Friend makin' Monday - Quick & Easy

Woo, it's Monday. We had a somewhat busy weekend. Friday, the hubby & I both took off work to attend the funeral services for a friend's mom. I hate that I am a sympathy crier! Anyway. Then I had to leave to go get Angel from school to get her hair done before the Freshmen Farewell dance.  This was like a junior high prom, since everyone was dressed up for dinner & dancing at a nice banquet hall.

I am so not ready for her to go to high school next year.

I also attempted to make these brownies that I saw on Pinterest for her annual studio competition team pool party.  It's a layer of cookie dough, Oreos, then a layer of brownies & bake.  Sounds quite drool-worthy.

Epic Fail!

I don't know what went wrong.  I made the cookie dough using their reduced fat recipe on the box & reduced fat Oreos. I also used EggBeaters instead of regular eggs in the brownie mix.  The cookie layer was too cake-like and the Oreos were just disgusting.  I don't think they were burnt, since nothing else was - they just don't bake well.  Black discs of grossness.  Needless to say....plan B was just regular brownies.
