Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Hope you had a wonderful day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I managed to find my way back to the computer to share this little simple thing I did during the holidays. I’m not going to write it up recipe style as it’s just too damn simple. I had managed to freeze some of these brownies hence today’s picture and tonight’s after dinner enjoyment, mint brownies, mint chocolate chip ice cream and last but not least, the Champagne! You noticed that I didn’t expand on the after dinner part too awfully much, ha ha!! The fire place is also ready to go and as we toast to our love, our latest addition in our battery operated toys, Valentine Bears to serenade us with “I Say A Little Prayer For You”! What more could you ask for other that the perfect mate to share it all with!!!!! This year will mark our 28th  year of being together for Valentine’s Day and we both wondered how we put up with each other for so long! Just a whole lotta love and prayers…………….It’s just that simple!

 

To go back to these wonderful brownies, all I did was add one cup of mint chips that you can find during the holidays and online now and add them to one box of brownie mix. You can use your favorite brownie mix and add the mint chips to it or if you can’t find the chips, some mint flavored chocolate bars broken into small pieces. These were a big hit to all who enjoyed them with us. Like I said, simplicity at work!!!! Well I’m off to start our Valentine din-din and as I’m experimenting tonight, it could be great or then again, a disaster! Whichever happens, I’ll let you know and if the worst happens, maybe you can straighten me out ( God knows I need all the help I can get) or give me some subtle hints as to how to fix the problem I created………….Happy Valentine’s Day again and enjoy!

Looky, Looky; look who I found! After taking way too much time off, due to a mental breakdown in the kitchen, ha ha, I figured I better get back to work. But seriously, I really have not felt like being in the kitchen that much let alone coming up with new things to try. It’s also due to the fact that Husband and I have shaved back on how much we eat as the weight has piled on a little much! During my absence I did manage to do a couple of things and this meatloaf was one; I also have a couple of others simple recipes to get out in the near future and a few more ideas in mind. The holidays also had a big factor in posting as we have slowed down in getting all the decorations up, down and the house back to normal until next year (OLD AGE stinks!)…. This recipe was not originally meant to be a breakfast food but after making it for supper, all Kenny and I could think of was how it would taste as a compliment to our eggs in the morning and that’s how we finished the rest of it off. We sliced it and then tried to brown it, only problem we had was it kind of fell apart in the frying pan but it sure didn’t take away from the flavor, no sireeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Breakfast Meatloaf
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 medium size baking potatoes or enough to make one pound
  • ½ cup shopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • ⅔ cup dried bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Shred potatoes on a medium size grater, blot with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  2. Mix together with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Shape mixture into loaf and place in a loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until nicely browned.
  5. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

Simplicity at one of its best for sure, especially for breakfast! I mean you got your meat and potatoes all in one dish, just add eggs and toast!!

I’d also like to share that our daughter just graduated form WHU (Waffle House University) and is now a manager who will be running her own store starting this week! So proud of her!

Well I hope you enjoy and will forgive me for not being around in such a long time, later………Don’t forget to like us on Facebook  and Twitter and join our Saturday news letter..up there..at the top.. to keep up with the latest recipes!
