Work For Me Wednesday and Old Fashioned Brownies

Today's Work for Me Wednesday tip came by trail. Mainly cleaning up after I'd thawed meat in the refrigerator! When I put a package of meat in the refrigerator that has come straight from the meat counter and hasn't been re-packaged, I turn it upside down, usually on a plate, but sometimes it won't fit. By putting it upside down, the juices usually won't leak out all over.
Be sure and stop by We Are That Family to see what other ideas bloggers have shared!

I decided we needed something chocolate, so I got out this old cookbook again and found a brownie recipe. This one is more like a milk chocolate brownie. Everyone loved them, and they didn't last long. Mmm, nice and moist! I like that these don't use a lot of cocoa, it's a good recipe to keep on hand for when you're running low.

Old Fashioned Brownies

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
5 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam.

In a medium bowl whisk the flour, cocoa and salt.

Cream butter, shortening, brown sugar and sugar for 3 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients. Spread in prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.

I will have to try that. I usually just put it in a gallon ziplock so I don't have a mess in the fridge!

Great tip on the meat...I always shove things over and make room. The ziplock bag is a good idea too!

Those sound so yummy! I may just have to try them!

Thanks for sporting my button on your side bar!

Yum... I am so bad, I usually make a mix. Ugh. But this recipe looks terrific!
