So far this month, I’ve been posting lots of crafts and recipes to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Today though, I wanted to celebrate the anti-Valentine’s Day sentiment. I know someone who is planning a weekend party for all of her single friends and I was so taken with the idea of a fun Valentine’s party without the pressure of bringing a date or being in a relationship, that I wanted to come up with my own contributions for such a soiree.
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup pureed beets
1 T canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Combine all dry ingredients and stir. Make a well in the center and add beets, vanilla, and oil. Mix to combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
Spoon onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 min at 350. Makes 8-12 cookies
Finally, we move on to the “Ex” Voodoo Doll.
Tell your pals to bring an old T-shirt (theirs, or their Ex’s). You will provide the:
Start by cutting off the sleeves of the T-Shirt. In the bottom center of one sleeve, draw a circle. This will be the head of your doll, so make sure the circle has an opening at the base of it. Stitch around your drawing, and then cut out the scrap.
Next up, turn the circle you just sewed inside out. Draw on a face, and then fill the head with stuffing.
