Give the guy a brownie
June 10, 2021 3:36pm CST
My hubby has dropped numerous hints over the years that he loves brownies. He has also dropped numerous hints over the years that I never bake him any brownies. A while back I noticed a recipe for brownies on the bag of Splenda brown sugar. Since I do not have any great recipies for brownies, I thought that I would get around to trying this one. Today was just that day. I used gluten free flour and the Splenda brown sugar among other ingredients. We are having chicken breasts with apple butter barbeque sauce, baked potatoes, corn on the cob and obviously a brownie for dessert tonight. I hope that this ends his complaining about never having any brownies. ~Photo is mine

No, I am not a fan of brownies either. I have to tell you why though. When I was young, my mother put out a recipe card for me to make some brownies. I was only about 7 years old and still needed supervision. I added 1/2 cup of salt instead of 1/2 teaspoon. Imagine my family's horror when they took a bite of the brownies that I made.
Yeah, he should be happy, he loves chicken, corn on the cob, and brownies. I bought a double box of ice cream drumsticks-his favorite and made us a beautiful fruit salad. He works really hard, and he deserves some special treatment when he gets home and I make sure that he gets it.

Never say never, right ? Although I love my chocolate, I am not a big chocolate dessert fan, but my husband does love brownies. I don't make them, but well, my big chocolate dessert loving teen daughter will bake them .
@Juliaacv Enjoy the brownies. I was somewhere and almost bough brownies. Have not had them in ages. Also they had mini cupcakes and have not had cupcakes in ages. I did not see frosting so did not get either. That was so nice of you to bake the brownies.

Did those brownies taste as good as they look in the picture? (by the way I love your coutertop) I've never been good at baking brownies but all three of my daughters make great brownies. Your dinner sounds delicious. Apple butter bbq sauce (is that a homemade recipe or is it a bought one?) I'm intrigues by the combination. Of course the rest of your dinner is right up my alley.
Yes, they were alright, he loved the brownies. Apple butter barbque sauce is sold by the bottle at M&M Meats, and we really like it on meatballs instead of the sweet and sour as well as on chicken. He told me that it was a great day to be Ron, I spoiled him rotten yesterday.
I don't know, I look forward to trying them though. I sent a picture in a text to our son......he replied by telling me that they are coming into town in a little while to go to Costco, and casually offered to pick me up anything if we need it and stop by afterwards. He wants brownies, I just know him too well.
