Food, food, glorious food!

{I know three posts in one day is a bit presumptuous, but just let me have my fun! I promise this time the house is actually clean and I am not shirking on any duties!}

Last night we were invited to a mini fondue party at Becky’s house. They are moving and will be very missed. At church, Ian gave her the mopey face and said we didn’t spend enough time together while they lived here. So she instantly thinks of fondue-ing (because we had been talking about it forever!!!) We were in charge of bringing some decadent items to dip in chocolate. Her husband requested brownies so I whipped some up. I was going to buy a box and make those, but decided against it because they are always gooey, which not always a bad thing, but when you are trying to dip, it will inevitably always fall off the fork. I was just going to buy some brownie bites, but decided against that because sometimes they can be a bit too expensive and not always taste the greatest. I found a recipe that I have had forever, but have only made once. I will post this scrumptious recipe on Friday…so you will just have to wait and see.

The fondue was sooooooooooo good….(did you get how good it was?) and the company was even better. They had invited another one of our favorite families over last minute and so of course we stayed too late, talking, laughing and watching all of our boys do laps around the house playing with each other.We most definitely did not need a whole pan of brownies to dip so I only brought half the pan.

That brings me to today. Tonight we are going to another friend’s house (I am really not trying to brag and make it seem like we are the popular party people…it’s just lately that we have been so busy with fun-ness) for a St. Patrick’s Day feast. She is making corned beef and cabbage (I haven’t ever had it so I am excited (scared)) to try it. I am bringing green chicken alfredo (that is our family tradition), rosemary foccacia and the rest of the brownies. Is that tacky to recycle already been partied, uneaten brownies? Who knows. All I know is that these brownies are soooooooooooo good (got it?) and it was dangerous not to share the rest of them. I gave them a makeover and added a cream cheese peanut butter frosting. Of course I had to die it green and make it fabulous.
Isn’t this the best green colored frosting you have ever seen??? {It looks totally disgusting, but is very delish!}

Ian was very affraid to try it, but once he knew it was peanut butter, there was no holding him back. And there was no holding Liam back from eating 2 whole spoon fulls of the the frosting itself and then a little sliver of the brownie.
