Chocolatey Goodness

OK, I accidentally lost the post I was just working on. I think it was about how cold I am, sitting by the window in this ancient uninsulated building. But when I talk about nothing so much, it's easy to lose track.

I am currently eating a chicken pot pie. I really want brownies. In the worst way. But I cannot have brownies. Why is this? 1. I don't have an oven, so I can't bake my own. 2. I can't buy them from Wal-Mart or Food Lion or anyplace like that. 3. The places I could buy them from are too expensive for my cheap tastes. I suppose this wouldn't be such a dilemma if I hadn't, ahem, blown it at Old Navy the other day, thereby forcing cutbacks. Sad, isn't it?

I'm at Wal-Mart way too much anyway. Tonight I had to stop for more contact solution and to get some snacks for my manager's Super Bowl party tomorrow. The problem with going late at night is the lines are usually insane; they weren't too bad tonight, though.

Currently, I have P.O.D., "Youth of the Nation," playing. It's interesting how some really good songs came out of the Columbine tragedies. Michael W. Smith has one called, "This Is Your Time," about Cassie Bernall, who is the girl who answered yes when she was asked if she believed in God. She was then shot. I think it's an awesome story, cause I know if I was ever in that position, my body would want to say no, but my Spirit would enable me to say yes.

I'm sitting here looking for a thread to tie my little tidbits together.....sorry, can't find one. Anyone want to send me some brownies?

I'm here from Darlene's blog. Don't they have frozen brownies at Wal Mart? I'd go for anything chocolate. Check out my blog Kick Shoe Kooy, it's the web site button on my blogger profile. Blogger is my family blog--it's fun too.

Hmmm, I hadn't thought about frozen brownies, just the weird ones they sometimes have from their bakery. I'll have to check it out.

Can't do Brownies but my doughter made some very scrummy chocolate chip cookies yesterday (sat) so your welcome to some of those....though they may just be crumbs by the time they reach you....

Hi Nettie,
Farmer's Market Two Bite Brownies!! I don't recall if you can get them in
the States though - it might be a Canadian thing. But we actaully get them
here in Bermuda so life ain't so bad on this little 2 by 4 rock!!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I like yours. My hubby is a pediatrician :)
It's a long road but if you have the drive, you will make it. He loves what he does even though running a busy practice can be stressful. I think he would give it all up and go to missions in Africa tomorrow....but alas, two children to put through school and college - Africa will have to wait. And God still has a lot of work to do on me before I would go over there!!!
Bath and Body Works - awesome!!! You are lucky! Do you get discounts?
Oh well, I am babbling, I haven't had my coffee yet...
Bye for now

I have been on a major chocolate binge, craving brownies or fudge or what have you... I have no idea why.
But, if you get tehse cravings often, I would recommend asking for an easy bake oven for some sort of holiday gift... you can make brownies in that! There was a girl in some dorm in college that had one and was the envy of everyone since she had the power to make things like brownies or cakes when she wanted too... plus one box of brownie mix could last you forever!

Hi Nettie-Thanks for visiting my site! I can only make brownies that are way too gooey to even cut into nice little squares. I long for the day that I can make perfect Martha Stewart brownies! I bet she can even make them from her holding block! I'll be back....

I, too, experience the occasional Wal-Mart late night jaunt. I find myself wandering the aisles looking for anything and everything, rolling back, and filling my cart. Next time you go, don't miss the treats conviently located by the checkout line. There are these little debbie cosmic brownies--mabye you could curb your "expensive" taste and try for only 96 cents, you have nothing to lose...and the candy pieces...well, you'll just have to see for the time I pay my $200.00 bill, I've vowed never to go back again.

I love to bake. I am widely known among friends/family as a fabulous cookie baker. When I get a real hankering for brownies, I buy a box of No Pudge brownie mix--it's truly "no-fat", using only the mix and 2/3 cup of yogurt (so go with no-fat yogurt). Details at

To gussey them up, though, I typically add 2 tablespoons of Godiva liqueur. If I ever decide to become an alcoholic, I'm going to drink only Godiva liqueur. Of course, as expensive as it is, I won't last as an alcoholic very long.

To finish up this rambling comment (you seem to be inspiring more than your share of comment rambling today), the No Pudge brownie mix comes in 4 flavors: original (chocolate, of course), cappuccino, mint and (my favorite) raspberry.

I would go with the Two Bite Brownies, they are to die for. You could seriously go through eight bags in one sitting. Not that I have or anything. I limit my buying to only a few at a time because they are sooooo dangerous. MMMMM brownies. Thanks for making me crave them.

I added you to my list of blogging buddies, hope you don't mind. I admire your ambition, and you seem so wise for your age! You are right about Cassie's story. I didn't realize until recently that we don't have to worry about doing the right thing under similar circumstances. God will give us the grace we need for that moment. Even if we think, "no way", God will give enable us to do the right thing! Keep the faith girlfriend!!!!
Love ya!!!!!

Here is the thread...

In the case of Columbine your body says no, but your spirit says yes. In the case of the brownies, your body says yes and your spirit says no.

Yummy, I love brownies. I am on a "diet" and I cant have them =( and that is one thing I miss the most especially if they have nuts in them. I think I am getting sad. If it's any consolation I would say "yes" also.

oooh, I haven't had a cookie or a brownie for a looooooooong time...

this post makes me hungry

OK, responding in order:
Catherine: Yeah, I get a 30% discount, and whenver we get a new line we get lots of sample3s. Ostensibly so we can tell the customers how well they work.
Blair: Good idea on the Easy Bake. I had to ask for an electric can opener for Christmas, so that's a logical next step, right?
Cori: If Martha Stewart can conduct business from her cell, I'm sure she can make good brownies...

Stacey: Last week Kroger had a sale on Little Debbie cakes, 10 for $10. I don't know how many boxes I even have, half of them are still in my car. I guess the Little Debbies aren't going to do it.
Jeff: I like rambling comment! And doesn't No Pudge take all the fun out of it?
R.W.-I think I made everybody crave them.
Paula- Link away, I added you! I have been called an old soul....most of the time it fits.
Darlene- Thanks for the point, that's so right!
Rhonda and Kopi- I do apologize for making y'all hungry for things you can't have.
Keep 'em coming, y'all!

No, the No Pudge brownies are DEE-LISH-US. And the no-fat lets me eat as many as I want, without the coronary artery plugs. Fat around the waist? Yeah, but no cardiac.

If you say so, Jeff. I know I'm being lulled into a false sense of security and one day I'll wake up with an 85% percent blockage of my coronary arteries...but until then, I will continue to shovel the junk in.
