That dessert last week was simply amazing! My Husband and friends all enjoyed it and now, 3 days later, we are stilllll eating it! Of course it’s not as fresh as it once was, but damn is it good.  I won’t be making it again anytime soon because it’s so dangerous! Lol.  Here’s a few pictures of it I took on Friday night:

That’s pre-brownie batter…

Delicious!!  Although, I wonder if it might have been better with 2 boxes of chocolate chip cookie mix on the bottom? That layer was rather thin and hard to spread out, but it rose nicely when baked so I guess it was ok after all. A small piece was all that was needed to satisfy!

This week’s culinary adventures consist of baked garlic and herb chicken drumsticks with roasted Brussels sprouts and baked potatoes. Did I take a picture of said dinner? Um no.. I kinda forgot. You can certainly SMELL the chicken in the house still! Unfortunately, it’s still hot and humid outside and I can’t open the windows to air out the house. Tonight, I will be making turkey schnitzels with peas, potatoes with lovely dill sauce. I will definitely be taking pictures of that for another post. It’s a recipe my father came up with, though I started making it with ground turkey instead of beef and loved it so much, I decided to keep making it that way.

My parents are on a road trip this week so we have a little lodger in the house,  Katy!  She is my quality control checker for all my meals. She likes to give the paw of approval to whatever I cook.  She might be mostly deaf and blind in one eye, but she still has good taste!

All tuckered out after a long day of watching me in the kitchen! 

Time for chocolate milk now!  Yes, that craving is still going strong.

Fridayyyy!

Dont`cha love the Pollock-esque flair to my ketchup flinging?  I sure do!

Here’s the finished product:

It was pretty darn tasty, if I don’t say so myself.  I didn’t really make anything else that was pretty enough to take pictures of. Please excuse my dirty oven (hopefully you didn’t notice it before I said anything, but now you’re going to go look again hmm, should have kept my mouth shut lol) It’s overdue for a cleaning!  I’m having some friends over tonight and I am really looking forward to making a new dessert. Everyone who knows me knows I have ZERO skills in the baking department, I mean I burn SLICE AND BAKE cookies for god’s sake! My husband is the baker in the family, he never burns a thing.  Jerk.  Kidding!! Love ya honey!! Anyhoo, I’m making a chocolate chip, Oreo, brownie cookie bars!  Yes, you read that right, allllll of them in one pan!  Of course it’s a recipe from another food blog I read, it was actually on How Sweet It Is a few weeks ago, and I knew I HAD to try making it at least once. I even bought vanilla ice cream to go on top. Let me share the drool worthy pictures with you.. http://www.kevinandamanda.com/recipes/new-recipes/ultimate-chocolate-chip-cookie-n-oreo-fudge-brownie-bar.html

Just redonkulous!  I can’t wait to eat it, hopefully I don’t burn any of it! Just in case, I am lowering the temperature a bit!  MMM *droool* Oh wait…you totally need to see a picture of this:

I borrowed that picture from the How Sweet it is blog, I hope she doesn’t mind!  I’m new to this blogging thingie….

Back to the preggo talk for a hot minute, I had my Glucose Tolerance test yesterday and had to drink a lovely bottle of this concoction:

Doesn’t it look tasty? The first sip isn’t so bad, it’s like a super sweet orange drink that tasted pretty good since I was really thirsty by this time, but after an hour of sitting there, I began to get a horrible headache and felt like I was hungover the rest of the day! Yuck!  Hopefully I passed and won’t have to go back for the 3 hour one. I don’t want to drink that stuff again really!  Keep your fingers crossed for me!  Oh, and that Boppy body pillow is just….meh.  It does help a bit but I think it’s kind of annoying to keep straight and when you’re flipping around from side to side in bed it get’s irritating. Oh well, can’t return it either!  Hopefully I will get more comfy with it as the days go on.

Is it time to bake yet????
