A Drew Barrymore Kind of Day

I have officially decided that today is a "Drew Barrymore" kind of day. I never realized how many movies I owned starring her... So I've decided to watch them all in a marathon-y kind of way.

As I'm watching "Never Been Kissed", I can't help but think back to the first time I saw this movie. I kid you not-- it was in 8th grade-- IN class. That's right. I don't think our teacher knew what she was letting us watch (granted, it is only rated PG-13, but we all know Footloose is rated PG and it has quite a few bad things in it).

I tried to make some more homemade jewelry today. One was a button bracelet-- which I think came out ok. Here is the link to the DIY directions.

The other was a crocheted bracelet-- which pretty much flopped. I think the yarn was too thick:

Oh well, you win some. You lose some.

I also tried a new recipe-- Chocolate chip muffins. Here is the original link to the original recipe. I looked at some of the comments and adjusted the recipe. Here is how I made it:

1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees.

2. Mix dry ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I will add more next time!)

3. Mix wet ingredients (separate bowl)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

4. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients (don't over-stir-- just until it's mixed-- the batter still looks lumpy)

5. Pour into muffin tins (grease tins if you're not using muffin wrappers)
6. If you would like, sprinkle some sugar and/or brown sugar on top of muffins before you bake.
6. Bake for 16-18 minutes (check middles to make sure they are done)

This recipe made about 18 muffins. Not bad. I will definitely make them again.

Hope you tried something new this weekend as well!

  1. I love you and your creative-ness, matey soul! Someday when we are reunited (and it feels so good) we will have whole days where we movie marathon and bake stuff and make fun things! That day cannot come soon enough!
