Just Do It Anyway


I already know what you are thinking.  

You shouldn't eat it..... 
It isn't on your diet.......  
Too many calories....... 



But, just do it anyway.  

Bake the brownies, make the frosting, assemble the concoction and take it to a friend.  
Pass them out at work.
Give them to your children or grandchildren.   
Spread a little happiness. 

"Happiness is not something ready made.  It comes from your own actions."  

The Dalai Lama

  15. The Dalai Lama was correct, but for me, my action would be to pass. It does look terrific, however.

  18. Actually I'm quite certain there's nutritional value in there, and any residual calories can be used walking (jogging if you've had 2) around the farmette (lovely photos of your walk).

    Great quote by Charles Kuralt. We'd do well to be thankful for what we have vs whine about what we don't.

  19. Sometimes the best thing is to simply eat and enjoy!

  20. My mouth is watering just looking at that brownie. I was feeling a little disappointed you didn't give the recipe, then realized the title was a link. Not on my diet, but my family will thank you. Nothing better than chocolate and PB unless you add cream cheese...YUMMY. Thanks, I think.

  21. The Dalai Lama may be right, but with my culinary skills I would be a really sad guy... I don't care who cook or bake and I enjoy it vary much anyway!

  22. Oh goodness, that looks delicious :)

  23. Yum! I made smores brownies yesterday. The entire pan is already gone.

  24. Any crumbs left. I'm always late to the party.

  25. Mmmm...if I wasn't on a no sugar, no dairy, no gluten diet I would snarf this down in a heartbeat. Hope you enjoyed it!

  26. This must be healthy. Peanut Butter is good for you. Cocoa comes from a plant as does sugar and vanilla. Butter and cream cheese are great dairy products and we need calcium.

    Yeppers, it's naturally good for you!

    Think I'll have a piece (or three).

  27. Not so sure about the cake, but I like the Dalai Lama quote! Have a nice weekend Michelle!
