Whole Wheat Brownies
The Earthquake night is almost here. We are busy putting together packets and making sure everything is ready for Wednesday's meeting. I hope you have had time to go over your fliers and will fill out the emergency information. Make sure to bring this with you to the meeting. It will be a great night and I hope that you will spread the word to your neighbors!!
On a side note: While at the dollar store today I came upon 1 quart boxes of shelf stable milk from Gossner's Dairy in Logan. They had whole and 2% and they expire in February of 2011. I grabbed a couple to have on hand because I have a 2 year old that lives off of milk and these will be great if I can't get to the store for the real thing. They also had some soy milk as well.
Since we are collecting wheat I am going to include a recipe that will get most people to eat wheat, BROWNIES! This is one of our families favorite recipes and it makes your dessert a little healthier. :)
