June Funny Friday

Today’s post is June’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the others bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Funny Friday  - Baking In A Tornado

Here’s today’s picture. It’s the picture that inspired this whole project and was submitted by Black Sheep Mom.

Funny Friday - Black Sheep Mom, Baking In A Tornado

Red Statue of Liberty to the green Statue of Liberty:

1. “You need to get to New York Harbor. I’ll write down the directions but you better hurry before someone figures out you’re gone.”

2. “If I give you my number will you stop following me around?”

3.  “What did the Chief of Police mean we’re not dressed right for undercover work?”

4. “I could have sworn I read on Facebook that today was “dress like the Statue of Liberty” day.”

5. “How many strangers do you think took our picture today?”

And a bonus:
6. “I don’t care whether we look alike or not, I’m not your mother, stop following me around.”

1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup mixed berries of your choice, rinsed and dried off, larger ones chopped
½ cup cinnamon baking chips

¾ cup chocolate chips
Scoop of ice cream
Dollop of whipped cream NOTE: I make my own, recipe is here: Strawberry Shortcake, Nacho Style
½ cup chocolate chips, melted (for serving)
 
Directions:
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 X 8 baking dish.

*Mix in the cinnamon baking chips, then carefully mix in the berries.
*Pat evenly into the prepared dish. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and very carefully and gently spread the raspberry jam over the top. Sprinkle with ¾ cup of the chocolate chips. Return to the oven for 2 minutes.
*Using the chocolate chips that are already on the bars and have now become soft in the oven, use a knife to gently spread over the entire top of the bars.
*Cool on the counter for ½ hour, then in the refrigerator until completely cool. Cut into 4 squares.
*Top each square with a scoop of ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream and drizzle top with the remaining ½ cup of (melted) chocolate chips.
