Week 2 begins............

I am bit ahead of schedule today.  I was able to go out and get a couple of pictures while everyone was at lunch to show the day's progress so far.  Can lights are in and the insulation has been blown into the walls. They are now putting the bat insulation up and the wall board. 

I have been trying to upload more pictures, but can't seem to get them today. 

Tonight's supper is the old standby of roast, potatoes, and carrots.  We are trying a crock pot dessert of  layered brownies.

Crock Pot  5 Layer Brownies

1 16 oz package of brownie mix
1/4 melted butter
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup coconut
1/4 cup oats

This is for a mini 1.5 quart crock pot.  If you use a larger one, you will need to add more topping
ingredients to spread over the entire brownie.

 Melt the butter (this can be done in the crock pot while doing other things).  Add water, egg, and brownie mix.  Stir until no powder is left dry...mix will be quite thick.

Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top.  Cover with the walnuts, coconut, and oats.

Cover and cook on high if using a small pot, low if using a larger one.  Test with a knife after two hours and if it comes out clean, cook for another 20-30 minutes with the lid off to get rid of extra moisture.  The edges pull away from the side when done. 

The time for a mini crock pot is approximately 4 1/2 hours.  You just have to keep checking. 

I will let you know how this turns smells wonderful as it is cooking!!

I'll be back soon with more pictures.  I seems much more fun watching it get put back together instead of being torn apart!!  Thanks for stopping by.
