Foodie Friday - TrainwreckS

I know what you're thinking...
How can this simple box 
of Brownie Mix
(not just any brownie mix
but Duncan Hines - the best you can get)
become a trainwreck?
Well....I can explain.....

You know that my back is quite sore,
and I really needed, I mean needed 
So, I know that Aleve is not mind-altering,
at least I hope not, (or I should not be 
held responsible for any task that
I  may have completed at all this past week)
Well, maybe if I took about 15 
of them in one day... they me be 
I attempted to make brownies.
I wanted the chewy ones,
I added the eggs, the oil, then I added
1-1/4 cup of water.  What a doofus!
It was brownie soup!
I thought I could salvage it by adding 
more dry ingredients, flour and cocoa powder.
Then I added milk chocolate chips 
for more sweetness.
The batter thickened up nicely.
Right? Not!

Although, this looks delicious,
It is in reality a chocolate-y frosted 
Disguised as a brownie!
At least it's chocolate.

Our Dear Gollum
more trainwrecks.

As a side note, our hygenist Tara 
pulled me aside and gave me a really intense
backrub today and I think she cured me!
I took a total of 3 Aleve today
and I feel like I am back to the land of the living!

I may even get a decent night's sleep tonight!

So glad your back is better--now DO NOT break a tooth on the brownies! Seriously, I think pain interrupts your thought processes. It can make you tired, crazy, and possibly ill tempereded :)

That is hilarious. I make these brownies all the time for my husband. They are his favorites. I would here about it forever if I did that!

A Hint of Home said...

Oh girl, you are not alone. Been there done that.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

I sure hope the back rub worked! I just hate trying to sleep when my back is hurting - no comfortable position. The brownies sure LOOK delicious. laurie

Melissa Wertz said...

Hey, as long as they are on the chewy side, I love chocolate bricks!

Mama said...

Robyn your bricks look delicious haha. I tried brownies once as usual for me they were a disaster.

I am so happy your back is feeling better thanks to your wonderful friend, back paid is no fun and it's the weekend, happy days, Kathy.

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Sorry about your brownie bricks. I've done a few like that myself. I remember one time that I forgot to put the eggs in and I already had it in the oven so I pulled it out and tried to add the eggs. Ugh!

mbkatc230 said...

Sorry to hear about your back, but glad that it sounds like you are on the mend. This reminds me of my first foodie friday trainwreck post - bricks, hockey pucks, whatever, if they have chocolate in them I'll probably try to eat them! Kathy
