Brownies! (and brownie recipes)
The end of 2008, my dad challenged me to stop eating sweets from January through June. I am probably the BIGGEST sweet eater you know! I will eat cookies for lunch! I took dad up on this challenge and I did it! The only sweets I ate was a piece of cake for my Birthday is March, which I let him know I would do when I accepted the challenge. Guess what happened? I lost 7 pounds!
This year, dad and I decided to do it again. Even though he is in NJ and I am in NC, we still have each other and that helps with accountability.
On November 23, 2009 I wrote an article for SendOutCards
They are this great company that send out cards for busy people. Today, I got a package in the mail that contained the sweetest card and a big package of BROWNIES! Yes, sweet, chocolaty BROWNIES! Keep in mind, I am not eating sweets. However, I felt that I should taste one so that I can properly send her a thank you note. I know, bless my heart...too bad for me right?
Well, these brownies are so rich and moist and taste better than ANY brownie I have ever tasted! Can it be because I have not eaten sweets since the day after Christmas? Maybe. But I am so thankful that Michelle thought of me! Thank you so much Michelle!
If you guys want a great brownie...try one from SendOutCards!
OR try one of these great recipes :-)
Lesson learned: Sometimes we should do things to be a blessing to others...as long as it does not hurt anyone or is not immoral :-)
