The Start of My Poncho
Wednesday, January 24, 2007
It's coming along nicely and knitting up really quickly. I am hoping to get this done before the first of February so that I can start on my Green Hat. The day was uneventful really. I skipped out on Spanish class because I went to the dentist today. I ended up needing to get a tooth filled. Blegh. Novacaine always makes me feel sick and I just in an all around bad mood.

I have a presentation due tomorrow. I am going to write it up tommorrow and get the ingredients. I was originally going to make plaster cast masks. I don't know why it is easier for me to find the plaster in a place like Ohio but it was. I have called dozens of stores, went to countless pharmacies. I got lucky when I went to my former podiatrist but he didn't have enough to give me the full amount that I needed. So plan B. I was thinking about demonstrating how to knit. That however is really not condusive to an actual demostration, besides I amalot better just doing something than I am teaching someone else step by step.
I finally decided on making Muddy Buddies. They have a microwave downstairs for me to melt the ingredients and it doesn't take much. Besides everyone likes eating demostrations. Here's the recipe.
9cups Chex® cereal (any variety)
1cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2cup peanut butter
1/4cup butter or margarine
1teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


1.Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2.In 1-quart microwavable bowl, stir together chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3.Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Stove-Top Directions:
Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside. In 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Enjoy! More to come when I get the time for more knitting, or something else note worthy comes up.
