this week i…{part iv}

July 29, 2011

1. Ate lemon-braised chicken with beans everyday for lunch. Leftovers rock my face.

2. Spent a lot of time rearranging furniture and oohing over some new additions to our house, especially the long wooden desk that I am now doing all of my blogging from.

3. Started reading this book for my book club. I’ve snorted out loud a few times.

4. Remembered how good these brownies are when someone else again made them and wrote to tell me about it. I love that stuff. You there reading? You make this really fun, especially when you say hello. So thanks.

5. Ate my body weight in peanut butter on toast.

6. Thought longingly about Autumn and baking things filled with cinnamon and nutmeg…then slapped myself in the face for ever wishing away a summer day.

7. Drank a lot of Pimm’s.

8. Had cereal for breakfast and dinner in one day.

9. Welcomed my best friend in the world and her lovely beau to the U.S. from England. They’ll be here ten glorious days for frolicking in Minneapolis, up north, and in Chicago. I’ll be blogging still, don’t you worry.

Read Part I, Part II, and Part III.

I think we were on the same page with many things.

Like, for example, having cereal for breakfast and dinner.

Or eating body weight in peanut butter.

Some things like this are totally necessary now and then. ;)

Is it bad to want these brownies at 8 am in the morning?? :)

Never a bad thing my friend.

These brownies are sitting at home, right now as we speak, in a pan. Begging to be eaten. I am in love! I used York mints to give them a little minty pizazz, although next time I might just use peppermint extract.

Lovely! Thank you for all of your fabulous recipes.

That’s amazing! So glad to hear it and I hope you love them as much as I do! Checked out your blog by the way – so lovely!

If you think peanut butter toast is great, try peanut butter on sliced apples… to die for!
