For years I have made THINGS for people that are in our lives in a non family way.
This all started when I was a kid...
We live in a small town, so 6 more for all the workers at the Post Office, yup even
the cleaner upper person.
The garage mechanic, the sanitation workers
The people that I purchase gasoline from
My Florist and her staff
Friends at a couple of place I do business on a regular basis
Used to give to the children’s bus drivers…
Cookies, all kinds
Soup in a jar already to add liquid…enuff for a family
Remember the Constant Comet TEA?
Another time canned veggies, like when we had a GLUT of green beans or applesauce
Still want to do infused vinegars and oils with the herbs etc from the garden,
maybe next year…Do have the bottles, bought 6 years ago on SALE
Everyone will love sipping on this rich hot chocolate!

1. With a wire whisk, thoroughly mix dry ingredients together.
Stir in marshmallows.
Divide mix into containers.
2. Attach instructions to jar:
To use, fill mug one third full of cocoa mix and then stir in hot water.

Shades of Cub Scout days for sure!
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons flour(that's plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) some nuts (optional)
Small splash of vanilla
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.
Add the egg and mixthoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on 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 share!)
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the
day or night!
