Now we are watching every penny here, well working on goal number 1. So this allows me to get cookbooks without hurting our budget. And, yes, I will admit I am a cookbook freak!
So in opening the new cookbook today, Ethan went flipping through it and he landed on Blondies, Mom you have to make these, seems simple enough sure! I went into the kitchen and whipped them up. A very easy recipe I will say.
Also today is the first day we have had sun in a very long time. Hubby and I were out mucking goats all morning. What a mess, from months of rain the poor goats were so water logged. We cleaned out the feeding area, we got clear down to the mats we put down before rainy season hit. Tomorrow we are working around the feeding area, clearing out all the old yucky hay.
Below, if you notice the blue water container, Jelly loves this toy, she has since showed Jasper how to jump on and stay on. So as we were cleaning, the toddlers were out running and playing and hopping all over this toy. They love seeing the sun and worry it will leave us as quickly as it came. So Below, Jasper is on top, Jelly to the right, Trooper to the left.

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup melted earth balance butter
1 cup pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together and add
1 1/2 cups flour mix (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup enjoy life chocolate chips
Mix all together and pour into a 13 x 9 inch pan. Back at 350 for 30-45 minutes. The recipe stated to bake at 20 minutes, I found 20 minutes is not enough. I ended up baking mine for 45 minutes before pulling them. They probably could have gone 5 more minutes.
