TP GANG {RUDELY} GATE CRASHED - Thursday, 21 June 2007
Stepping into the blue room, the TP {teacher's pet} Gang immediately noticed an impostor who was gate crashing on their exclusive self proclaimed Thursday evening territory. The situation was aggravated by the impostor being a member of the infamous Botha's Hill Gang.
Tha Teacha had to contend with loud tongue lashings aimed at expelling the Botha's Hill Gang member leaving her with no choice but to seriously reprimand the TP Gang for their raucous behaviour in order for her scrapping instructions to be clear - not that the TP Gang members ever pay attention to Tha Teacha's rules and instructions.
To aggravate matters even more, another Botha's Hill Gang member aka 'Shelley the Perfectionist' pitched up to purchase some scrapping papers. Needless to say that the TP Gang members' blood pressure shot through the roof.
Proceedings turned for the worse when one of the more decent TP Gang Members aka Quilt Queen requested a quick private one-on-one advice session in the Dining Room regarding a mini album wedding gift for her daughter's upcoming wedding. The Blue Room door was shut closed by the TP Gang Leader assisted by her fellow gangsters, the Green Mamba and Greek Connection barring one of their own members re-entering.
A sign was hastily fixed to the Blue Room door stating 'NO CRAPERS' meaning no 'gat-KRUIPERS' in Afrikaans, translated back to English meaning 'don't suck up to Tha Teacha'. Fortunately the Botha's Gang Imposter aka 'Most Frequent Visitor to DOING LIFE' came to the rescue of the Quilt Queen.
Instead of the situation turning back to decent, the party became seriously rough with accusations running rife. Tea break could not have arrived sooner and the emotions became stable again. The Botha's Hill gate crasher earned some serious brownie points with the TP Gang (no hard feelings) when she presented a plate of scrumptious CHOCOLATE CRUNCHIES baked personally by her. The plate of crunchies did not even had time to hit the table as the TP Gang of commando worms polished the crunchies in a blink of the eye. Whilst licking their fingers, the TP Gang immediately demanded the recipe as a peace offering. Tha Teacha would like to warn the Botha's Hill Gang that there are sure signs of a walk over looming.
{The last crunchie rescued from the chomping jaws of the TP Gang Leader!}
So, to keep the peace here's the recipe and Tha Teacha would like to add that DOING LIFE visitors are free to try out this recipe - it is really the most divine Chocolate Crunchies.
CHOCOLATE CRUNCHIES (Michelle Ramsay - Botha's Hill Gang Member) 2 cups flour, 2 cups oats, 2 cups coconut , 1 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cocoa, 250g margarine, 3 teaspoons baking powder, Mix all dry ingredients together. Melt margarine and add to dry ingredients, mixing well. Press into greased tray (I use my oven tray) and bake for 25 minutes at 160°C.
