Two Chinese Pitache, two Jacaranda trees and a Cork Oak
He took out a dead Sycamore and replaced it with a pine tree in the back. He has grown all of these trees from seeds. So that makes it fun to plant them here.
We might get rain. Lots of rain. I am pretty excited about it. Snow in the mountains too. It would be so nice to get lots of rain.
This weekend I baked some lovely brownies. You know I don't share recipes very much, because there are so many food blogs that do a better job than me taking pictures but this is a keeper kind of recipe so I thought I would share it today.
19 1/2 ounce brownie mix. ( I baked mine from scratch.)
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup plus 6 T. butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
Prepare and bake brownie mix in a greased 13x9 baking pan according to package directions.
Mix together powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter and peanut butter, spread over cooled brownies. Chill one hour.
Melt together chocolate chips remaining six tablespoons of butter, ( I just used a whole cube) over low heat, stirring occasionally spread over brownies. ( I also zapped the butter and chocolate chips in the microwave in one minute intervals stirring well until it was all melted.) I just poured that on top. Let cool and cut into squares.
Have a lovely day,
