Tonight we had some family over for the Flyers-BlackHawks game (for those of you who are not following the playoffs…this is the final round of the NHL stanley cup playoffs—winner takes the cup- tonight was Game 1).  The game was interesting to say the least. The Flyers ended up losing 5-6….laviolette (flyers coach) pulled our goalie (leighton) for boucher in the second period….did not really agree with that decision… what do you think? although it was disappointing to lose Game 1…it looks like the series is going to be a good one and I cant wait to see them back in action on monday.

I saw a recipe for brownies on  IowaGirl’s blog…it looked delicious so I decided to make it for the game tonight….

In a glass mixing bowl, combine:

• 3/4 cups melted Butter
• 4 squares un-sweetened baking Chocolate*
Microwave Butter and Chocolate until melted (on high about 2 minutes)


• 2 cups Sugar, then mix
• 3 large Eggs, then mix
• 1 tsp. Vanilla
• 1 cup Flour, then mix
• 1 cup large Walnut pieces and chunks of premium-grade Bar Chocolate (Gently fold in – don’t over-mix)** this is optional…I did not do this.

Stir Sugar into Chocolate until well blended – stir in Eggs and Vanilla, mix in Flour, stir in Nuts and Bar Chocolate. Pour into a 9×9 buttered baking dish and bake 35 minutes or longer and 350° until toothpick in center comes out with fudgy crumbs (do not over-bake).

Place brownies on an appropriate serving dish. Zap briefly in the microwave oven. Remove. Bury each brownie with a generous scoop of premium vanilla ice cream, then ladle on fresh raspberries or another favorite fresh seasonal fruit.

my mom made a great dinner….marinated pork tenderloin, roasted veggies, grilled lime and cilantro sweet potatoes  and a salad…I thought the salad was pretty so I took a photo haha:
before the game we took the pups on the beach…

hahha so funny!!!

Hope you are all enjoying your memorial day weekend….time to get to bed…. 10K race in the morning!!!
