I'm very busy and important, that's why I had time to highlight this morning's activity. I actually saw this little toast press you could buy to do this to toast awhile ago. I rolled my eyes....not because it's not genious, but because it's sooooo not necessary to buy a punch to create this game board.
I took a sharaded knife and I cut a tic tac toe board. I didn't slice all the way through, just about halfway so I would have my grooves.
I toasted to my desired 'brown.' AKA: How patient I feel like being on any given morning before I press the toast back up b/c I'm tired of waiting.
I cut little pads of butter into fourths, and used a spoon and a drop of jelly for my alternative letter. You could do this with fruit pieces too, but really, you probably won't do this at all b/c it's possible it won't make your priority list. And when I say "you"....I'm actually speaking to *you* and not any alternative personalities housed in my body, they are all for tic tac toast, and they'll probably play every morning. I hope my boss accepts extensive and important tic tac toast games as a legitimate excuse....Back to the toast....cut, brown, collect 'game pieces'....
And then....you play with your food. Tic Tac Toast is very interesting when you play alone. It's bad when you outsmart yourself. Butter wins every time. Butter would. Try it sometime. It's going to totally change your marriage, your relationship with your kids, and the octive of your dog's bark. Or not. I promise not to post for another 24 hours. I can't promise I won't teach this to *your* child if I babysit.
