I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving like we did. We spent Thanksgiving with my husband’s family in Oregon. Lots of fun and good food!
Saturday night we threw a 50’s party for his parents celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Like any big gathering, it involved a lot of planning, decorating, shopping, cleaning, work, stress, last minute trips to the store, and cussing. Just kidding about the cussing. It all came together though, and was a success. The decorations were cute, the music was great, the ice cream bar was a huge hit, and I think everyone had fun. It was exhausting though, so I’m glad I get a ten year rest before I need to throw one for my parents.
Yesterday we drove home. It is a ten hour drive. Today I am washing mountains of laundry and cleaning my filthy house so we can put up our Christmas decoration. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? I’m sure you are all jealous. Anyway, on to the recipe for the day. . .
I of course did not make these brownies today because I am up to my elbows in laundry. I actually made it last week for a family night we had with some of our friends. It is a favorite treat from when I was a little girl. My mom used to make them often, especially if we were having company for dinner. They look like you fussed, but are quite easy to make. They are moist and chewy with just the right amount of chocolate.
1 cup soft butter or margarine
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2oz unsweetened chocolate, melted
