Hey bloggers and lurkers!
Speaking of lurkers….I’m interested in hearing from you! Bloggers are infamous for commenting because they have their own blog to promote (not that it’s a bad thing, but I think it intimidates “readers”). I sometimes wish I had superpowers and could see exactly who all these readers are.
Speaking of superpowers, I sometimes think about all the ones I wish I possessed. I wish I could control time. I know it’s not a super creative one, but you have to admit it would be pretty great. If I could have the ability to stop time, like Zack Morris on Saved by the Bell whenever he had a concept to ponder or a cheesy anecdote to give, I could get everything I need to do done in one day. I could sleep for a couple of hours, then resume time as if nothing had every happened. I could even go back in time and re-do one night if need be.
But I was thinking there are probably a bunch of useless superpowers. I was inspired by a family guy episode where the Griffin Family all get superpowers and Meg gets the super-useless power of the ability to grow nails fast. I thought up of a few of my own:
Superpower #1: Leftsided Levitation: Only half of you can levitate. Which means the other half acts as an anchor. As an added un-bonus, cabs are constantly stopping for you whenever you engage your powers on the street.
Superpower #2: The ability to turn traffic lights yellow: And ONLY yellow. The “yellow” light is such a debate, this will simply cause a major cluster fuck.
Superpower #3: Thumbo! The ability to turn all your fingers into thumbs. Try texting with THAT!
Superpower #4: Incredible Sulk: no matter what good or positivity comes your way, you’ll manage to sulk. Cheer up already!
Superpower #5: Amnesia Man: The ability to…o that’s right, you can’t remember
Superpower #6: Hour Power: The ability to travel in the future by an hour, and it only takes sixty minuets!
Superpower #7: Vegetarian Delight: A vegetarian with the power to hear vegetables scream with every sweet sweet bite.
Superpower #8: VCR programming: The ability to program a VCR! Sounds great, but when’s the last time you saw a VCR?
Superpower #9: Bunny Minds: The ability to control the minds, of bunnies.
Superpower #10: Jam Wham: The power to open Jam Jars with my mind… cant do peanut butter or cheese spread.. only Jam..
And speaking of Jam and superpowers…….
It’s time for another giveaway! I was so mean with my teasing you last week, but the time has come. But incase you didn’t get the hints, it’s for Crofters! Crofters makes certified organic jams, jellies, conserves, preserves, fruit spreads and superfruit spreads. I used the Blackberry and Blueberry ones for my thumbprint cookies, and today with my kiddie dessert class, I used the strawberry. But I think their best is their superfruit spread which has a combo of antioxidant rich fruits like pomegranates and currants! This isn’t like that very high fructose corn syrup jams that you usually find! Their ingredient list is short and my student could actually read and pronounce all of them! I will use the jars I got to sample in other recipes this week. The winner of the giveaway will recieve 4 jars of their choice! To Enter:
1) Leave a comment telling me your useless superpower
2) Mention this giveaway on you blog OR if you dont have a blog, leave a seperate comment telling me which jams or spread you would like to try
3)For a whopping two additional entries, make one of my recipes (or a close version of it) and either post it up on your blog or send me an email with a picture of what you made!
This giveaway ends next Monday! More giveaways coming after as well, just in time for my birthday!
Good Luck! And if you want to win something else, you can ward off vampires in Janetha’s giveaway
Now onto my kiddie dessert class! We made PB and J cereal bars, and here is the recipe:
3 tbs Butter/margerine
6 cups of cereal of choice (I didn’t do rice krispies cause they were probably used to that, so I chose my childhood favorite, cheerios!)
1/2 cup or so of peanut butter (I used chunky and I didn’t really measure, but you get the idea)
1/2 jar of jam of choice (I used the Crofters organic strawberry!)
about 5 cups of mini marshmallows
Melt butter in a big pot until its comletely “liquified”. Add marshmallows and stir until they have completely combined with the butter and lost their shapes.
Stir in the peanut butter and jelly until well mixed. Then, pour in the cereal (any cereal you choose) and keep stirring until the cereal is coated in the mixture.
Then remove it from the heat and pour into a shallow pan. Or in my case, give a chunk to each kid so he/she can shape his “treat” however he/she like. Enjoy!
