Were you a “Brownie” when you were a kid? I was But, today I’m talking real brownies – not girl scouts.
Today was my last day in the office and I wanted to bake something as a farewell to my co-workers. I work in a very fun office and have a lot of good friends there.
I found this mix at the store – on sale! It’s organic and whole wheat, a very relatively healthy dessert from yours truly for my peeps. Oh, and I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil since it’s all we had! Nature’s Path makes a lot of really good organic products and this is another one I ended up really enjoying!
I bought 2 boxes and made a double batch.
Which I had to sample of course…they came out great, if I do have to say so myself
Here is the nutrition info: 150 calories for a homemade brownie is really good, but this run down doesn’t include the 3 Tb. of oil the recipe calls for (you only have to add oil and water).For my last day my co-workers through me a “Surprise” farewell party. I knew about it and staged this picture…ha.
Since most of them were not able to attend the wedding (monetary restraints prevent you from inviting everyone – boo) they showed the slide-show of my wedding pictures. I think most people liked it and weren’t too bored! It actually was very sad, my boss/friend started crying when she hugged me and it was hard for me to keep it together I’m not a bigger crier (have you picked up on that yet?), but I absolutely hate good-byes whether it’s me leaving or someone else.
Oh, and my cubemate Chris kept playing sad videos like this all day – he was determined to make me cry. Well, until he played N’Sync “Bye Bye Bye” and that was just funny. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yb2NW3QfonI]
I went to one last lunch at my favorite vegetarian restaurant in the area…The Spot. It claims to be world famous, I don’t know if that’s true, but it is pretty good. I’ll post a review on it tomorrow since SoCal is a tourist destination and some of you may get the opportunity to sample this place See ya manana!!!
