Brownie Goodness

I know I said I wasn't going to do any more posts until after we moved but I made this dessert tonight that was too delicious to keep to myself!

Brandon and I had a hard day today. Go here to read why. So I was feeling upset and thought chocolate might make me feel better. I had a box of brownie mix and decided to make them. As soon as the thought hit me I had another: I should heat up some bananas and blueberries in brown sugar and put that on top of the brownie. And I should top it all with whipped cream!

For some semblance of a recipe here are the steps:

Make brownies according to box or make your own.
Once the brownies have mostly cooled start on the fruit:
Slice however much banana you want and toss in a pot with about the same amount of blueberries.
Add brown sugar and vanilla to taste.
Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until berries pop, about 5-7 minutes.
While the fruit is cooking make the whipped cream:
Beat cold cream until frothy and then add powdered sugar to taste (you don't need much.)
Beat until stiff peaks form.
Slice a brownie, top with fruit and whipped cream.

I have no photos because I was too focused on the food. Maybe I will make this again and be prepared. As a side note: the fruit would make a great pancake or waffle topping!

We are moving at the beginning of the month. Our roommate needed to move out and we still had no jobs so we talked to my parents about moving back in with them. Not the most wonderful of situations but it beats having to find another roommate and job hunt like crazy to make rent. Living with my parents will enable us to save up for our move up north for school.

For this reason I doubt I will be doing any posts until mid-June. We have some major packing to do and I just don't think I will have the time. Hopefully, once we get settled in I can start blogging again (as long as my computer does not blow up again!) I don't know if anyone really cares but I have been enjoying this blog and I missed being able to post something because my computer stopped working.

Farewell for now!

Please Wait While we Return you to Your Regularly Scheduled Program...

I realize that it has been quite a while since my last post. The reason for this is school. I have been working on this huge paper for my Aesthetics of Film class and doing nothing else for the last several weeks. The only reason I am writing this post is because my brain needs a break every now and then.

It is due tomorrow.

God willing I will be done.

I may cry :(

Soon after I hope to have a new post about something yummy ( I have several ideas!) Thanks to those who actually read my blog!
