*Go Suns!*

So, somehow I’ve found myself following sports. If you knew me, this would be quite a shock. I’ve never really enjoyed watching sports of any kind, but lately I’ve found myself getting nervous the day of a Suns game or using the exuse, “I can’t go-the Suns are playing.”

Anyway, the Suns played the Clippers last night in Game 7 and we had a get-together at Matt’s brother’s house. I love “get-togethers” because that is just another exuse for me to whip up some goodies and see if they are well-received.

First, I decided to make a variation of the brownies Nancy made awhile back. I didn’t have hazelnuts on hand, so my brownies turned out to be Raspberry Walnut Brownies. They were awesome! All of the boys, including Matt (who says he hates fruit flavor w/ chocolate) gobbled them up even before the last guest arrived!

I also whipped up some homemade guacamole and paired it along with Trader Joe’s Blue Corn chips. I loooove guacamole & I’m afraid I finished up the guac even before the boys finished the brownies!

So, basically, we were out of food by half time! woops! I’ll make a lot more next time.

btw, the Suns won! 🙂

Yea Julie! Your brownies look great!! I’m with Matt and don’t normally like the fruit flavor but raspberries are in a different class! I get the whole basketball thing – I used to joke that while others went to church I “worshipped at the NBA on NBC” Hurray for your Suns!

Thanks, kleo! Most people say it’s scary!

I can see how you would not want to watch sports, if you have worked in that industry. My boyfriend works as a rep for health food stores, so he hates going shopping in those same stores~I can’t blame him!

Speaking of sports, you are a good sport with that photo of yours.

I’m thinking of making Nancy’s pasta sauce today.
