23 december

The first day of winter break. Which means lazy days filled with the boys and staying home. Sigh.

I got to sleep in and have some really weird dreams. Nancy's wedding gown had a pettitcoat which rotated as she walked. I told you!

Ryan is playing less wii in favor of watching Boomerang channel. The Flintstones are a favorite.

Dad bought plain cheerios. I would eat them but then decided to make some cookies or treats with them. I need some marshmallows to make cheerios treat bars. They are similar to Rice Crispies Treats but a bit healthier.

I thought the treat idea was an excuse to go get marshmallows and perhaps stop by Starbucks. But I was too lazy and didn't take a shower until lunch time.

So I made brownies instead. I thought about making some different brownies but Martha's recipes didn't inspire me. I made the double chocolate brownies but then sprinkled HEATH BITS 'O BRICKLE on top. I am not a brownie purist. I do like small nuts. I don't like frosting. (Hmm... the web recipe says not to use Dutch process cocoa but her Martha Stewart's Cookies: The Very Best Treats to Bake and to Share (Martha Stewart Living Magazine) says to use it. I do use and my brownies are thicker as a result. Just as tasty.)
