Terry got up and fed Marin breakfast so I could lay in bed for a bit...that is always a good start to the weekend.
I got up and got dressed, then we were off to Byerly's. My favorite Byerly's is the one by the old Planet Ford; but I forgot Highway 100 was closed today past 394 until I got past 55. I exited at Glendale, then we meandered around the side roads/frontage roads until we got to that Byerly's. I was okay with that, lazy Saturday with no where to really be.
We got lots of nice help from the employees as we were looking for specific items, then when we were checking out the nice checkout lady said, "So did you have trouble with 100 closed, or did you just come down Louisiana?" Uh, yeah! That's what I did...on the way home! I am so goofy sometimes when I forget that there is a simpler way. I always make it harder somehow.
* pause, OH SH**!
Like just now when I realized that I had a pan of brownies ready for the oven on the counter and for sure the oven is pre-heated after 15 minutes or so! I am making a recipe I found on Simondelivers in honor of Halloween. Enjoy! I will let you know how they turn out later.
Brownies with caramel are baked in a round pan, frosted, and decorated to look like a spider web. Halloween fun!
|AND I had a pumpkin platter!|
SERVES: 12 <-yeah, right, twelve.
PREP TIME: 5 Minutes
COOK TIME: 30 Minutes
1 package Brownie Mix for an 8 or 9 inch pan1 tub White FrostingBlack Decorating Gel - or - 1/4 cup Chocolate Frosting
Follow directions on box to prepare the brownies. Bake in a ROUND 8 or 9 inch pan instead of a square one. Cool.
Remove brownie from pan and place on serving plate. Frost with your choice of white frosting.
Make a spiral of decorating gel or chocolate frosting onto the white frosting. Note: If using chocolate frosting, put into one corner of a ziptop bag. Snip the very, very end of the bag to create a piping bag.
Pull a toothpick through the spiral from the middle to the outer edges about every inch or two to make the spider web. Serve with a cold glass of milk and other Halloween Treats.
