And a double Happy Monday to all of you whose kids started back at school today. Fuzz did, and the house is very, very quiet. I can’t wait to go pick her up and hear about her first day of third grade.
I spent part of the morning at the camera store learning how outrageously expensive good detachable flashes are and that I might as well buy a new camera, and the other part of the morning at the eye doctor getting my ocular pressure checked. Found out it was high, freaked out – convinced I was going blind, then got a call saying based on my records it’s always been high and to keep taking my meds.
As it happened, something good came of the visit as well. They had a copy of Southern Living in the waiting room and I got the scoop on their latest (August 2009) brownie recipe. I didn’t steal the magazine, but I remember it said the entire test kitchen agreed that these brownies were fabulous and that they were astounded that they all agreed. Heh. Furthermore, I got a comment from a reader not long ago saying this recipe, when slightly underbaked, was the closest she’d come to Miles of Chocolate.
And if that wasn’t enough to convince you try these, the magazine had a photo of some of the variations. One was a peanut butter streusel scattered over a regular chocolate brownie — simple but brilliant. I’ll have to try that tomorrow, but today was a Little Debbie Nutty Bar kind of day for me. That’s what I eat when I don’t bake.
Here’s a link to the oh-so-promising brownie recipe (So Good Brownies). Underneath the recipe, you’ll see the variations mentioned.
