The highlight of this week is the homemade brownies I baked on Sunday for dessert.  Imaginative One was craving brownies so he was happy when we had those for dessert.

This is how much was left on Monday.  The boys were fighting over who got the pieces stuck to the bottom of the dish.  (Click on the picture to go to the recipe.)

We followed the menu plan for this week except for the side dishes on Monday and Tuesday.  On Monday we had pasta roni instead of the rice a roni and on Tuesday we had regular corn bread instead of pumpkin corn bread.  It was nice following the menu.  It made getting dinner on the table easier.

Every year a local land trust plants sunflowers.  People flock to the sunflowers for pictures.  This year they bloomed later.  We had a rainy June so they were planted later in the season.  On Wednesday evening, we ate dinner and then went out to see the sunflowers.  Afterwards we went to our local dairy for ice cream.

An hour south of us is Cincinnati.  Cincinnati is known for the Bengals and Reds.  Most of all Cincinnati is known for the their chili.  It’s a sweet chili instead of a spicy chili.  So if you are looking for a chili that is different, try the Skyline chili.
