A Chocolate Lab Experiment

Someone who lives in my house, whose name may or may not start with an “A,” took a full pan of brownies to a Girl Scout function tonight, even though her dog, whose name may or may not start with “S,” stuck her entire face in the pan prior to it going in the oven. In this woman’s defense, it WAS her daughter’s 7th birthday and she had a lot going on. There was the American Girl Movie to see at the mall (great flick…or so I’ve heard), there were 7 neighborhood kids running through the house on a girl against boy rampage, her husband was working from home, her son’s Lego masterpiece got destroyed for the second time in a week during said rampage, and she was packing for her family’s beach vacation. Her daughter doesn’t like cake, so the brownies were the official birthday dessert—get it? Brownies for the Brownie meeting? A 350 degree oven will kill anything, right?

I'm with you. 350 degrees ought to do it. And I'm with S - brownie mix rocks. If you'd given her the spatula in the first place, perhaps she wouldn't have gone for the whole plan. Not that I ever did that with my mother...

Love the new sketch!

I agree with Pamela. Now 325 - we may have had a problem there, but 350 is FINE. Besides, as long as none of the Brownie Troop mom's have or read blogs, 325 wouldn't have mattered either.
