This is what happens when…

you’re nearly 7 months pregnant and need a chocolate fix. Brownies are made from scratch. And then your husband accuses you of lying and saying they must be from a box… (nice, real nice Schwartz).

Why would I need to lie about that – look how insanely easy it is to make them: http://www.food.com/recipe/betty-crocker-fudge-brownies-homemade-496992. It took 5 minutes. Why does everyone buy them in a box?!

They were delicious. So delish I may need to wander back downstairs right now and get a little piece before I hit the hay (shhh, let’s see if I can do it without the hubby noticing! he he he).

A few things…

Our weekend consisted of sleeping, cooking, painting, work and me having a slight emotional breakdown Saturday morning… (what a nice way to start off the weekend, right?!  Poor Geo). All in all it was a really nice weekend, one that went by far too quickly! Here’s a quick snippet of it:

I woke up this morning knowing we just had to go out to breakfast and indulge, so that is exactly what we did. Sam’s on the harbor sure knows how to make a blueberry pancake –  yum.

Next up is me FINALLY getting around to making this “No Bake Peanut Butter Pie” that I bought all the ingredients to LAST week. Once I finally did make it, and it literally took 15 minutes to do, I couldn’t believe I’d put it off for so long. It was pretty delish. If I were to do it again though I may not freeze it… the filling was so delicious when it was light and fluffy. Not sure I enjoyed it as much frozen.

The biggest project of the weekend was painting our bedroom. While Geo was working I got everything situated, was feeling good about it and then made the big mistake of sitting on our bed to read a Facebook message… next thing I know the struggle to get up was VERY real. Eventually I did get up and we made some real headway today. Go us 🙂

I’m very exited about the short work week ahead – if anyone has any “must try” Thanksgiving dessert recipes, I’d love to hear them! I’m in need of a little something to bring to my family’s house.

Have a wonderful night!

A for effort?

Um, yea – one thing does not look like the other…

What it was suppose to look like:

I know I was using the wrong kind of bowl but I really didn’t expect it to end up looking like this? AND, more importantly, it didn’t taste very good. #CookingFail

Better luck next time! At least I had this delicious cup of coffee to get me through the experience 🙂
