Billy Ray Cyrus

Since moving here we have been lucky enough to get in a few concerts, so far I've seen Sara Evans and Randy Travis. Last night we went to go see Billy Ray. We didn't really know what to expect. I mean he has some good songs but we just weren't too sure how the show would be. We were happy at the way it turned out. The show was AWESOME!! He was funny, got the crowd into it and just COOL! I even left my seat with James and hung out by the stage like some little groupie bit it was SOOOOOOO worth it. And yes mom, he did play Achey Breaky Heart and as soon as he did the whole place went nuts!! I apologise for the quality of the pics and vids but I stupidly forgot my camera and only have my cell with me.

Chocolate Danger

This came to me via email by Grandma Gail. I haven't actually tried it yet but Keenan and Nana are going to give it a go. I will let you know how it turns out.


Mmmm!!

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE!!

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips or (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract and your favourite tipple
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to your largest mug and mix well.

Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the chocolate chips (if using), vanilla extract and a drop or two of your favourite tipple, then mix again.





Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!







Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.







EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).



If your feeling very very naughty, cover liberally in Bailey's Irish Cream.

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?

Because now you are only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
