|Still had to get all of my ingredients out, but much quicker, no baking, and less clean-up...|
|Before the microwave|
|Just out of the microwave. And I did 2 minutes since I doubled the recipe. Which was too long. Just so you know...|
|Good flavor, but interesting consistency. Don't know if this was because I over-microwaved it, or because it's cookie ingredients in a ramekin.|
|Notice Russ' dish to the left. He was actually very chivalrous and took the over-microwaved one, and I took his better microwaved one.|
|He still finished more than I did. Ashamed I let that much chocolate go to waste.|
Well, I made up for my dessert faux pas with a yummy, easy dinner the next night. It had been overcast and gloomy here, so I made beef stew. I love this recipe, because it is kinda' like refrigerator stew. I used stew meat, carrots, potatoes, green beans, celery, onion powder, and garlic powder, and doused it in spicy V-8 juice. Let it go in the crock pot on high until dinner time and you have yourself some pretty tasty dinner. Add a salad and a loaf of french bread and you are golden!
|And so yummo!|
My felt finally came in the mail, so I was able to try out some wreaths for the basement bedrooms. I got the inspiration here and here, and made up my own with different color schemes. They still need some tweaking and a few minor adjustments/add-ons, but they are a good start!

|Mixing in some yellow|
