Some Special Treats
Treat #1:Anyone who has read my blog for any length of time knows one thing about me: I LOVE CHOCOLATE. And my weakness with chocolate is that if I make a plate of brownies I can't stop at one, or two, or well, you get the picture.
The other day, I found a wonderful recipe for a Low-Fat Brownie in a Mug. I love it. (I have to admit I put a little scoop of ice cream on top so the 83 calories becomes a little higher, but it's okay.)
1 tbsp Plain Flour
1 tbsp Granular Low Calorie Sweetener
1 tbsp Cocoa (natural, Unsweetened)
1/8 tsp All Purpose Baking Soda
1/8 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tbsp Unsweetened Applesauce
1/4 tsp Cinnamon Ground
Combine and pour into mug then pop into microwave for 1 minute!
I'd love to post a picture of the brownie in the mug, but this is the best I can do--an empty cup
TREAT #2: Allan and I took a lovely drive out to Girls Camp yesterday morning. He gave a Devotional and as always, did a wonderful job. Last year was the first year the Young Women went to this camp--it is in such a beautiful setting in Ontario--it is about a 2 1/2 hour drive.
It was so fun to see what they have been doing. YW Leaders are amazing to me. They had these on display--the girls' designs. Apparently this week they had a modesty fashion show--complete with a runway.
TREAT #3: I was so happy to receive an e-mail last night from a woman in Idaho who had just had Elder Rob and his companion in her home. She just wanted us to know he was doing well.
I loved that she included a picture.
SIDENOTE: I just can't resist including this picture of my little great grandson. Isn't this such a precious picture.
