See, I’m still alive and kicking!
I know, if I was your mother and I disappeared without a word for several, several days then child services would be involved, your hearts would be broken, and I would go to a place that doesn’t know what the heck a whole food is!
But thank goodness I am not your mother so I will not be going there 🙂
So what have I been up to lately – nothing. Absolutely, blissfully nothing!
I have loved every minute of it. Now I did miss you guys but…..
I have to be honest. I had no material. Nope – none!
I haven’t made any new recipes. I haven’t had the desire to make any new ones. Since I was doing nothing, I decided to do nothing on the computer as well. That is except watch Army Wives re-runs on netflix to drown out the boys. Speaking of which – they are at their grandmother’s. They have been there since Monday so that means lots o peace in the house 🙂
But I have been a bad girl 😦
Yep, lots o junk to eat. Now I did eat some good but…..
Mostly bad! With lots of chocolate and candy mixed in as well. So here goes!
Pancakes with coffee of course!
leftovers from date night – snow crab roll & edemame
Lot’s o candy at the movies, along with popcorn, and a coke (gasp, I know right! I almost forgot what coke tasted like) ice cream, frozen yogurt….the bad list goes on and on.
But I did have some good in there……salads, hummus, tomatoes, apples, peanut butter, the usual snacks that are healthy. Oh and I made a nice little treat. You know the “it’s 8:30 p.m. I want something sweet, dessert not candy, so let’s bake brownies”. Only to discover that your fridge is void of eggs, butter, and milk! Yikes!!
So we improvised. I researched several different recipes and adapted a couple to make my wonderful…
Chocolaty Chocolate Brownies

- 1/2c unbleached all purpose flour
- 1/3c cocoa
- 1/2t baking soda
- 1t baking powder
- 1/2t salt

- Make a well in the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients, and mix well

Wonderful! Oh and I may have thrown in some toffee pieces that I had lying in the baking area of the pantry. The hubster loves toffee 🙂 So go bake yourself some brownies, pull up netflix, and enjoy your evening…..
I am off to go back to do absolutely nothing!
