Memorial's Day Brownie Pie
Happy Memorial’s Day!
Most are celebrating this holiday with cookouts, beach trips, etc. For me it’s a 3 day weekend of relaxation. I have been going every weekend of this month so I am enjoying this 3 day weekend in the house, no out of town trips because I’m tired of driving and could just REALLY use the rest.
I hope all is having a safe and happy holiday weekend. This is a day to remember the ones that have died while serving in the US Armed Forces. I have a few family members that were part of the US Army but none that died while serving; I’m thankful for all that the US Armed Forces has done for the USA.
While walking into the grocery store yesterday morning I saw these M&M’s and decided to bake something up in celebration of this holiday with them. Didn’t want to do just an M&M cookie, so I took my sister’s suggestion and made brownies.

They are rather tasty! J Enjoy your holiday all and be safe! J
