Things To Do!

Postby fruitloop » Thu Sep 09, 2010 7:57 am

Hi guys, well the board has gone a little quiet so I thought we could all do with another game! I'm not as good at making these up as Julie but here goes...
Those of you who know me will know I'm a bit of a list freak, especially "To Do" lists which generally take as much time to write as at least one or two of the jobs on the list.
So here goes, everyone write down 5 things they need to do today, and 5 things they want to do today.
Here are mine.

Need to do:
Sort out my graphs
Pop to tescos for a box, some bubble wrap, some oil and some washing up liquid (dont ask what we have for dinner tonight!!! lol)
Email graphs to my supervisor
Sort out what I am doing with my next lot of experiments
Marinate the meat for tonights dinner (DONE!)

Want to do:
Make some more sugar free chocolate cakes (other half diabetic and I'm trying to lose weight!)
Have a nice relaxing bath (chance would be a fine thing...we'll see if I get time)
Phone my aunt for a chat
Have a nice lunch at uni (hmm...we'll see what money I have)
Paint my nails (have to clean off the chipped pinkness on my toenails first and think of a new nail colour scheme lol)


Right...YOUR TURN!

I dont know the metric cos my grandma taught me to bake...
4 oz butter/marge
0.4 oz (about 20tsp) granulated sweetener (tescos own version is about 98p for 75g which is actually quite a large tub and is equivalent in sweetness to 750g sugar)
cream together
add 2 eggs, mix
add 8 oz flour, a bit at a time
halfway through adding flour add 1 small bar (the ones supermarkets do for about 30p in the value range, i think they are about 100g) melted dark chocolate
add some chocolate chunks
Mixy mixy mixy
put in cupcake tins
bake for about 15 mins (til they spring back if you prod them gently)

As far as the list goes - so far I have done my graphs and emailed them, and am in the process of sorting experiments.
Havent done any of my "want to" things yet but might have some lunch soon...
Oh also I have managed to get my dads birthday present sorted!
