As I stepped inside, a warm chocolatey goodness overcame me. It was raining outside and very cloudy. The day held something melancholy in it. I had been active most of the day riding my bike and writing on my blog. So, I think a brownie is in accord with my efforts, though somewhat counter-productive. I try and weigh the chocolate equally with bananas and healthier brownie ingredients.
After my brownie goodness, I walked into the cool winds of Kansas, blowing against my face like a Mexican desert wind.
As I walked down the long row of benches lining the sidewalk I saw the City Hall sign. It hung there in a melancholy state as if it hadn’t been ready for another Monday either. I was on a quest to return my inter-library loan books to our small library. Being Monday the library and coincidentally the city hall building was locked, no surprise there. Thankfully, there is a drop box for books. As I gingerly shoved the books through the slot I felt the heat from the metal flit across my fingers angrily.
After making several laps around town to burn calories I returned to my house for a protein-rich lunch of egg and toast. My water intake I have been increasing which has lead me to be more energetic. Also, I think my XHIT workouts and walking has been helping considerably.
Though I have been cutting calories and watching what I eat.
When it all boils down, I’m human, imperfect and have a flawed will.
-And I crave brownies.
Brownies have been a part of my baking repertoire for quite some time. I find that they are easy to make and will satisfy just about any crowd. I myself am a huge fan of their chocolatey goodness. As previously noted I have been a huge fan of muggable desserts which does not involve mugging, no pun intended.
I have found an abundance of recipes almost a recipe for any mood or event you’re having. It’s a sure-fire way to satisfy your inner cravings with just a little portion.
