The weather guy says we should get used to the haze (a/k/a dust). He also said that by the weekend, the winds will shift and we will have high humidity.
Outdoor activities are not so appealing (unless you're a cat ... or a bird). Our night time lows are in the 80's.
So while it's hot and hazy outside, what's a girl to do but play with yarn inside.
And make a mug cocoa cake using the microwave instead of the oven.
Mix in microwave safe mug 2-1/2 TBS flour, 2-1/2 TBS sugar, 2 TBS cocoa powder, 1 egg, 1-1/2 TBS vege oil, 2 TBS milk, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and a small pinch of salt. Sprinkle chocolate chips and chopped pecans on top and bake for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes. (Don't overcook or the bottom will become hard and tough.)
