Work Treats

I was in charge of bringing snacks this week to work (and cleaning the staffroom), and wanted to balance out the sweet and salty/savoury each day.  Yesterday I brought some brownies with Caramilk pieces, and they turned out really well.


I used some Costco mix and made it according to the directions on the box.  I poured half of it in the pan and topped it with Caramilk squares and then poured the rest of the brownie batter on top and baked for about 50 minutes.

 

They were decadent with layers of chocolate and bits of caramel dotted throughout.  Mmmmmmm!

 
 
Supper this evening was Angela's 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta.  It was super easy to make and absolutely delicious.  Warning: It is very garlicky, so don't eat before going out on the town!


Not that attractive looking, but apparently it is her most popular recipe!  I will definitely make it again.

Other eats lately have included trout with mixed organic beans and asparagus:


And haystacks (layer of rice, topped with layer of grated cheese, layer of taco beef, and then any other taco toppings you like such as: olives, tomatoes, crushed taco chips, salsa, sour cream, cilantro):


Have you made any new recipes yet this week?  
Any planned for later in the week?
Do you ever bring treats to work?  Do you have a rotation for treat bringing/staff room cleaning?

I made Chicken Pot Pie soup yesterday and it was fabulous. Today I'm trying steaks in the crock pot for the first time!
I remember book marking that recipe from Angela a long time ago, but never ended up making it. Not sure why!

I love that avocado pasta recipe so so much. It's one of my faves from her website. So delish!

I have not made any new recipes this week, but I am planning on making one this weekend!
