I followed this recipe and I think they turned out really well. However, Mike didn't have a seconds, so that usually means he didn't like them. My sister said they tasted like normal brownies and I don't think my other two friends had any. As for myself, I thought they were pretty good (picture above is for my dessert tonight.) They are a very cake-y type brownie though, so if you don't like that you won't like these.
Avocados are very good for you. They are a healthy type of fat and have lot of vitamins, such as vitamin E, B, fiber and potassium (source). They could also help lower cholesterol (source).
I have never bought an avocado, so to help me learn how to handle them, I watched a couple interent videos to help me learn how to peel and pit an avocado and how to mash and avocado.
They worked wonderfully!
The second new thing I made was Kebab, which is a meat that you eat with a pita. It comes from Iraq. I have a friend from Iraq that introduced me to it. My version wasn't as good as the one I had that someone else made, but they were okay.
I used these two videos to make it:
|This lady is as crazy as she looks!!|
|Mine didn't look quite this good|
After the Super Bowl, we played some Dance Central to burn off the calories we ate. :)
Tonight I have to fast because I'm getting my blood drawn this morning for a free cholesterol test through work. I hate needles and getting my blood drawn, but my cholesterol tends to be a bit high, so I like to swallow my nervous-ness and get tested when I can. I'll let you know how it turns out, when I get the results back.
Did you make anything good for Super Bowl?
