Like I said, very little turned up when doing an advanced search using "brownie" in the title. It surprised me.
And I know LP Beier posted a brownie recipe here, but dang if I could find it using her name and the word brownie
Here you go! I posted that from my phone and it can be a pain to cut and paste a link.

The IKEA trip was awesome, got some odds and ends, but the larger purchases are what got us excited!

We got a hall cabinet for our entry that has 4 tilt out sections that will hold at least 12 pairs of shoes, there is also a drawer in the top to store mail. It's nice and slim and attaches to the wall which makes it more space efficient and accommodates the molding along the floor so it will be nice and snug against the wall. Rob has been wanting a hall table for our entry, but I've been resistant because I wanted something with more function that just a surface to collect junk!

I got one of their famous Poang chairs and ottoman for the bedroom, they are so comfy and I've wanted one for a while.

I had set aside some Visa gift cards from the wedding and it was so fun using them for house stuff!

That does sound like fun BC. We spent wedding gift money at Ikea too.

Thanks!
I wasn't very happy with the other recipe at all. Chocolaty, but thin and did not cut well, broke apart.

I cool these a bit and then pop in the fridge for a couple hours. I make a parchment sling and just lift them out after chilling. Put them on a cutting board and cut with a big knife, this makes nice, neat brownies. I've made them for numerous bake sales where I want them to look nice.

I'm trying to learn contractions. I'm also baking pumpkin bread for to freeze and keep until my parents arrive. I want to surprise them!

With love,

Kicking back and resting so I can hit the ground running tomorrow...big day making French bread. Orders for 30+ loaves so far and, as of today, I've made 10. They're in the freezer. If I press both my bread machines into service early tomorrow morning, they should be able to handle kneading and the first rise of another 10, if I stagger their cycles. On Thursday I'll deliver this group of 20 to my friend who is conducting the fundraiser.

Letting everything I learned today either soak in or leak out...we'll know tomorrow which it is. Relaxing, waiting for Shrek to call.

Pondering. I was actually excited about jury duty this morning. Criminal case. Had my Kindle at the ready for down times. All of us potential jurors showed up, but after 2 hours the defendant didn't, so we were dismissed. Now the guy has a warrant for failure to appear, and is in really big trouble!
