1) We went to a play. I don't remember what it was called but we clearly weren't expecting a 2 person play where they played multiple people. PLUS, I wasn't the one who read or looked into it at all... that was all John.
Anyways, I'm telling you all of this because one of the popsicle sticks says something along the lines of "mystery ingredient dessert". For this one we go to the grocery store and pick out an ingredient that the other person has to make a dessert out of.
So I picked up some aloe drink for John (mostly because I was curious about the taste... kind of like a flat 7up for those of us that were wondering) and he got me some Indian Karela (see photo)
So yes, I made mine into brownies and because I wasn't sure what it was going to taste like I loaded it with extra cocoa and chocolate drizzle on top. As well as some pecans and marshmallows. It turned out not too bad. I won for presentation!
John made a vanilla cake with his and then made a chocolate mousse for icing. He decided a little too late that a nice vanilla and cinnamon icing might have been better. His won for taste.
writing activity around this book because the teacher had left me extra time to fill. Basically we made our own monsters for scary street.
4) I've got two Christmas presents bought... and plans to buy at least one more (and I know exactly where to go to get the stuff for that one) and part of another (which may turn into John's birthday present instead... I haven't decided).
Not sure what my plans for Halloween are yet... John and I have been looking at pumpkin carving stuff... so maybe we'll do that and hand out candy at his place. And maybe watch some kind of Halloween movie too.
