I’m beginning to really enjoy Wednesdays…

It tells me that my week is half over.

I get to watch Lucy.

Clark and Joel get to have playdates.

I get to watch the toddlers at church.

(who is that crazy kid in the red shirt?!  Someone needs to control him….)

And lately, it’s been my fun baking day!  I don’t have to cook a meal for dinner since we eat at the church on Wednesday nights, so I’m freed up to bake to my own desire….which is what I really love to do.  I don’t mind cooking….but my heart really falls for baking.  And there is a difference.  A BIG difference in my opinion.  One  I do to fill my family’s bellies (cooking).  The other I do because it fills up my heart (baking).

And on this line of thinking…and as an early plug, I want to let you know that I (and some others…ok, maybe, just one other <<wink, wink>> Kris) will be doing some baking and selling our goodies.  at the church.  for the Youth.  April 25th.  Mark it on your calendar and bring your cash (or your checkbooks!) 😀  What would you be willing to buy for a quick simple breakfast?  Got any ideas or suggestions?  Let me know!!

Here’s what I got to make today:

Fudgey Brownies

  • 1 1/3 c butter
  • 2 2/3 c sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c baking cocoa
  • 2 c flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs, vanilla, and salt.  Add cocoa, slowly, so that it doesn’t come back up on you!  Now add flour, 1/2 cup at a time.  Blend well and spread into 9×13 greased pan.  Dough will be very thick.  Now you can pop them into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or you can top with your favorite toppings.  Today I added chocolate chips over the whole pan and then on half I add a few peanut butter chips and pecans (my favorite) and then on the other half I drizzled on some caramel sauce.  It’s pretty much up to you on what you can put on top!  Or you can leave it with no toppings.  Or after you bake them you can dust them with powdered sugar.  Or you can top them with a thick chocolate frosting….oh the possibilities are endless!!
