Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you so much for your super comments about ATS - it is a BAP if there ever was one!! It seems that I really enjoy doing larger pieces - I guess it's the challenge of the piece "me or the stitching.... who will persevere!!"
I had quite a few emails about the who hounds in the laundry.. It is really only Lolly and Smokie that like to cuddle down in the warm fresh stuff. In fact Lolly has second sight when it comes to me doing the wash. She can be totally asleep upstairs and not even noticing me dragging the red hamper out the door to take down to our laundry room. But, the minute I have something warm from the dryer to be folded she is there just wagging her tail for all she's worth. So I dump out the finished laundry into a chair or onto the couch and like a bullet she is on it and wriggling down to the depths of warm bliss. I think since Lolly is Smokie's chew hound he has just learned that laundry=warm place so he also flings himself into the pile of warmth. I'll just pull things out and from under them until everything is folded and I have two sad faced little hounds without warm clean laundry to be on.
I did a little baking on Sunday afternoon and wanted to mention the site from whence (how often can one use the word whence) it came. I found the recipe for "Double Chocolate Brownies" on a great Blog called "The Misadventures of Mrs. B" The recipe is super easy and you end up with a pan of deliciously chewy Brownies. You can click HERE for the recipe. I got together the ingredients...
....... sifted together the dry stuff....
....stirred it up and poured the very stiff batter into a parchment lined pan - the recipe calls for lining the pan with foil, but I like parchment better - and about 30 minutes later out of the oven popped some super delicious Brownies!!
Although the recipe did not call for them I would think 3/4 cup of nuts would add immensely to these, but other than that it is a great treat!! Give them a try! and a BIG thank you to Jen for the wonderful recipe!!
That's about it for today sports fans! Thanks again for stopping by do stop again!
