES DAAAARLING,
I'm off to the city*
