Mug Cakes

Have you heard of mug cakes? They are a pretty awesome idea. You mix some cake batter up in a mug and cook it in your microwave for 2 min. Fastest cake ever!

I have to admit though that my attempt at a mug cake turned out pretty dry, so I won't give you my improvised recipe (you can look it up, there are plenty of recipes out there).

Happy Chinese New Year!

Not that I am particularly chinese in any way, but I think it is pretty cool that it is the year of the DRAGON! wrawr!

This is a perfect occasion to read some fairy tales, perhaps a chinese one? How about The Dragon King's Daughter?


I have also found some dragon crafts to make if you are a dragon fan.

Crochet dragon

Dragon Bread

Paper Dragon

Dragon Sweater
Finally, if you just feel like relaxing, I would suggest watching a good dragon movie, either "How To Train Your Dragon"



or "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"



Can you tell I am a child at heart?

My Day in Pictures and Video

I was bored, so I took the train into Boston, and walked around the harbor.





and looked at pretty buldings.


Then I bought some delicious cupcakes at Mike's Pastry, which were unfortunately (slightly) damaged on my way home ;)


I missed the train, so I waited at a nice little cafe (Equal Exchange Cafe) right by North Station. They happened to have improvised live music when I was there, which was an excellent experience.


I didn't want to seem too obvious when I took the video, so I just recorded myself doodling to the music:)


And here's just a little silliness. I love staring at squirrels, and Josh loves giving them silly voices :)
