Kris Jenner Chocolate Brownies And Mung Beans Dessert

Today is a school declared holiday for Drama Queen and Cass. We had brunch at 10-ish a.m with the hubs and mil.  By 12 noon, our stomachs were growling already.  While our pot of mung beans + stinky grass + sweet potato 'tong sui' (sweet soup) was brewing on the stove, Drama Queen quickly baked a Kris Jenner (Kim Kardashian's mother) chocolate brownies.

Our tea-time consists of mung beans + sweet potato + stinky grass + palm sugar 'tong sui':

And chocolate walnut banana brownies baked by Drama Queen:

Our 'stinky grass' herb. Its scientific name is Ruta / Rue.  This herb pairs very well with mung beans. The Chinese old folks use it to eliminate toxins  and heatiness from the body.  Rue has a very pungent yet very pleasant smell. While some may get offended by the smell, others love its aroma.
