Caramel Brownies

My dinner guests didn't seem to mind either =)
So I ran a mile yesterday.  At 12:30 in the afternoon.  It was 85 F.  Needless to say, it was pretty brutal.  I managed to finish it in 9:39, so I guess that's not bad for starters, right?  It's a tad bit cooler today so maybe I won't feel like death afterwards.

I feel like such a baby complaining about 1 measly mile!  I know a lot of you run on a constant basis and are probably laughing at my pathetic complaints, so I'll try to keep them at a minimum =)

Anyway, this isn't the best picture ever, but frankly.   I couldn't not share this with you.  I should have been more patient and let the brownies firm up a bit more in the fridge (so that they would actually be photogenic - but nothing a scoop of vanilla ice cream can't fix), but instead, they were a big gloopy mess.  The tastiest pile of gloop I've ever eaten.  So yeah, make the brownies, let them set in the fridge (or not), and come and thank me. 

The recipe is from Mel's Kitchen Cafe (who's picture is WAY better than mine - go ahead, go check it out!)

The only thing I changed about it was that I didn't use pecans.  Instead, I topped my brownies with rainbow sprinkles, crushed walnuts, and a mixture of white & dark chocolate chips.  I was feeling a little gluttonous with the toppings. 

But anyway, have a great Wednesday guys!  And don't forget, tomorrow is the CSA round-up so if you feel like joining in, e-mail me at mtlabor85@yahoo.com!  Thanks again for stopping by =)

  1. Looks pretty darn good to me! I certainly wouldn't turn it away.

    And I think your run time is great! It was really hot and sticky yesterday so I admire anyone willing to get out and exercise in that weather. Keep up the good work!

  2. Congratulation Peggy! I'm not a runner, I'm more of a jogger and as much as I try to run, I just can't. For me, your time is great!! Way to go!
    As for the brownie, you're too hard on yourself, looks pretty darn good!

  6. That looks like a delicious delicious mess--and way better than some of the more "photogenic" foods (I like to live by the rule--the messier it is, the better it tastes). And woo for running! Heck, if you're happy with it, that means it's a good run!

  17. Listen, when you run you've gotta start somewhere. Good job for even starting! And the perfect way to burn off the calories from that amazing brownie.

  27. One mile! Oh I have got to step up my game. I bicycled around the block like twice yesterday and had pretty much forgotten how to ride one (that saying is so not true!). We are working to add more physical activity to our routine and your 9.39 mile sounds great to me! Kudos!
