Oh man! >.<;;

So... FSU's had a rough week this week and had to work two extra days because the boss's hubby is in the hospital. Yesterday, she went out to the bookstore and, while there, picked up a brownie mix by the Barefoot Contessa. I like to watch Food Network, and I enjoy baking and cooking well enough. FSU asked me to bake the thing up and to chill some wine for her for today and I did... >.<;;

I think it's extremely safe to say that, short of both of us suffering from a case of utter insanity or total amnesia, there's no chance in hell we'll ever buy the thing again. I like chocolate, honest I do! But I have limits, and this went *way* beyond them. You're supposed to cut the brownies into 9 pieces; we did 16. We barely choked down one piece each and I suspect both of us are planning on not wrapping the brownies and hoping they turn into cement blocks by tomorrow. They might be edible as topping or as accompaniment to ice/soy cream.

Next week's not looking much better for FSU, so I might dig into the good ol' recipe books and mags and see if I can't find a nice choco brownie recipe to make for her. Either that or a nice choco cake of some sort. I think I have plenty of choco here, and I can always make more of that terribly yummy candy recipe wombat1138 gave me. ^o^

(I'm definitely not looking forward to the sugar / caffeine crash that's going to happen from eating that thing... >.< )
