the happiest brownie on earth

August 29, 2011

This weekend we took the youth group to our first outing with J as youth pastor, a Waverly concert. The band that opened was a local church band, and they were actually really good.
Then Waverly came out. Our guys actually started chanting drum solo at the end, ha, and the whole band came back out. It looks like we will be having fun with this group over the next few years. 
I also finally got around to redoing the Saint's wreath from last fall. It was looking super skanky from all the rain here and complete lack of an overhang to protect it. So here is the new one, it was of course inspired by Pinterest.
Now lets get to the good part. We had a dinner on the grounds at church Sunday so I made my pasta salad and yet another Pinterest inspired dish. Let's just call them happy brownies, because I have no clue what they called them. Plus I took such a huge short cut that I was surprised Sandra from Semi Homemade didn't crawl out of my cabinet. 
First take about 1 1/3 tubes of cookie dough and smush it into your pan. I told you I was taking the "Semi Homemade" take on this. 
Now put a pretty little layer of Oreo's. 
Pour over your brownie batter and bake for 50 minutes at 350. 
End product, exactly what I imagine heaven to be like.
