I found these plates and bowls a couple of weeks ago, I got six plates, six bowls for $44, including tax. Is this a great deal or what???? The oversized square plates are wonderful, I'm going to take them for a spin this weekend when Ry and Linds come home.
I used to think sunflowers were summer, but that's not necessarily so, I see them used often in fall displays. Love that price!!!!
Yeah, yeah, I know it's a lot of stuff on the table and the sideboard groaning board, I'm a nester, remember? It's the bounty of fall, works for me..... *wink*
I made the black bean brownies, pureed the beans with my immersion blender, baked them in a 9x9 pan - they were thick, they were rich, they were..... GOOD!
I topped them with some sugar free cherry pie filling, a dab of Cool Whip, and YUMMO!!!!!!!!!
For you Weight Watcher types, they were 2 points for a small brownie... Amazing what you can substitute for fat, isn't it??? And no, you would never know there were beans in the brownies. They were totally undetectable. So don't turn up your nose 'til you try them. Gotta go outside your box, girlfriends...
Wonder how this will turn out? I'll let you know....
It's from the WW Message Boards, I've always wanted to try it, today's the day...
1 reduced brownie mix 1 can black beans rinsed well and drained 1 cup water put water into blender with well rinsed and drained beans puree them till smooth.,add to dry brownie mix, mix well prepared as directions on box , bake according to directions. (no one will be the wiser that it has beans in it.) They are like a cake brownie.,
I, MAXINE , being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it, or lawyers / doctors interested in simply running up the bills.
If a reasonable amount (24HOURS) of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:
Chocolate Mexican food ice cream French fries ice cream Pizza
Chocolate ice cream cup of tea Ice cream KFC Chicken
Chocolate Sex ice cream
It should be presumed that I won't ever get better. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, let the "fat lady sing". . and call it a day!
It's now almost 11pm, Sunday evening, and I have added more to milly scraps. I still have about fifteen pages to add, but if you would like to take a look at what I've done so far, go for it. You can access it HERE at millyscraps.com
I gush about the grandkids, post strange, rambling erratic thoughts, embarrass my family and friends and often I sit in the sunshine, drink diet sweet tea and try my best to live in the moment every . single . day . Did I leave anything out? Hey, I'm old(er) now and wiser too. Now if I could just remember what I'm talking about and whom I'm talking to...
