Scary Sickness is Scary

So, we spent the weekend with my parents for Father's Day. Hung out with them and the in-laws quite a bit. Thankfully, I think everyone enjoyed the s'more cookies. They were awesome, imo. =P I have a couple dozen leftover cookies in the freezer. It was nice getting to hang out and eat cookies with the family.

My little brother just got back from a Boy Scout thing in south Florida, and joy of joys, two of the Boy Scouts got sick while there. Naturally, David comes back home, only to discover that he probably has the same thing the two other boys did. MRSA. Yep, the acronym of scary documentary/news story fame, the bane of hospitals (not this time, they don't know where it came from but none of them have been near a hospital). O_O

Mom (a doc) doesn't seem to think it is a big deal, and he is already getting treated for it, but it is still enough to scare a person a little bit.

Microwave Brownie in a Mug

Oh my gosh, I had heard of similar recipes before (cake in a mug, etc.), but never actually tried one. Then I came across this recipe a few weeks back, and have had it several times a week since then. It's completely addicting. I don't use the coffee (because I hate coffee), and I replace unsweetened cocoa powder with dark cocoa powder. I've added milk chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, peanut butter, nutella, etc. All were good.

But I just found one add in that was GREAT. I'm baking s'more cookies for Father's Day, but that means that we have leftover graham crackers and mini marshmallows. I replaced a little bit of the flour in my microwave brownie with crushed graham crackers and added marshmallows. *swoon*
