Back to the Basics
Our church meets at an elementary school on Sunday mornings.
The keys have to be picked up every Friday before the office closes and returned first thing Monday morning.
This past Friday, my sweet Valentine forgot to pick up the keys.
The conversation went something like this:
Supportive church planter’s wife: “So, you remembered to pick up the keys, right?”
Valentine: “Oh no, oh no, oh no…..”
Supportive church planter’s wife: “You’re kidding, right?”
His face went to his hands and he began to pace.
We scramble and make last minute plans to move our Sunday morning service back to where it all started:
Phone calls, texts, Facebook and Twitter updates go out.
And I bake to deal with the relocation stress. I bake hard.
I lifted the recipe from this blog. SO easy. Genius, really.
Double Stuff Oreos. Box brownie mix.
Prep brownie mix per box instructions.
But ignore the warning about NOT consuming raw brownie batter.
Grease muffin pan like crazy. I mean CRAZY.
Dip Oreo in brownie batter.
Eat a spoonful of brownie batter.
Place a batter dipped Oreo in the bottom of each crazy-greased muffin cup.
Bake @ 350 for 12 minutes.
Let sit for a bit and scoop out with a spoon.
But NOT the same one you use to eat the brownie batter.
And Sunday morning service at Grandmum’s house was not what we had planned but still sweet.
A good reminder of the journey we are on and how far God has taken us in such a short time.
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Dave took time to pray for our widows.
And he reminded the rest of us that we are to take care of them.
The little ones made sweet Valentine’s crafts and reconnected in the backyard.
And the Oreos were a hit, too.
