"We Won Again" Part 2

Another funny thing about Samantha's view of how the basketball game went on Monday is the "again" part. She's in the U6 coed league, where each team has maybe three girls, at least one boy who can make every shot he shoots, and at least one bigger boy who's idea of basketball is to rip that ball out of other kids' hands and run like hell. Dribbling? What's that? Samantha's basketball exposure has been plentiful. The problem is she's only ever learned to be dribbling the whole time she has the ball. It wouldn't occur to her to grab that sucker and run. Plus, the kid that usually does that is almost ALWAYS the big kid on the team. Her team, however, doesn't really have the boy who makes every shot or the big kid. She has a group of good kids who try to follow what their coach is saying and try to dribble and pass. The fact that she believes they've won before just shows what a positive attitude she must have!

Also, I made these Molten Lava Cakes tonight, and they were super easy and excellent.

Melt 4 squares Baker's Semi-Sweet baking chocolate and one stick of butter on HIGH 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir with whisk until chocolate is melted. Stir in 1 cup powdered sugar until well blended. Blend in 2 eggs and 2 yolks with wire whisk. Add 6 T flour. Divide batter among four buttered custard cups. Bake 13 - 14 minutes at 425 until sides are firm but centers are soft. Let stand 1 minute. Run knife around cakes to loosen. Serve immediately with ice cream or whipped cream.
