Rich Oreo Chocolate Brownies
Friday is almost over and bef u know it its gonna be Monday once again... Hairi has been on medical leave for the past 2 weeks .. hes been in his room... watching telly... on his lappy .. the only time i get to see him is when hes hungry... i think if there were a kitchen on his floor.. i might not even get to see his face at all!! grrrr
He had to go to the hospital again a few days ago for some therapy and check up and was given 4wks medical leave on top of his already 2wks leave.. he later went to the camp to report sick and what happened next?? his officer told him that they wont accept his leave and that he was not allowed a 4wks medical leave but instead they got the doc to change it to a 2wks leave and a month of light duty.. kwang kwang kwang... when he told me abt it.. i was like.. smiling.. fm day one i told him that his op is absolutely unnecessarily and that hes only finding excuses to stay home.. all the trouble to only get 4wks leave instead of 6wks.. muuuuhahahha serves him right for not listening to hb and me..
So ok enough abt my stubborn boy... today i decided its time i try out my new brownie pan... saw this brownie recipe at homekreation and thought i shud gv it a try since lots hv tried baking em... not much to rave abt the taste of this brownie.. was not that super rich even tho i used valrhona chocolate and cocoa powder.. I guess after baking something like molten cake.. my expectation was high.... hb felt the brownie shud be sweeter (my fault oppss) .... i will take a bite tomorrow and see if it tastes better after a day and if not.. i can always serve it with ice cream hehehe
