Belated Happy Birthday to Marc

Happy Belated Birthday to Marc post here. His BIG special birthday was on Tuesday, June 30th. We had sung Happy Birthday to him on Sunday at the Elk's picnic. On his birthday we went out for lunch together. He opened his card and presents before we left. This is a passport holder for our upcoming trip.

Tuesday is his golf game with the league so he was happy to be able to go there.
Last night his daughter and SIL and Jack were over for dinner. We made lasagne.

It was very yum. Janet made "Warm Nutty Caramel Brownies". This picture does them no justice. They were soooo good. Here is the recipe. If you love chocolate..mmmmm..
Warm Nutty Cramel Brownies Brownies
1 pkg semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided
1 pkg brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
1 cup salted mixed nuts, divided
5 rolls milk chocolate-covered chewy cramels divided (40 pieces total) thats ROLO

Preheat 375. Brush large bar pan with vegetable oil. Chop 1.5 cups of the chocolate morsels. Combine brownie mix, water, oil, eggs and 1/4 cup of the brown sugar. Mix well. Fold in chopped chocolate pour batter in bar pan.

Chop nuts. Combine 1/2 of the nuts andre maining 1/2 cup brown sugar; sprinkle evenly over brownie batter. Bake 20-22 minutes or until wooden pick inserted comes out clean.

Cut 16 caramels into quarters. Place remaining 1/2 cup chocolate morsels into small glass measuring cup and microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until melted, stirring after each 20-second interval. Set aside.

Remove bar pan from oven. Immediately press 24 caramels evenly into brownie in 4 rows of 6 caramels each. Sprinkle quartered caramels and remaining nuts over brownies. Drizzle with spoon the melted chocolate evenly over brownies. Cut into squares (24) and serve warm uing with ice-cream if desired.

They were very yummy......mmmmm...

Happy belated birthday to Mark! Oh, I love lasagna and this looks so good! I know you had a great time!
Oh, Judi, I'm so thrilled to get to know you in Blogland. You don't know how much it meant to me when you told me you took my enchilada recipe and bought the ingredients at the store and told someone the recipe was from a friend in Texas! Oh, I consider you my friend from Canada! Take care, precious one!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
