Settling In

Once again, I have NOT podfaded, but life has a way of laughing at my plans to podcast. I moved for a new job and am very excited about everything here. That means that my computers/microphone/etc. are still scattered around my apartment. So, bear with me. I promise I will have something coming up, just in time to be too late for Christmas (just like everything else I am doing this year).

Alternative to Knitted Objects for Presents:

-1 big ol' mug, ideally from thrift store, maybe with ironic or cute design
-packet of dry "mix" from recipe below - just mix the flour, sugar and cocoa together
-5-Minute Mug Cake Recipe

4 Tablespoons flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
splash of vanilla extract
3 Tablespoons chocolate chips


Mix flour, sugar and cocoa, or dump in contents of packet, if using mix.

Add egg, stir well.

Pour in milk, oil and vanilla, mix well.

Add chocolate chips.

Cook in microwave for 3 minutes on high. (The cake may rise above the mug, but don't worry.)

Allow to cool a little, tip out onto a plate, and enjoy!
