I made Monet's Pumpkin Brownies for the second time in two weeks. The first time that I made them, I didn't even get a picture, they went so fast.. Our neighbors were having a bonfire to christen their new gigantic fire pit. What could be better to have than these wonderful, moist rich, chocolaty, pumpkiny (is that a word?) brownies. I could go on and on:) See for yourself, if you need a quick, delicious addition to your Thanksgiving desserts.
Monet and her family are going through a challenging, stressful time in their lives right now. Monet's nephew, Ryan, 22 mos. had a near-drowning experience in October, and is currently in a Children's hospital in the Denver area. Monet is a very sweet, thoughtful person, and I've never met her, but I would certainly like to.
She just keeps baking these amazing sweets and breads. Please keep Monet and her family in your thoughts and prayers
The second time that I made the Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies was for my Dad's 91st birthday. He's in a nursing home, in a wheel chair with Dementia, it's like he's in his own little world. What better to make for his birthday, but Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies! My brother, two of his kids, my husband, and myself went to see him yesterday. That's the picture of my Dad, my niece, and me. Every time I go to see him it's bittersweet., remembering the man he used to be and the man that he is now. He seems happy in his own little world, so at this point that is all I can ask, and to love him.
