Mom and I had a movie night Tuesday. I made Chocolate Mug Cake with melted peanut butter chips and we watched Auntie Mame.
Chocolate Coffee Mug Cake
(Ryn e-mailed me this recipe as a chain or forwarded e-mail. It's one of the few chain e-mails that I've been glad to get.)
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
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!
[I like to check it with a toothpick, like you would a normal cake.]
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
I would LOVE to make this afghan often seen in Rachel & Monica's apartment! I hope to replicate it from these (and maybe other) photos of my TV.
Stu and I got a couple's massage and went to lunch at Red Butte Cafe for Valentine's Day.
I had the smoked turkey salad, it has bacon, corn salsa, avacado, tomato and lots of dark greens. Mmm!
We then went to Bath and Body Works where I was gonna buy some stuff, but Stu ended up paying for it all as a Valentine's gift.
Pictured from top: Vanilla Noir Body Spray, Vanilla Noir Body Cream, Midnight Pomegranite Body Wash (Stu suprised me with that one, I though he was getting it for him, haha!), behind the body wash is a purse size Butterfly Flower Body Lotion new for spring, can't wait 'til the full line for that scent is out... I gotta have it!
Sunday, Stu and I talked to another Bishop for our wedding. We'll be talking that over soon.
After talking with the Bishop on Sunday, Stu, Ryn and I went shopping. Stu and I each got some spending money from our tax refund and I used some of it to buy this stuff. We had so much fun shopping together. I bought a Paramore CD and the Twilight soundtrack for Ryn. We had lunch at Sconecutter too!
Clockwise from top left: Three's Company Season 4 on DVD, Beetlejuice DVD, Over The Hedge DVD, red hair dye (my last one faded after just a week!), Finger Paints nail polishes, one of those new fangled extension mascaras (we'll see), Nail Magic (I swear by this stuff!) and an Earth, Wind & Fire hits CD.
Ryn and I then watched my new movies in Stu and I's room and had some chocolate coffee mug cake with butterscotch chips.
We both eventually feel asleep with the TV on. Good thing I didn't work today.
No, needlework news this week, sorry kids.
