Ladies best friend

Do you have certain times that Chocolate is your best friend?

       Times when you can't think of anything you really want to eat, except chocolate?

How about the only thing better than chocolate, is chocolate with nuts?

     Or something made of moist chocolate and marshmallow?

Well, I got something I need to share with you.

     I have a very complicated recipe that takes for ever to make and takes lots of ingredients

                                                                       to prepare.

But if you are like me these are not the kind of recipes that get made very often.

      So I have taken this recipe and knocked the ingredients down, as well as the time it takes to

                                                                       make and made it super easy and yummy.

Now listen up and I will walk you through it and I am only going to say this once!!

      Take 2 boxes of brownie mix and mix according to directions for chewy brownies.

Pour onto a greased sheet pan with edges. Spread it evenly and bake according to directions.

       10 minutes before they are set, remove from the oven and cover brownies with mini

 marshmallows and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Return to oven and bake till brownies are set and mini's are melted and starting to brown slightly.

Now open a container of dark chocolate fudge frosting and spoon into an micro safe bowl.

       Warm in 15 second intervals till melted (do not burn). After removing brownies from oven, take a large spoon and drizzle as much chocolate over the top as you want.

Here is what they look like when complete:

                As you can see it makes a large pan which is perfect for company or to take to a tailgate or for the "girls night in" that you just might have to throw since you learned how to make these!!

By the way these are called, "Ooey Gooey Rich and Chewy Rocky Road Brownies"

I enjoy your comments and if you are not a follower, now is the time to start. I am having a give away when I get 50 followers so . ....Jump on board and get ready!!

A Strange Find in My Garden

                                          While walking in the garden this morning.

        I decided to take a few minutes to poke and peek around in the squash plants.

Being very careful as I was gently pulling leaves to the left and the right, I found several nice
                                                  yellow squash and zucchini.

                                   But one of them I decided I just had to show you! 

                                                     It is a mutation indeed! 


The photo does not show it but this started out as 2 blooms with 2 stems and then became one.

                              That is what I found in my strange little world!

I always enjoy your comments and don't forget I am having a give away when my followers reach 50. So if you don't follow now is the time to start!!

Have a blessed day everyone.

Green Beans

And lots of them!

Here is what I started out with this morning.

And after washing thru 3 sinks of water.

Then preparing and filling jars.

And working thru canner after canner full of quart jars.
