Cream Cheese Brownies

I made these brownies for Wilbert to take to the congregational meeting at church last night, and apparently they were a big hit. He came back with an empty platter and a few requests for the recipe. So, here it is.

Cream Cheese Brownies
1 cup butter or margarine
4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
4 large eggs
1 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)

Cream Cheese Filling:
2-8oz packages cream cheese softened
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg

  1)  Heat oven to 350. Grease and 9X13 pan.
  2) Melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool while making cream cheese filling.
  3) For cream cheese filling, beat all of the ingredients together. Set aside.
  4) Beat chocolate mixture, sugar, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl. Beat in flour and salt. Stir in nuts.
  5) Spread half of brownie batter in the bottom of the pan. Spread cream cheese filling over batter. I sprinkled some chocolate chips on top of the batter. Drop remaining batter over filling and carefully spread over cream cheese layer.
  6) Bake 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Store covered in refrigerator.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
