At any rate, I fell in love with Pizza Express on the first day at my Indiana University dorm, McNutt, when the Pizza Express Prophylactic Man showed up - breadsticks and prophylactics in hand. From there, the Freshman Fifteen was close behind. My new dormmates and I collected the colorful plastic cups to tote to the next keg party. Now, I still order the breadsticks and sodas, but I don't have the keg parties to re-purpose the cups. So what to do with the tall plastic stacks building in my cabinets?
I came home one day to find that my brilliant roommate, Erin, had discovered the perfect re-purpose for our HotBox cup inventory. We bribe the dogs with peanut butter-filled Kongs when we need a break from them, which is often. There is no real easy way to clean these tubular food toys of the sticky peanut butter remnants...until the HotBox cup re-purpose.
1. Soak in hot, soapy water for 1 hour.
2. Run hot water through tubular food toy, alternating the small and larger openings. Amazing! Peanut butter clumps just run out!
3. Dry re-purposed cups and cleaned Kongs.
|I know, Erin. The water stains are despicable!|
MOOSE UPDATE: The Moose Man went to a half day of camp yesterday and came home completely exhausted, which I love. He usually still has residual energy after a half day, but not yesterday. Wiped out! I didn't figure out why until I was going to bed and dreaming of a vacation. Moose was on SPRING BREAK! All of the abandoned Spring Break pups are starting to roll into camp. Moose was rocking out with all of the vacationing ladies - strolling on the beach, taking shots, and bumping at the dance club. No wonder he was so tired! You go, boy!
