Just Desserts


Lately I have been baking and my sweets of choice are ‘Black Bean Brownies’.    Made with kidney beans instead of black beans.    Following several attempts I believe that I have finally succeeded in baking a rather satisfactory batch.   This has been verified by a few friends.    As well as tasting yummy they are exceedingly healthy.    Crumbs I do sound like Mr. Kipling.    WPA- Woeful puns alerts- the following text may contain cringe worthy baking puns.   No apologies as this is how I roll.

As with any baking, all you knead is love.     And there is almost a guarantee that everything will turn out fine.     I said almost.     Whilst baking my brownies yesterday .    Buzz and Finn were gazing at me in the kitchen ( my two little Morkie dogs, if you are new to my site )    with their dough eyes looking for treats as they were being particularly good.    As I tossed them some treats I managed to spill the opened bags of chocolate chips all over the floor.     Buzz and Finn went mental scrambling for choccie chips.     I managed to grab hold of both of them and move them into the sitting room whilst I tidied up.    As chocolate is extremely toxic to dogs I was very anxious but thankfully they did not eat any.

Kidney beans are very high in fibre and as I found out later they make you fart rather a lot.    Whilst leaving the beach with my friends today I let one rip (as I had a brownie before our swim).    I was rather shocked with the ferocity of the fart and said ‘I think I know why they are called brownies……..’.   Thank goodness it wasn’t more than a fart but it was close.


That’s all for now


Stay fab
