A Glance Back

Tonight at midnight we will be winging our way back to the Land O' Plenty (USA)--God willing and Korean Air flies :) I thought I'd do a last blog from Mongolia with a few scenes that really struck me. Ulaanbaatar is in the process of building a bridge not to far from our apartment. Walking up to and over the work in progress, I was struck--as I often am--at the collision of modern and old ways. I took 2 pictures standing at a center point on the new bridge of the new road. One picture faces the new work and the other faces the way the new road will take toward our apartment building. You can see how the modern buildings stand out against the ger districts; or the other way around.
On a less cerebral note, here is recipe for some STELLAR brownies I made for last week's Bible study ladies. Enjoy!

COCOA BROWNIES

4 large eggs
1 cup sugur
1 cup brown sugar
8 oz melted butter
1 ¼ cups cocoa, sifted
2 tsp vanilla
½ cup flour, sifted
½ tsp kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 300. Spray 8” square pan (parchment paper is extra helpful).

Beat the eggs at med until fluffy & light yellow. Add both sugars. Add remaining ing and mix to combine.

Pour the batter into pay and bake for 45 min. Check for doneness—toothpick inserted into the center of the pan should come out clean. May need another 10 or 15 minutes. Cool & cut.
