Churro Brownies

There is a small group of us at work that have been taking turns bringing in weekly treats to get us through these last gross weeks of winter. We've had cheesecake, and cheesecake topped brownies, and apple pie, and cinnamon buns and cupcakes and ice cream and none of this is doing my bod any good but it's been fun to have something to look forward to, and to take a break and have a few laughs over a delicious snack.

For my first contribution I made Churro Brownies from The Homesick Texan.

It isn't really a brownie as there is no chocolate.  But it is sweet and salty and so delicious.

Everyone was impressed and loved it as much as I did.  This is a make again for sure.

My next week to contribute is coming up and I'm stuck trying to think of something.  I found an old recipe of my mom's for fudge and I'm thinking about giving that a try.  I don't ever remember my mom making fudge, so I'm a bit worried about how it will turn out.  But that is part of the fun, isn't it?

Book Club - Unbound by Steph Jagger

2019 - 12 

"What I saw from the little window of my plane was more dramatic than I had even imagined.  My welcome to the country was big and bold, as if ruby-red peacocks had been let loose to dance all over the place, streaking everything in sight with their color."

"Who are you?" he asked "And what kind of woman do you want to become?"

"Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain."

"Imagine what's possible now."


I'm currently stuck in a funk/wallowing in self pity in a bunch of aspects of my life and can't seem to get anywhere with anything.
But now at least my reading list is up to date, so that's something, right?
