Welp, it's Monday again already. I didn't intend to write exclusively on Mondays, but that's my rhythm these days, I guess.
I've been fighting the cold from you know where for a week now and I'm so over it. Well, you know, not exactly, but in my mind, I've prevailed. I think I'm beginning to feel better, though, because yesterday I not only made a double batch of this soup, but I made a pan of our favorite brownies, too, with a little extra sunthin-sunthin.*
Want the recipe? I thought so.
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1/2 cup premium cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease an 8x8x2-inch pan. In a medium saucepan melt butter or margarine. Remove melted butter or margarine from heat, add cocoa, and stir until well blended. Add sugar and mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Stir in vanilla, flour, and salt. Don't over beat. Fold in nuts. Spread in prepared pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
So, yeah. How was your weekend?
*we happened to have some extra dark chocolate chips on hand, so I threw a couple on top of the batter before plopping it into the oven.
