Last Tuesday we had a delicious, colorful, and (at times) messy night at the Nuke Your Food! program. High schoolers met up in the Cardinal Room to create some nommy noms, such as a mug cake! The twist on this cooking class was that we made everything in a mug and just using a microwave.
What was doubly awesome about the night was that we also got to decorate and keep our food receptacles (mugs) using ink-based Sharpies!
All you need to do is buy special ink-based/paint markers, decorate a ceramic mug, and bake it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees!
Want to eat some delicious noms using just a mug and a microwave? Try out this recipe for the Easy Peasy Mac & Cheesy below! Enjoy!

Yesterday we welcomed Kathleen an instructor from Pulsation Yoga for an invigorating yoga practice. We learned about the benefits of incorporating a regular yoga practice into our lives. Besides improving flexiblity and building strength, yoga can give us an energy boost, provide balance in our busy lives, and help us relax.
