True story, this how my Saturday morning went, kind of ashamed but it is a daily struggle that I go through.
So I had a craving for something sweet and I had the itch to bake. I love to bake. Back in high school it would be nothing for me to bake banana bread, banana cream pie and a cheese cake all in one night. This is what happened with my craving:
I wasn’t going to leave the house so I had to find something to bake with what I had on hand. Ohhhh, I have brownie mix, the search for brownie ______ was on.
After an extensive search on Pinterest I decided on Browine Batter Frosting and it was made.
Hmmmm I still have half the bag of brownie mix left, I should just mix it up and bake it, so I did. Hmmm, that is a lot of chocolate and it could really use something else, like a caramel something else.
Now the search is on for a homemade caramel sauce. I could find lots of receipes but…I had no heavy cream 😦 Wait, what is this that I see… A receipe that replaces heavy cream with coconut milk! I have coconut milk! Caramel sauce is made.
Holes poked in brownies and caramel is poured over, let is cool and top it off with the frosting. Mmmmm, I can’t wait for the kids to take a nap so I can devour the whole pan myself. For now I will just take a forkful or two…
Hmmmm it, taste good, but not satisfying. Maybe another forkful, hmmmm, yup still not quite doing it. One more forkful, yup that’s it, my stomach hurts! You know what would taste good veggie juice. What?? Veggie juice? Did I really just think that, what is going on with me? I would rather have veggie juice then a brownie.
Moral of the story, trust the process. I have been having my Shakeology everyday, eating healthier (for the most part) and just recently started drinking veggie juice. Now I would prefer to have veggies over a brownie, I never thought that day would come.
Love Always … Tam
Ps. After I realized I wanted veggies instead of brownies I tossed the whole pan in the trash and made some veggie juice. Moving Forward.
