The Soup Diva

This is a great way to dress up packaged brownie mix; and so decadent!

  • 1 package brownie mix without nuts (about 10 oz)
  • 1 egg
  • Oil as directed on package (about 1/4 cup)
  • Water as directed on package
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce

Prepare batter as directed, using amount of water between amount directed for chewy and amount directed for cake-like. Stir in pecans and pour into 8 inch square or round pan sprayed with cooking spray. Drizzle caramel on top in random pattern; use knife or spatula to drag lines through batter and incorporate caramel into batter. Bake as directed on package. Serve warm with ice cream and chocolate syrup if desired.

Yea Weekend, It Is Here!

The weekend has come and it’s time to have some fun, or at least try to. I hope you all will have a great couple of days. This is Labor Day weekend in the USA so many will have a extended weekend, except me, I have to work on the holiday. It is good to be off at least for two days. Of course the weekend will be blogged and tweeted.

Picking A Political Fight Online

We are in a political season here in the USA and the rhetoric and war of words is reaching a fever pitch it seems. People who feel passionate about one thing or another will advance their arguments by picking fights with those who believe and feel differently from them. In all disclosure I do comment on posts from people who I disagree with but I don’t think I have ever posted anything on an individuals Facebook to pick a fight with anyone. People mix their politics and religion into a cocktail of confrontation where they feel like they have to advance their cause even when it means fracturing friendships.

I live in a very homogeneous part of the world where most folks are of one political, religious and socioeconomic class. If you aren’t of that type then usually you are looked at strangely. Free thought and independence is not always in abundance in the American South. Granted its better than it used to be but there is a long way to go for those who are on the outside of that archetype.

All I was doing today was doing my days work and someone goes and ruins it with a Facebook post on my timeline. I hope to have a better day ahead. Let’s see how it goes.

Flashback Friday – Neil Diamond – “September Morn”

This song seems to set the tone for the month and the coming season. Neil Diamond is an American treasure. Enjoy this classic.
