Thank you for the super nice comments on my last post.
Did your menfolk have a nice Father’s Day? We did. I feel so thankful that the boys and I are surrounded by wonderful men who love us and take good care of us. We are blessed x10.
The boys and I baked brownies with a secret ingredient. Are you ready for it?
I was excited because the recipe uses no flour or butter. It has a lot of sugar (but we’ll ignore that for now).
It was quite an ordeal though because we baked a whole batch before I realized that we forgot to add eggs. Oops.
Then I baked a second batch (the boys abandoned me by this point). The trick to these is to blend everything really well so that you don’t accidentally bite into a bean part. Then, your ruse would be up! Unfortunately, half way through, the blender started smoking and burned out!
I transferred everything to a big pot and used an immersion blender. MUST. COMPLETE. BROWNIES.
This is right before I spilled the vanilla EVERYWHERE.
I love my cute measuring cups.
Here are the brownies right before they went into the oven.
And after… they look like regular brownies, right?!!
Now all you have to do is gobble them up.
Speaking of gobbling, we ate SO MUCH this weekend. My diet (re)starts RIGHT NOW.
Oh, and how is my embroidering going you ask?
Super! Embroidery is so much faster than cross stitching. It’s fun, but I do miss the precision of cross stitching. There’s just something about those little Xs.
