So I Got This Brownie

I got this brownie yesterday. By today, I had only eaten some of it. That's how rich and chocolatey it was in its deliciousness.

I watch more than a few shows on the Food Network, and The Barefoot Contessa is one of my favorites. Ina made brownies once and added a little ground coffee to the batter. It enhances the chocolate, apparently.

"Make sure you use good vanilla."
(If you watch her show, you'll understand why this is funny.)

I thought to myself, "Ina is a smart cookie, and I sure as hell wouldn't want to meet her in a dark alley, but coffee? That is strange." (This coming from a girl who covets cafe mochas on an almost daily basis.)

Right, so I think that I detected a smidge of coffee in these brownies and it was beyond delectable. It was brilliant. I could barely eat more than a few bites.

I mean, look how much was left:

Here it is next to my chapstick,
to give you an idea of the size of this brownie monster:

My cell phone was only slightly larger:

The purple pen... well, it made the brownie look foolish.

But the staple remover cowered in fear of the brownie!

Right, so I still have that much brownie left, and it's been two days. I suppose that I should be proud that I didn't eat it all in three seconds, but still. That is a DAMN LARGE BROWNIE.

Hey, that's my favorite type of pen! Pentel puts out a fine product, I must say.

And that brownie looks delish. Coffee really does work to enhance the chocolate flavor, but you have to do it right, otherwise it just tastes like coffee.

And I mean to say Pilot, not Pentel. I don't know why I said Pentel considering that Pilot is the only pen brand I buy. I am so ashamed now.

JLR - HOLY CRAP, I am so embarrassed for you right now. I don't even know what to say.


But yes, I love those pens. I have them in six different colors at work!

Dude, I KNOW, right? If I were there right now, I couldn't even look you in the eye.

But I would bring you a brownie.
