"Dinner In The Sky is for people who expect more from their restaurants than four concrete walls and a solid floor. Instead, diners perch around a massive table, which is suspended from a crane high up in the air.
It sounds completely insane, but as the most unusual - and entirely legal - way of getting high over dinner, it is the new must-do experience for the super-rich and adventure-hungry who yearn for something a little more extreme at mealtimes. Although based in Belgium, the "restaurant" can be driven to any destination in the world.
There have already been dining events in Paris and Brussels, while New York and Niagara Falls are on the agenda.
What's more, for a mere £10,000, they'll drive it over to Britain for you to host your own sky-high dinner party."

::Definitions of bento box on the Web::
--is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables as a side dish.
¾ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ¼ cup whole wheat flour (you can use all purpose if you have that on hand)
1 jello pudding mix (3.4 oz) – Like I said Vanilla or banana is fine
1 teaspoon salt
1 ¾ cup chocolate chips
*If using banana pudding mix 1-2 bananas (optional)*
--Preheat oven to 350 degrees
--Cream (mix/beat) the butter and sugars together until fully blended
--Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the sugar mixture- mix until once again fully blended
*If using bananas..now would be the time to mash them up add them to the batter.
--In a separate bowl mix the flour, dry pudding mix, baking soda and salt.
--Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well blended:
(do not over mix: once blended completely stop)
--Fold in all of the chocolate chips
--Scoop out tablespoon sized scoops of the batter and roll into small balls. Place on baking sheet, having at least 1 ½ inch spaces between the cookies
(I usually put parchment paper down on my baking sheets so my cookies don’t stick to the pan. The only reason I do this is because my baking sheets are old and crummy lol. If you have nice ones then keep on keeping on!)
--Bake 9-12 minutes
--Remove from the oven. Cool. And serve!!!
Prior to attending culinary school I would search blogs similar to my own for recipes that could teach me the basics – and challenge me when I got the basics down. I hope that mine can do the same for someone out there. Like I have previously stated – I will try and post recipes at different skill levels. I understand that 99.9% of people reading this aren’t pastry chefs, don’t go to culinary school and might cringe at anything more challenging than toast lol. Hell I don’t even know if anyone is testing out my recipes!! (For the sake of this conversation- I’m going to assume someone is…hopefully lol) If you were chefs to be I would be posting recipes like: Pâte à choux, apple strudel, quick breads (etc.) So I will continue to post about snacks, cookies, cakes, breakfast etc. Simple and fun recipes in my opinion! ((If you request a recipe or an explanation for something, or genuinely want to know how to prepare something- I will do my best to guide you…if I can lol))
Well- my work here is done
Have a splended day!
