Last week was the PinterTest Kitchen, where I got the brilliant idea to try Pumpkin Brownies with Pumpkin Pie Frosting. Yep, that's what I decided to make for Friday night when we had friends over. I of course had to pre-test them out to be sure nobody would die upon eating one. They were amazing and the frosting was eatable all by its lonesome.
|Yes I licked that spoon... several times over|
Which turned out to be a good thing because since I packed the brownies away before they were completely cool, they became a gelatinous mess of a situation. They still tasted good but the texture was described as "Jello like" and "meatloaf like" thereby producing the new term of "Jelloaf." Yep, good times. Fortunately for us all, the icing was still amazing so we just started eating that with whatever else we had around.
We PinterTested this pin, which was a bust because apparently Superman doesn't like tunes, so he makes them inaudible. Or we just needed a different glass, but who on Earth has glasses other than superheroes?!
|Well that didn't work|
Friday night we were introduced to the joy that is the face bomb iPhone app. A great looking bunch of people, for sure!
This weekend is going to be AWESOME. Hubby and I are road-tripping it up to VA for apple-pickin' and I'm super stoked. It was amazing last year and I can't believe we get to do it again. Pure Fall magic with the windy, leaf-strewn back roads, the mountains, the orchard ON TOP of the gigantor mountain where you can see for miles around... happy sigh!
Monday we are taking the day off to go to the state fair! We hate the crowds and the craziness, but we have it down to a SCIENCE now and that includes going on a regular workday. I can't wait for caramel apples, the cake exhibit, pickles as big as my head, and fried milky ways! I'm especially looking forward to trying the fried cinnamon rolls with bacon and I think we might try to catch the pig races this time. I DID mention this is the South, right?
Fun times! Best season of the year EVER!
