Bucks for Brownies

I can't believe I get paid to start my day by making brownies.


I don't eat them, but I bake them, along with other desserts, salads, veggie chops and the like.  It's a great job.  And I know I've told you before, but I'm real happy to be back.

Really, really.

As for yesterday's bake.  More bean curd with tomatoes, green peppers and onions.  Simple, I know, but I love it just the same.  And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to work.  To make brownies.  For which they will give me a paycheck. 

Life is good.


  1. It's the simple things in life, isn't it? Go enjoy your morning!

  2. Alex: Thank you, Sir. I shall. And hey, big cover reveal party for you coming up. Cool beaners.

  3. I get paid for making cookies so I know exactly how you feel! But I must say that the bean curd dish sounds better to me right now than brownies. Did you post the recipe?

  4. Enjoy making the brownies.

    Yesterday's bake sounds delicious -- ain't nothin' wrong with simple!

  5. Oh my how I love brownies. I dream of brownies. Brownies are better than sex. And you get paid to bake them???? You are God!!!

  6. Great that your back at work and enjoying it. How is the back etc. holding out?


  7. What's a curd?
    Oh, I've came upon a brownies with roasted cherries recipe yesterday and posted it at my Facebook. Nom nom nom... Since I get acne from chocolate I usually make my brownies with peanuts and vanilla.

  8. Karen: No recipe. Just chop and roast your favorite veggies, season to taste and then about ten minutes before they are done, add the mashed bean curd and salsa (if you like), and bake uncovered for ten minutes or until you like it.

    Just a toss together kind of thing.

    Bard: Simple is good.

    JKIRF: I can't believe they give me a paycheck.

    Ian: Rough on the spine. I hurt most of the day, but I have great prep buddies that life all the heavy stuff.

    Dezzy: Bean curd is just what we call it. I dunno.

    Chocolate and cherries, very nice. Sorry about the acne, but it's good that you've found alternatives. That's the trick.

    Sherry: Sometimes it does :-)

  9. Brownies......yummmmmmmmmmm.
    They ARE better than sex.
    Unless you can incorporate the two.
    I hear they sell brownies with nuts.

  10. Hey Whisk! I just wanted to thank you. After a long absence from blogging it was very encouraging to see a comment on my first post back.

  11. Some days I get paid to knit. Those are pretty awesome days.

  12. That does sound like a good deal - I'm just afraid I'd be too tempted to lick the bowl. :)

  13. I hope you had a great day! There are worse things to do first thing in the morning. :)

  14. mmm, I love brownies. But it would be hard to bake them and then not eat them!

  15. Ooohhh brownies...my weakness...well aside from a good cheesecake or coconut cake. Yes, you are very lucky to get to make brownies for a living! :-)

  16. MMM. I could curl up with some brownies right now.

  17. Al: Another blogger feels the same way you do. But I don't think she mentioned nuts.

    Pierce: Welcome back, welcome back.

    Nicole: That is also cool.

    Susan: When the end of the skillet brownies back from from the dessert bar, lots of workers gobble those up.

    Dana: Sure is. Thanks.

    mshatch: Kitchen people nibble all ding dong day long. Some don't.

    Anita: I'm thankful to be cooking for a living.

    Susan: I'll teleport you some.

  18. I would so love to bake for bucks! I bake around here but I end up eating "weigh" too much ;D

  19. I'm happy for you. I couldn't bake anything to save my life let alone get paid for it.

  20. And now I want brownies! I suppose a piece of cake will have to suffice. =)

  21. YAY! Brownies for bucks is a GREAT exchange. Go, you!!!

  22. Sounds like a great way to make a living! Yes I'm a tad bit jealous, although I'd never last at a job like that because I'd eat everything lol!

  23. The bean curd sounds good, but I love brownies.

  24. Kim: The first time I worked here, I ate them. Now I don't eat anything unless it's to taste for adjustments.

    Grumpster: What have you tried to bake?

    Elsie: What kind of cake?

    Carol: Thanks.

    Azra: The food gets old though, really. Once you've tried everything.

    Sandra: How about a brownie bean curd?

  25. No one would pay me to bake brownies, because I can't be trusted alone with them!.. It's awesome when your job makes you happy.

  26. Brownies are one of life's great pleasures.

    Just as long as they're not the sort that wanker Seth Rogen would make.
