Burdens

burdenI don’t understand why some of you burden yourselves. Life is hard enough that we don’t have to add unnecessary baggage. Like, why do I have to buy the organic egg vs. the regular egg? The organic salad vs. the regular salad? And what’s wrong with tap water? 100 yrs ago we couldn’t have dreamed of buying water and yet here we are. I bet you they ain’t tripping over water in Africa though, or in some third world country where they drink water you wouldn’t even bathe in. Goldberg gonna be selling you air next though, then there’s gonna be a debate about which air tank is the healthiest. There is just so much more important things in the world to worry about than what we choose to carry. Sometimes it’s not the load that breaks us down, it’s both how we choose to carry the load and the load we choose to carry.

3. Now, this recipe is for extra fudge, chocolate chip brownies. So at this point you are going to take your chocolate chips and place them into a greased baking pan. I like to use the muffin pan (as those of you who are familiar with this blog already know), but you can do the same thing for a regular one sheet baking pan as well. Grease the pan and place the chocolate chips down first. I used Hershey’s Baking Melts, round flat chocolates, and placed them at the bottom of the greased pan.

 
4. Pour brownie mix from step #2 into greased baking pan, spread evenly. (For chocolate layered brownies, pour some of the mix into the pan first, then the chocolate chips, and then pour the rest of the mix in last.)

5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes. High Altitude Baking: Add 2 Tbsp of water. Yield: 12 (1.75 x 1.75) bars. To make 8 x 8 pan use (1 lb) of mix and bake for 30- 35 minutes at 325 degrees F. For richer brownies, substitute melted butter or margarine for oil.
