I came home from church with a migraine, so there went my plans to tackle my too-long to-do list. I was in bed by noon and slept until about 3:30. Thankfully, the migraine was gone when I woke up. I was barely up in time to make these:
They're Orange Brownies and I saw the recipe on Pleasant Home's site. No, there is no chocolate in them, but they have a brownie like texture, hence the name. I made them for evening church tonight. Our church's founder, Bro. Louis Arnold, turns 97 tomorrow. Even though he longer pastors our church (he left the church at some point years ago to travel & preach), he's still a much-welcomed friend to our congregation. Since his 90th birthday, he's preached the evening service closest to the big day and then we celebrate as a church family afterward. Everyone was asked to bring a cake or pie and the church supplied pizza, chicken, and potatoes tonight. Our pastor teases that we've got him scheduled through his 100th birthday, but we'll need to renegotiate the contract then, lol.
Bro. Arnold founded our church about 46 years ago. He also planted 3 other churches in our city (including one just a few miles down the road), 4 others in the state, and 2 more in Cincinnati, OH, plus some others that I'm not aware of. He used to fly a plane around the city and preach from the plane and preached on the radio for years. You can learn more about Bro. Arnold here at his website.
My SS class has our biweekly meeting tomorrow at our teacher's house and I'm baking another batch for them. We're having tacos for the main dish.
