happy monday!

Our weekend was packed...with walks collecting wildflowers...
...cuddling and snuggling cute babies...
...admiring the blue skies and dogwoods in bloom...
...the usual household chores...
...and hanging out with friends at the park! :)
This past week I worked really hard to lose baby weight...and I lost a little over 7lbs!!! So I rewarded myself with these tasty brownies...smores brownies! The actual recipe called for making the brownies from scratch...but I turned to good old Betty Crocker instead...threw in a half a package of crushed graham crackers...some chopped up marshmallows...poured that all into a 13 by 9in pan....then placed large marshmallows on top of the batter like so...cook as directed on the box. yummmmm! :) the marshmallows get all toasty. :)
Two things in case you don't know...cut brownies with a plastic knife...the brownies won't stick...and to tell for sure that a cake/brownies are done without jabbing them a million times with a fork in the middle...look along the sides of the pans...the cake is ready when it starts to pull away from the sides. :)

The only bump in the road this weekend was the nasty case of food poisoning that I had all Saturday night...that led to a whole lot of nothing being done on Sunday...so thankful that Doug was home to take care of all of us. :)

Hope your weekend was just as wonderful and as full of sunshine! :)

I saw that recipe, and almost made it myself this weekend.

Congrats on the drop in weight.

I never knew about cutting brownies w/ a plastic knife to stop them sticking, great to know, thanks for that.
Food poisoning sucks, glad you're feeling better now.
I had it saturday night too after eating an apparently rotten egg, DH saw it floating in the water but forgot to tell me... Blech, literally.
Have a happy Monday
