I'm awaiting the arrival of Irene on the South shore of Long Island. I just had a second healthy breakfast, but a second meal, nevertheless. My faith and trust is in God, and my prayer partner and I have prayed already today, so I believe we're covered in the Lord's protective grace. I'm also awaiting the arrival of my daughter and grandson who are living on waterfront property a few miles south of me and are basically evacuating. We're all stocked up, including GS's bike, in case streets are impassible after the winds die down. The two cats (brothers Alex and Sebastian) will also be spending at least the weekend at my house. So far my daughter seems in a good mood and I hope that prevails for the time we're together. I'm going to make pumpkin brownie mini cupcakes after I finish writing. I need something to do and making comfort food should help everyone later on. The minis are only 2 points each, so I can enjoy them without guilt.
RECIPE: *Time adjustment since original blog; increase baking time 10 mins.
one box Brownie cake mix
one 15 oz. can real pumpkin(not pie filling)
a "few" Tbsps. water
one tsp pumpkin pie spice
****Stir ingredients in mixing bowl until moistened
Bake at 350*about 35 minutes; I use mini cupcake tins,( use any size cake tins but adjust baking time for size)
Hope all in the path of Irene come through safely. Praying for the safety and well being of all.
