I was baking Brownies and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies for a fundraiser bake sale at the Spirit Lake park for Zerin Petersen on Monday, after the Spirit Lake Labor Day parade.
Every single time I try to make brownies from scratch they don't turn out so good. Not good at all.
And I wanted these brownies to be really, really good. So I had my hubby stop and pick up a few boxes of mix for me. I told him "get 4-6 boxes, depending on what kind of deal the grocery store is offering".
Yep, that's what I said. It sure is.
So on Friday, at Safeway, they were offering Pillsbury Brownie mixes - 10 boxes for $10. What a deal! I told him to get a few extras for our food storage.
(You do know that everyone's food storage must also include comfort food, right?)
So in hunting for more boxes, he and the Safeway manager could only find these:
Regularly $3-something per box. Nice manager man said he'd honor the 10 for $10 on these babies . . .
Yes, Chocolate Extreme Brownies. With Chocolate Syrup and Chocolate Chunks.
Now you fellow chocolate lovers out there understand. These are soooo good.
And my hubby KNOWS I am a Brownieholic. I have a real problem.
But, obviously he loves me chubby. Because a few extra boxes weren't good enough for his sweet wife (and kids. They can have some, too)
He HAD to get a whole case! Yes, I kid you not. This, on top of the 6 or 8 boxes of the regular Pillsbury brownies, which are fabulous in their own right.
An entire case. Twelve boxes. I probably would have only gotten "only" six.
Since I can't leave them aloneI told him that these would have to last for a whole year.
He said they MIGHT last for 6 weeks. Maybe. Since I am such a Brownieholic. (His words).
Judging from this empty cake dish, he may be right . . .
but - the kids, their friends, and hubby did help me eat them all up. . .
